Amalgam Free Fillings
This restorative technique can be used to repair teeth that are worn or cracked or which have a cavity due to decay. It is very important to have any damaged teeth repaired as soon as possible as treatment removes any infected areas and will seal the tooth, preventing any further damage. Fillings restore strength and structure to a tooth so you will be able to bite and chew normally and without feeling any discomfort.
At DentalCareXtra we use the most up-to-date, tooth coloured composite resins that only require minimal tooth preparation, preserving the maximum amount of healthy tooth structure. For larger cavities, we may recommend porcelain crowns (inlays and onlays) as these are stronger and more able to withstand the pressure of chewing.
We are an amalgam-free dental clinic; we only use tooth coloured restorations to repair teeth. Nowadays there is no need to use amalgam as the latest tooth coloured composite resins can safely restore teeth. Larger areas of decay can be repaired using porcelain fillings which are custom-made to exactly fit the cavity.
If you require a filling, our dentist will fully explain all your treatment options. The process to place a filling is quick and painless, and the results should be durable and long-lasting.
