Fillings

Your choices, and how to avoid fillings

A filling, quite simply, is the process of removing a decayed or damaged part of the tooth, and filling the cleaned out area with material to imitate your tooth.

Why do I need it?

If you have a build-up of tooth decay, the enamel of your tooth can be damaged, and this outer layer that protects your teeth needs to be replaced. If you leave a cavity untreated, you will experience tooth-ache, and eventually, the tooth will require a root canal, extraction or other more severe treatment.

Can I get my silver fillings replaced?

Yes. You can change your silver or gold fillings to white if you wish. It’s a simple, quick procedure, and can ensure you’re got a bright white smile!

White Fillings

Nowadays, especially with front teeth, people want their teeth to be made as natural looking as possible. Silver looking (amalgam) fillings are undesirable looking, and with the ability of the dentist to match the white of the filling to your unique tooth colour, silver fillings are now rarely used.
