The fillings are made of a tooth-coloured mixture of plastic and ceramic and blend seamlessly with your natural teeth.
Before the procedure, your affected tooth, and surrounding areas are numbed with a local anaesthetic to avoid any discomfort. Then your dentist removes the decay from inside the tooth, filling it afterwards with a tooth-coloured material.
White fillings require less preparation than silver fillings, so more of your natural tooth is preserved. The filling is also placed in layers, so it provides more support to your tooth structure.
More patients are choosing to get white filling replacements to boost their confidence in their smile. It is possible, but an examination of your current filling is necessary before any treatment can take place.
It is with great sadness that due to the unprecedented circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, we are not permitted to see any patients in person. We will be operating reduced hours for a telephone advice service only.
If you are a registered patient of the practice and you have severe dental pain and facial swelling please call 020 8866 0362, between the hours of 9am and 1pm on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
If you cannot get through, please kindly leave a voicemail message and one of the team will call you back. We wish you and your loved ones good health and wellbeing during this difficult time.
