You may need a filling if a tooth has broken or decayed. We use white fillings matched to your existing tooth colour, giving a more natural look that blends with your other teeth.
The filling is made of a synthetic resin composite and is extremely hard wearing. The filling is shaped to match the correct height of the damaged tooth and then smoothed to give a natural and comfortable ‘bite’ when you are eating.
Fillings can be used for aesthetic purposes or for clinical reasons due to dental decay.
The decay is removed and the filling is used to restore the tooth back to its original shape. Tooth restoration is very important in order to keep teeth in a healthy condition and minimise tooth loss.
We use different types of filling materials:
- Composite (white or tooth coloured)
- Glass Ionomer
- Fissure Sealant
