Dental Fillings

A filling replaces part of a tooth that has been lost through wear, decay or damage. Fillings can be amalgam (silver coloured) or composite (tooth coloured).

What are the benefits?
•  A filling repairs and replaces the damaged part of the tooth allowing you to
    keep the tooth so you can continue to chew.
•  Removes decay so that it does not spread causing further damage to the tooth
    which can cause pain and infection.
•  A filling can treat and prevent toothache.
