A&U Dental

Restoring a beautiful smile one tooth at a time.

In dentistry, fillings are among the most commonly performed procedures. Their purpose is to maintain the strength and function of teeth, so you can have a healthy smile for years to come.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I need a filling?

A dental filling is required when a tooth is damaged or decayed. When desired, you may also use them to enhance the appearance of teeth. You can discuss your treatment options in detail with your dentist during your in-depth consultation.

Can I have a white filling on the NHS?

Composite (white filling) restorations are most often suitable for treating teeth. Thanks to material advancements, white fillings can now be used to restore teeth in all parts of the mouth and provide a robust, long-lasting, and cosmetic solution.

Only front teeth can be treated using white filling material on the NHS; However, if you wish to have premolars or molars filled with composite material, we will be more than happy to develop a bespoke private treatment plan for you to have this done.

Can all teeth be filled?

Your dentist can restore teeth in many ways. Choosing the correct treatment for you will depend upon the amount of decay present and the shape and size of the cavity to fill.

There are other options to consider if dental fillings aren’t appropriate, including inlays, onlays, and crowns.

We will continually inform you of all your options and their benefits, along with treatment recommendations and reasoning.
