The ability to laugh and smile with complete confidence is one of the great joys in life, and one we perhaps take for granted. Those with a mouthful of metal fillings, however, may feel unable to do this in a care-free way. If you’re in need of a filling, but are concerned that it’s shiny metal appearance will draw unwanted attention, Crescent Lodge Dental Practice’s discreet white fillings may be the perfect alternative. Our experienced dentists can even colour-match them to your surrounding teeth, ensuring that the only person who will know you have a filling is you. Tooth coloured fillings are also highly durable and will resist the forces of biting and chewing for a long period of time.Book Appointment
If you already have metal fillings, you may wish to replace them with white ones. While we are happy to do so, this may not always be the best solution. This is something we can assess through an initial consultation. Our ethical dentists treat every individual on a case-by-case basis, and will always recommend the ideal treatment for you.
“When my consultation revealed that I needed two fillings I was given good practical advice as to how these could be done for me as comfortably as possible. In the end the treatment was easy, painless and over before I knew it.”

Fillings are usually required when your tooth has been damaged, either through decay, trauma, or excessive wear and tear.
This will depend on how you care for them. Good oral healthcare and regular checkups will help them stay stronger for longer. Providing you follow these guidelines, they can last for many years.
It’s usually advisable that you wait until your old fillings need replacing before you replace them. However, this will vary between individuals, and is something we can assess at an initial consultation, as we can often replace them for cosmetic reasons.
Previously, while white fillings were more appealing from a cosmetic perspective, ultimately, amalgam fillings were stronger. However, with advances in technology, the materials used in white composite fillings are now more comparable to their metal counterparts in terms of durability.
