When do I need a filling?
As well as being used to replace metal fillings, fillings can correct problems like:
- Tooth decay
- Discoloured teeth
- Gaps between teeth
Signs that you may require a filling include toothache, bad breath, sensitivity, pain when eating, and dark areas on the tooth’s surface.
White (composite) fillings are made of ceramic and powdered glass added to a resin base. This can be adapted to a shade that matches your teeth, so it blends with your smile perfectly.
