Dental fillings are one of the most common procedures that dental practitioners undertake. We use filling material for many procedures, such as chipped, broken, or decayed teeth as well as composite bonding to improve the overall appearance of the teeth.
Composite filling material is also known as the white filling has increased in popularity in recent years due to advances in technology. We have a range of all different shades and shade match for each patient, so your tooth won’t look any different after you have the procedure done. Composite fillings are chemically bonded to the structure of the tooth for extra support, generally lasting 5-7 years before they will need to be replaced.
It is important that you keep up with your routine dental visits to check if there is decay present, because the dentist can catch it at an early stage. We can see a cavity before you may feel the effects. Removing decay at an early stage is vital for the tooth. If decay is left untreated it will get deeper and deeper in the tooth and will cause pain and which may lead to an abscess. This would mean that a more invasive or costly procedure is required to resolve the pain.
