Many people have one or more fillings and this treatment is excellent for preserving and fully restoring a tooth.
Why Would I Need a Filling?
You may need a filling if you have tooth decay or if a tooth has suffered some sort of trauma and where part of its original structure is now missing. By placing a filling, we can protect the tooth, preventing further infection and decay. A dental filling will restore the shape and strength of a tooth so you will be able to eat and talk comfortably and with confidence.
What Are Fillings Made from?
We prefer to place composite resin fillings. Composite resin is a strong and durable material that is highly compatible with your natural tooth structure and is available in a wide choice of shades. Our dentist will ensure your filling blends in beautifully with your natural tooth, creating a restoration that is virtually invisible.
