White Fillings Plumstead
Fillings are a preventative treatment option to stop decay in its early stages. It can also be very useful in repairing cracked teeth and for replacing existing amalgam (metal) fillings.
Decay, also known as caries or cavity can lead to symptoms such as sensitivity, pain to hot, cold, and when biting. If left untreated, the cavity becomes larger and food debris continues to build up in this area leading to bad breath, persistent toothache and swollen gums.
A thorough dental examination and x-rays enable us to spot these areas of decay. A filling appointment is arranged where anesthetics are used to numb the tooth and the cavity is cleaned thoroughly. White filling material is then used to restore the cavity without any pain or discomfort.
White fillings are made up of a composite resin material that is strong, durable, and natural-looking. Resulting in a restoration that looks and feels like a natural tooth.
