Fillings

Fillings

If your teeth are cracked, chipped, or otherwise damaged, fillings are a popular way to restore their health. They're also safe and quick. Here at our practice, we believe in conservative dentistry - which means that we do everything possible to preserve healthy tooth enamel, while removing decayed tissue. We offer cosmetic colour-matched composite fillings and amalgam fillings. A tooth filling means using a material to "fill" in the hole of a tooth that decayed. The dentist removes all decay before the chosen material is packed into the space. This procedure ensures that the tooth will be protected from pain, sensitivity and further decay.

Benefits of Fillings

Amalgam Fillings

Amalgam fillings are made from a mixture of metals, which gives them their dark grey colour. This can make them quite visible in the mouth. However, modern dentistry now allows us to use hard-wearing white fillings that blend in with your natural tooth colour. This means that nobody will ever know you have had a filling!

White Fillings

Composite fillings are a good option for people who want their fillings to be the same colour as their teeth. Composite fillings can be matched to the colour of your existing teeth, and they bond with teeth chemically to give added strength. They're also more versatile than other options due to their ability to fill smaller, awkwardly-shaped cavities - so less preparation is required.

What Should I Expect?

Fillings are something that dentists do every day, so there's no need to worry. The procedure usually shouldn't take more than half an hour, if everything goes according to plan. You might be given multiple pain-killing injections depending on the problem. Just try and stay calm during the filling. Your dentist will probably advise you to avoid things like really hot, or cold drinks, for a day or two after the filling also. There might be some residual pain, but other than that, there's not much else to worry about!

I absolutely love coming here for my checkups and treatments, the team are so friendly and professional. Mark at the reception desk is always really helpful and we have a nice chat before I go into my appointment. I’ve been coming here for a few years now and definitely won’t go anywhere else, I went somewhere else in-between and had work done that wasn’t done properly and some that wasn’t needed at all, needless to say Dr Zagzag was fantastic and redone the work and removed the fillings that weren’t needed. I went in for my regular check up today and everything was looking good! He’s always happy to answer any questions I have and his dental nurse is really friendly too, I always feel welcome when I’m seen here. I highly recommend this practice, I’m very well looked after.
