Dental fillings are used when sugar from foods and drinks have caused dental decay. By removing the decay and replacing with a filling your tooth will remain healthy and avoid a potential infection from developing in the nerve, which can lead to an abscess.

Dental decay can normally be easily detected by looking in the mouth and by using small x-rays.

Once you have had your full assessment one of our clinicians will inform you of any areas of decay and recommend the appropriate treatment.

We will also focus time on education to avoid new decay from beginning in the mouth in the future and to prevent your fillings from leaking.

Amalgam Fillings

Amalgam fillings, also known as silver fillings, are a durable and long-lasting option for repairing cavities. Made from a mix of metals including mercury, they are strong and affordable. However, some people prefer tooth-colored composite fillings due to aesthetics and concerns about mercury. The NHS and the American Dental Association (ADA) both consider amalgam fillings safe. We still take some safety precautions during placement and removal to make the procedure completely risk free.

Composite Fillings

Composite fillings, known for their natural look, are tooth-colored repairs for cavities or chipped teeth. Made from a resin and glass mixture, they bond to the tooth for added strength. Unlike traditional amalgam fillings, which are silver-colored, composites can be precisely matched to your unique tooth shade, making them nearly invisible. While not quite as durable as amalgam fillings, composites are a popular choice, especially for front teeth, due to their aesthetics and ability to preserve a more natural tooth structure.

Fillings start from £150
