Fillings

Fillings provide protection and strength to teeth that have been damaged by decay. They are suitable for patients of all ages and most adults will receive at least one filling in their lifetime.

Fillings can be made from a variety of materials including precious metal, ceramic or porcelain. Metallic fillings are strong and resilient and are ideal for teeth at the back of the mouth, whilst white fillings blend in discretely with the natural teeth and can be placed towards the front of the mouth to preserve the appearance of your smile.

A filling is applied directly to the affected tooth, sealing the hole or cavity that has formed and preserving the health of the tooth.

Why do you need a filling?

Poor oral hygiene and a lack of adequate brushing and flossing can lead to cavities or small holes forming in the dental enamel. This is because plaque can sit on the teeth and the acid within plaque eats away at dental enamel causing tiny holes that need to be filled.

If these holes or cavities deepen, your teeth and gums are made vulnerable to infection, further damage to the affected tooth and a general deterioration in your oral health. Avoid fillings by practising a daily and through home care routine and by attending St. Michael’s Dental Care for hygiene appointments.

White fillings provide protection and strength to teeth that have been damaged by decay. They blend into your natural teeth and are invisible to others.

Made from ceramic or porcelain, white fillings give you the treatment you need without affecting your dental appearance or function.

They are applied directly to the affected tooth, sealing the hole or cavity that has formed due to the acid within plaque and restores your teeth back to health.
