Fillings

Smiling has never felt so good

Fillings are most often used to repair the damage caused by cavity or tooth decay. When you have a filling at the Dental Health Centre, your dentist will carefully remove all of the decay and replace it with a white filling or silver amalgam filling, depending upon your choice. The filling will be moulded into shape to ensure that it functions like a normal tooth.


White fillings

White fillings are the most popular choice of filling as they provide a very natural looking finish. Silver amalgam fillings, on the other hand, are perfectly functional but do have several drawbacks compared to white fillings. The most obvious is that silver amalgam is quite dark and can give the appearance of stained teeth. It also expands during the setting process and could fracture teeth. For these reasons, many patients also come to us to have their previous silver amalgam fillings replaced with white tooth-coloured fillings.


The best way to prevent dental decay and cavities is to brush and floss your teeth everyday and visit your dentist at the Dental Health Centre in Witham regularly. This is because tooth decay which is not treated quickly could lead to further damage which might require root canal treatment or even extraction.
