Dental Fillings

Dental fillings 

Dental fillings are used to repair damaged or misshapen teeth.  Damage to teeth can be from wear, decay or injury. Fillings can sometimes even be used to make misaligned teeth look straighter.

Traditional fillings were made from amalgam and were silver in colour but at Balmoral Dental Centre we only use white filling materials, which also allow for the most conservative treatment.  This means that that as much of your natural tooth as possible is preserved.

If a filling is needed, we will also do our best to identify the cause to help you avoid similar problems in the future.

The aim of a dental filling is to have the tooth looking and functioning like a natural tooth.

Fillings are appropriate for small to medium sized defects and each case needs to be assessed for the most appropriate option.  We can explain the options and give you information to allow you to make the best decision for your situation.
