All or our dentists are proficient at restoring teeth using tooth-coloured filling materials.
The acids that are produced in your mouth after you have eaten or drunk something sweet can soften the hard, protective enamel and bone-like dentine of a tooth. Dental decay damages your teeth, often to the stage where a restoration, in the form of a filling is required. Some people are more prone to dental decay than others.
Traditional, metal fillings are usually made of a mixture of metals known as silver amalgam. These are a strong and long-lasting solution but may require the removal of more tooth structure than tooth-coloured, composite fillings and do not give a very aesthetic result.
A tooth-coloured filling can replicate the natural structure and colour of the tooth and is often difficult to detect once it has been placed. Another advantage of tooth-coloured fillings is that they contain no toxic materials, for example mercury.
Dental decay is progressive, and we would always recommend that you visit your dentist as soon as you suspect a problem. We will be happy to advise you on the best course of action.
Our tooth-coloured fillings range in cost from £75 to £200 depending on the size and complexity of the restoration.
