Today’s modern diet is unkind to our teeth and unless we have a great dental home care routine, the chances are at some point you may need a filling.
A filling is the removal of caries or decay from the surface of the tooth and ‘filled’ with either amalgam (silver) or composite (white filling) material. Both are strong and effective at protecting your teeth.
It is more common for white fillings to be used on front teeth for aesthetic reasons and silver fillings on the back teeth for strength.
If you have silver fillings and would like them replacing for aesthetic reasons, we can do this on a private treatment basis.
