Fillings are used to repair a tooth that has been damaged by decay, or to improve the shape and appearance of a tooth that has changed shape due to erosive factors (abfraction along the gum line, chipping, poor-quality teeth).
Today, when aesthetics are an important consideration, fillings also need to meet high cosmetic standards and ensure that the teeth look natural.
Composite fillings are used to restore function, integrity and shape to the teeth after damage caused by decay, breakage or other damage. White fillings bond directly to the surface of the tooth, protecting it from further damage. These fillings have been perfected to the point where they have almost entirely eliminated the use of amalgam (‘silver’) fillings.
At Smile Time we use the latest materials for dental fillings, which meet all the necessary criteria both in terms of their functionality and their cosmetic appearance. The procedure is carried out in a single visit, and local anaesthetic is used, ensuring it is entirely painless.
