Dental Fillings

Stop Hiding Your Smile

Dental fillings are one of dentistry’s most basic and time-honoured treatments. They are used to improve the health and beauty of teeth that have been compromised by decay, cracks, fractures, chips or simply worn down. Such teeth are prepared by removing decayed or affected portions, then filled with a strong dental material to restore their original size and proportions. There are many types of filling materials available. two most widely-used options: composite fillings and silver amalgam fillings. Although silver fillings have been used in dentistry for over 100 years, health concerns have been raised. We often advise the replacement of these older silver fillings with newer, tooth-coloured material. We use dental composite resins for fillings, simply called composites. They are also white in colour, can be matched to the whiteness of your other teeth, are strong, stain-resistant and require less removal of your tooth structure than amalgam fillings. Composite fillings are highly durable, and will last many years, giving you a long lasting, beautiful smile.
