Dental Filling for a Beautiful, Healthy Smile
Dental fillings restore structure, strength, and functionality to teeth that have been decayed or broken. If you experience any of the following symptoms, you may need a filling:
- Pain when eating
- Sensitivity to hot, cold, or sweet consumables
- Food trapping
If a dental examination and radiograph confirms that you need fillings, it’s important to schedule an appointment immediately, to prevent an infection that could damage the nerves in your teeth.
Types of Dental Fillings we offer at Shirley Dental Practice:
- Traditional silver coloured fillings made from amalgam, which is strong and durable.
- White fillings that consist of tooth coloured composite resins which are bonded to your tooth. These restorations are aesthetically pleasing because they blend in naturally with your own teeth, whilst also providing direct support to weakened tooth structures.
We also provide tooth-coloured ceramic fillings called inlays and onlays, which are typically used to treat larger cavities. Natural in appearance, these restorations preserve more of your natural tooth than full crowns.
Our experienced team is dedicated to offering you a relaxed, comfortable dental experience at all times.MEET THE TEAM
