Fillings

Fillings are a safe and inexpensive way of treating dental cavities

A filling is a fast, simple and convenient way of repairing missing tooth substance or structure, and they are a common, safe and inexpensive way of treating dental cavities.

If you need a filling, in general you have two options.

Composite (White Coloured) Fillings

Natural looking, composite or 'white' fillings bond well to the tooth, so the filling is well sealed. They are also repairable in the event of a chip.

Amalgam (Silver) Fillings

Long lasting amalgam fillings are often used today for larger cavities, or to fill cavities at the back of your mouth, where they add strength to the tooth's structure.

If you have a cavity or you think you may need a filling, it's important for your oral care to make an appointment to see us as soon as possible. Your DB dentist will explain the options available to you, what the procedure will involve and how much it will cost.
