Fillings Greenwich & Battersea, london

Dental fillings are artificial materials that are used to rebuild teeth that have fractured or been damaged by decay.
Fillings restore a tooth’s natural function and structure.

What materials do you use to make a filling?

A variety of materials are available, depending on the location and function of the tooth being filled and your personal preference. Amalgam is an inexpensive and durable mixture of silver, tin, copper, zinc, and mercury. Amalgam is approved by the World Health Organisation for its durability and safety and can be appropriate in certain clinical situations.

Composite resin is a popular filling material. Patients find composite resin more aesthetically pleasing than amalgam as the colour of resin closely resembles that of a natural tooth. Amalgam is silver in colour and more noticeable when you smile.

Frequently Asked Questions

Depending on the material chosen and the function of the tooth, a filling can usually last about 5-7 years.

For a few days following the filling, you may experience a sensation while chewing hot or cold food. Any discomfort can usually be alleviated with an over the counter pain reliever.

Composite fillings are bonded to the tooth and provide support and strength. Amalgam fillings are not glued to the tooth so involve more cutting of healthy tooth to provide retentive features so they don’t fall out.

We as a practice have made the decision to only use white composite fillings, we do not have or use metal amalgam fillings on any of our patients. Besides a white composite filling is environmentally friendly and more aesthetically pleasing!

White fillings preserve more of your natural tooth. White fillings bond directly to the tooth without the need to remove as much of the tooth’s surface.

White fillings are an excellent option for patients who have metal allergies or who may not like the idea of mercury, no matter how minimal the quantity, used as part of the filling material.

People with sensitive teeth find white fillings decrease tooth sensitivity compared to using amalgam because metal reacts to hot and cold by expanding and contracting. The plastic used in white fillings does not react to temperature changes.

You can have your amalgam fillings replaced with white fillings.
