Fillings are one of the most basic methods of restoring teeth. They do exactly what their name suggests – they fill a hole in the tooth that has been caused by decay, playing an important role in helping us to keep a tooth for many more years.In the past fillings were always made out of either gold or a silver-coloured alloy called amalgam. Both of these materials are extremely durable and in some circumstances they are still the best choice available. But they both have one disadvantage – they do not match the natural white teeth in appearance.
We use the most effective, modern, tooth-coloured materials to enable you to have almost invisible fillings. Unlike the more traditional grey amalgam fillings, the tooth-coloured ones look very natural, so no-one will be able to tell you have them. We can use either a special type of reinforced plastic called composite, or a variety of different ceramic materials related to glass or porcelain. This means that we can create beautiful, natural looking fillings that won’t spoil you smile.
