DENTAL FILLINGS

At Oh My Smile, we always want you to be able to live life to the full – eating, talking and laughing without pain or hesitation. One of the best ways that we can help you to achieve this is with regular check-ups to ensure you maintain a healthy mouth, teeth and gums.

These appointments are important as they allow us to identify any potential problems early.  For example, being able to identify minor damage to teeth caused by decay before the tooth breaks or starts to cause the pain.  We can then use fillings to help repair the tooth and avoid the need for more complex treatment or extraction.

Once your clinician has fully cleaned the decayed area, you may chose to use the latest composite resin that colour-matches the tooth to fill the hole, helping to prevent additional issues in the future.

For patients who have received darker, amalgam fillings in the past, we can replace these with our discreet composite fillings, so you won’t have to worry about how your teeth might look when you’re talking or eating.

During your consultation, your clinician will take the time to fully examine your teeth and discuss the potential options in detail, giving you the chance to ask questions. If you decide to go ahead, a local anaesthetic will be carefully administered to ensure the filling treatment process is completely comfortable for you, and your dentist will take care to go at a pace that suits you.

You can speak to the team to find out more about our fillings, or book online.
