Dental Fillings

Description of Image

We offer high-quality dental fillings to restore the health and appearance of your teeth. Our experienced team is dedicated to providing you with the best care using advanced materials and techniques.

What are the dental fillings used for?

Dental fillings are used to repair and restore teeth that have been damaged by decay or trauma. The filling material helps to restore the tooth’s shape and function, preventing further decay and improving overall oral health.

Types of dental fillings we offer

White composite fillings

What are white composite fillings?
White composite fillings are made from a tooth-coloured resin material that blends seamlessly with your natural teeth. These fillings are ideal for repairing cavities and minor damage in visible areas of your mouth, providing an aesthetic and durable solution.

Benefits of white composite fillings:

  • Natural appearance: The tooth-coloured material blends with your natural teeth, making the filling virtually invisible.
  • Bonding strength: Composite fillings bond directly to the tooth structure, providing excellent support and stability.
  • Versatility: Suitable for both front and back teeth, composite fillings can be used for a variety of dental repairs.
  • Less drilling: Often requires less removal of healthy tooth structure compared to other types of fillings.

Maintenance tips for white composite fillings:

  • Good oral hygiene: Brush and floss regularly to maintain the health of the filled tooth and surrounding gums.
  • Avoid hard foods: Chewing on hard objects or foods can damage composite fillings, so take care to avoid these.
  • Regular check-ups: Visit your dentist regularly to monitor the condition of your fillings and ensure they remain intact.

Silver amalgam fillings

What are silver amalgam fillings?
Silver amalgam fillings are made from a mixture of metals, including silver, mercury, tin, and copper. These fillings are known for their strength and durability, making them an excellent choice for restoring molars and other teeth subjected to heavy chewing forces.

Benefits of silver amalgam fillings:

  • Durability: Highly resistant to wear, making them ideal for back teeth that endure significant chewing pressure.
  • Longevity: Amalgam fillings can last many years with proper care.
  • Cost-effective: Generally more affordable than composite fillings.
  • Strong and reliable: Provides robust support for large cavities and areas where significant tooth structure has been lost.

Maintenance tips for silver amalgam fillings:

  • Maintain oral hygiene: Brush and floss regularly to prevent decay around the filling.
  • Monitor wear: While durable, amalgam fillings can wear down over time. Regular dental visits ensure they are checked and replaced if necessary.
  • Avoid extreme temperatures: Very hot or cold foods and drinks can cause amalgam fillings to expand or contract, potentially leading to cracks.
