Fillings

When your tooth shows signs of decay, we can help to stop it before any further damage is caused. Dental fillings are there to help restore your tooth back to its normal shape and prevent any further decay.

Magpies Private Dentists Horam 20

Spot decay before it gets serious

When you visit for a check up, your dentist will use a small inspection mirror to assess the surface of your teeth, looking for signs of decay or little cracks and fissures. They will let you know as soon as they see anything that might require treatment, and a small filling is a lasting preventative solution that far outweighs a root canal treatment, which can be the result of extensive decay. By closing up the gap, your dentist is preventing bacteria from getting in and preserving your tooth in the least invasive way.

The process is straightforward and often only requires one or two appointments at your local Horam practice. Once your dentist has assessed the area that requires treatment, they will clear out any decay before filling the clean cavity with a material of your choice.

What kind of fillings are available?

Indirect:  

  • Porcelain fillings - referred to as inlays or onlays, and are custom-made and then fitted to your teeth. They boast a similar durability to that of gold fillings, but look more more natural.

Direct:

  • Composite resin fillings - composite resin is a kind of plastic that will match your natural tooth colour, making a filling less visible. The resin mixture can be poured straight into the cavity, making it a relatively quick treatment, if a little less durable than gold or silver.
