A filling is used in order to repair a tooth which has been affected by decay, cracks, fractures etc. In a single dental appointment, the affected portion of the tooth will be removed, and the remaining space will be cleaned and filled with a tooth colored filling.
There is a choice of filling available, with their own advantages and disadvantages. When choosing what material you prefer, consulting with our dental team is advised. Composite fillings are tooth colored and designed to match your natural teeth. Other options which are also aesthetically pleasing are available.
As with some other dental restorations, white fillings are not permanent and may in future need to be replaced. But, they will often last for many years, and provide you with a fully restored smile and boost your confidence. You may also be interested in tooth whitening treatments.
