Fillings

We specialise in restoring your decayed or damaged teeth, as well as replacing older metal fillings with new tooth coloured ones.

There are a number of materials available to fill your teeth including:

  • Gold
  • Porcelain
  • Silver amalgam (mercury mixed with silver, tin, zinc, and copper)
  • Tooth-coloured plastic and glass materials (composite resin fillings)

The decision on which material to use will depend on the location of the filling, how much the tooth is decayed and the cost of the filling material. Your dentist will recommend the type of filling(s) that make the best choice for your teeth.
