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.
Dental Fillings we offer at Shirley, Croydon Dental Clinic :
- 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

COVID 19 Re-Opening Update
We were happy to hear the announcement on the daily government update on the 28/05/2020 that dental practices can open from the 8/06/20. Given the short notice, we will be looking to ready the practice for a phased re-opening. The good news is that a lot of preparation has already been done, so we anticipate re-opening in the next few weeks and as soon as practically possible.
We will be working firstly on booking patients who have called us during our closure to assess and treat their problems on a priority basis in accordance with the treatments we are able to offer. Initially this will not be for routine appointments as our priority will be to treat those in most urgent need. Those that have upcoming routine appointments will be contacted and rescheduled as needed.
If you have an outstanding concern, that we are aware of and has not changed, please wait for us to contact you in due course.
If you develop a new concern, then please contact us on 020 8656 7627, so we can offer you the appropriate advice and add you to our waiting list.
Whilst we will be using additional infection control and social distancing measures, it is important to understand that at Shirley Dental Practice, we have always chosen to adhere to strict infection control procedures in line with our policies, in order to provide a safe environment for dental care.
This information is provisional and subject to change depending on further guidance, that we are receiving on a daily basis. We will endeavour to keep you updated with the new measures that you will be required to follow when coming to the practice.
Thank you again for your patience and we look forward to seeing you soon!
Shiv, Minal and the Team at Shirley Dental Practice.
