Dental Fillings (bonding)

A dazzling smile can make you feel like you’re worth a million dollars, so if your smile isn’t quite up to scratch, then we can help restore your confidence. If your teeth are cracked, broken, worn or decayed, then you may need a filling.

What are Dental Fillings?

Fillings are inserted when there is a cavity in the structure of your tooth, whether caused by decay, bruxism (the grinding of teeth) or damage. Some fillings can last up to 15 years if looked after properly while also offering the added bonus that they are a less invasive alternative to crowns.

Different cavities are filled with different types of dental material. Amalgam fillings are made of a combination of metals, including silver, tin, copper and mercury. Though durable and able to withstand grinding and pressure, they are not as aesthetically pleasing and can be seen in the tooth. However, tooth-coloured fillings to match the colour of your teeth are also available. While commonly used in teeth that are visible, tooth-coloured fillings are not suitable for the back teeth where grinding may occur.

Some Things to Consider

Fillings can result in increased sensitivity for the teeth in that sometimes lasts a long time. Fillings can also fall out, crack, corrode and leak, requiring replacements.
The most common types of fillings are the composite and glass ionomer options. They are soft and can be moulded to the shape of the tooth before they harden. The materials used in tooth-coloured fillings can also be used on the outside of the tooth – on chipped or worn teeth, for instance.

Composite Fillings

Composite fillings improve the colour, shape, size, and texture of teeth to make them more attractive. You can stop worrying about metal fillings that feel uncomfortable and look unpleasant. Our fillings are made from a white material that blends in with the natural shade of your teeth. Composite fillings are virtually undetectable and require only a single appointment to apply. You can change your old amalgam fillings to white composite fillings.
The bonding process (composite filling process) with no abrasion from the teeth or, if necessary, a very slight abrasion is the process of re-contouring the tooth. This process, which is made with composite materials reinforced with aesthetic features, is completely painless. With bonding, it is possible to eliminate the crowdings, fractures or interdental spaces called diestema. Today, in case of compatibility with the latest developments and application principles of composite filling techniques, both aesthetic and durable tooth-colored fillings can be made.
