Fillings

When a tooth is damaged by decay, sometimes a cavity or hole forms in the dental enamel and requires a filling. It is important to seal the cavity with a filling to prevent any further damage.

At Northway Dental Practice, we use traditional metallic or gold fillings as well as white fillings. White ceramic or composite fillings are often the most popular choice as they ensure your smile remains unaffected by this necessary treatment and blends in with your natural teeth.

Our team will provide advice to help you avoid decay and our hygienists and dentists will thoroughly clean and polish your teeth. Unfortunately, sometimes fillings are still necessary to strengthen a weakened tooth.

How to avoid a filling

By maintaining a thorough home care routine and healthy diet, you can reduce your chances of requiring a filling. We advise brushing at least twice a day to remove bacteria and plaque from the tooth’s surface.

Additionally, by making six-monthly hygienist appointments, your teeth will be deep cleaned to remove bacteria and plaque as well as tartar.
