Dental Filling

When your tooth shows signs of decay – a breach into the tooth causing damage as it spreads – it requires a dental filling.

The decay may present itself as a small dark spot, some sensitivity, or maybe something more obvious like a broken tooth. In all cases, we can help not only to slow it down but to stop it before any further tooth damage is caused by offering dental filling treatment.

Is it better to have a tooth filling treatment, sooner or later?

When you visit for a dental check-up, we are looking for signs of decay or little cracks and fissures. Anything that might require treatment will be explained to you so you are fully aware. A small tooth filling is a lasting preventative solution that far outweighs a root canal treatment, which can be the result of extensive decay usually left for a longer period of time. Our fillings treatment will restore your tooth, preserving as much healthy tissue as possible, in the least invasive way.

What kind of dental filling treatments are available?

When it comes to tooth filling treatments, there are a number of different materials that can be used to fill a dental cavity.

An indirect tooth filling may require a couple of visits, as the tooth is treated with a tailor-made filling that has to be crafted to your needs in a dental laboratory before fitting. A direct dental filling can be applied in one sitting. White or tooth-coloured materials prove to be the most popular of these options, as they remain the most discreet and natural-looking for tooth filling.

Tooth filling material options:

  • Gold
  • Silver (Amalgam)
  • Composite
  • Porcelain
  • Non-precious metal alloys

Should you require tooth filling treatment, your fillings dentist will discuss the different options available and advise on the most suitable for you and your teeth.
