WHAT ARE AMALGAM FREE FILLINGS?
The resin bonds to the tooth, giving a natural look that protects the remaining structure of the tooth and allows you to return to eating with confidence.
Patients often do not realise they need treatment, which is one reason why regular dental examinations are so important. Typical signs, other than obvious damage, can include toothache or sensitivity to hot and cold food and drink.

“They explained all my options for me in detail, taking care to highlight different financially suitable options and were able to work around my busy schedule. The receptionists are also lovely.” Kai Chelliah. Dental crowns.
"I followed my wife on her visit to the dentist and was so warmly welcomed by Piotr and the other staff members that, after chatting with them about my concerns and them being so understanding, I decided to give it a try. Almost 5 months of my teeth are saved.” Michael Sparrow. Fillings, whitening and gum disease treatment.
Is amalgam free fillings treatment painful?
Because we give you a local anaesthetic, this should not be a painful treatment. Your tooth may feel sensitive at first but this should recede after a few days.
Will this treatment affect my eating?
We advise our patients to wait for 48 hours before eating or drinking dark foods or liquids. White fillings are more prone to staining just after treatment. Damaged teeth can make eating difficult so you should find it much more enjoyable after treatment.
What if I need more than one filling?
Patients will often have more than one filling placed.
How should I look after my filling?
Follow your usual oral health routine including brushing thoroughly twice a day. Avoiding putting unnecessary pressure on your filling by, for example, trying to open packaging with your teeth.
Is this a safe treatment?
This is a safe treatment when administered by a skilled, experienced dentist.
