If the tooth has suffered from decay or is broken, there are a variety of materials available to repair and restore the damaged area. This usually involves, either metallic or tooth-coloured fillings. Please ask your dentist as to which material may be most appropriate.
Benefits of Fillings
At Garden Square Dental we believe prevention is always better than cure and over the last 20 years many new preventative measures have helped to reduce dental disease and the need for patients to have fillings. However there are many cases where patients will require fillings for historical dental problems or in cases of cracked teeth or teeth damaged through teeth grinding or nail biting.
In these cases fillings are invaluable for patients, as they can be used to save damaged teeth that are otherwise in healthy condition, and often free patients from dental pain and sensitivity avoiding the need for extraction if left untreated. Cracked teeth can be repaired or filled using a variety of materials and techniques resulting in a seamless, natural appearance and a pain free mouth.
