The need for fillings can be avoided with the correct advice, regular check ups and x-rays taken from time to time to monitor hard to see areas. At Forest Road Dental Practice the team have a focus on preventative dentistry and advise patients on healthy snacking, tips on improving their own oral hygiene and fluoride (medicine used in mouthwashes and toothpastes to strengthen teeth against tooth decay).
Whenever possible, we use the finest composite (tooth coloured) materials to restore teeth to their natural appearance and function – this can be to carry out new fillings, or if you’re interested in replacing old silver fillings with the latest tooth coloured alternatives for a healthier looking smile, speak to one of our dentists to see how we may be able to help.
Frequently Asked Questions
White fillings are preferable as they are deemed to be less destructive to the natural tooth than silver/metallic ones. The colour of the white fillings can be tailored to match as closely as possible the natural colour of your own teeth so that they are virtually invisible to the eye.
The dentist will in most cases numb you up with fast acting anaesthetic and check you are pain free during the procedure.
