Dental fillings from £125*
*Please note that the cost of fillings vary depending on the size and type of filling used and the time it takes to complete the treatment.
Our practice uses exclusively white (tooth coloured) fillings. There are several reasons for us to prefer this material:
White fillings are not harmful for your health as they do not raise concerns related to the perceived toxicity of mercury (silver) amalgam
White fillings are more natural looking as they can be matched to the colour of your teeth
Modern composite materials used in white fillings are as strong as those in silver amalgam
In certain cases white fillings involve less drilling of the tooth because the cavity does not have to be shaped as much as for a silver amalgam filling
If you want to change your old silver amalgam fillings discuss this with our dental team to get an advise on whether your old filling needs replacing.
