Dental Fillings in Langley, Slough

Dental Fillings

White dental fillings are also known as composite fillings and are a mixture of plastic and glass materials used to restore decayed teeth. The new generation composites are a wonderful way to fix holes in teeth and our patients typically can’t tell the difference between the filling and the natural tooth.

In some cases, there can be sensitivity after a composite filling has been placed, but in our experience, this soon settles. White composite fillings are now the most common way to restore teeth although amalgam is still used in certain cases where composite is not suitable. Composites are also used to change the colour of the teeth and allow us to reshape disfigured teeth and are quite simply our best friend.

Choosing the right filling for you

A filling is a common procedure carried out by dentists to fill a dental cavity, or hole, in the tooth.

Cavities can be caused by various reasons, but are usually down to:

  • Damaged teeth through grinding your upper and lower teeth together, eroding the tops of your teeth.
  • Chipped teeth from an impact, accident or biting an extremely hard object with force.
  • Acidic erosion/decay over time from certain foods and insufficient cleaning.

When it comes to the filling itself, there are several different materials that can be used, each with their own benefits. Your dentist will be able to discuss your options and help you decide which type of filling is best for you.
