We make use of the latest technology for the filling process, allowing us to provide you with a perfect smile without the unsightly remnants of foreign metals in your mouth.

What are Tooth Fillings?

When small amounts of decay occur on the tooth, it wears away causing holes or dents in the teeth, called cavities. These cavities are the places where food gets caught which is the core cause of decay. Fillings are designed to fill the holes in teeth so that further decay can be eradicated.

In times past this was done using metal which was easily moulded and was long-lasting.

How is Tooth-Coloured Fillings Different?

With the help of new technologies, fillings can be made of the same colour as your teeth, allowing you to smile with confidence. These fillings make use of synthetic resins to fill the cavities, leaving your teeth looking better than they originally were.

How long do fillings last?

The older metallic fillings typically lasted for around 15 years. Tooth coloured fillings have a life of approximately 10years but in some cases can last longer.

One may experience sensitivity to hot or cold food items following the procedure, however; this will subside as the tooth heals itself.
