27 Cambridge Street, Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire HP20 1RP

Fillings restore minor damage caused by tooth decay, small fractures, or chipping.

The damaged tooth needs function and form restored to maintain a proper biting surface.

What materials are used to make a filling?

Many dentists use amalgam, which is a mixture of copper, silver, zinc, tin, and mercury. Amalgam is very inexpensive, robust, and lasts a long time. Dentists also use composite resins as filling material. We offer white fillings, made of composite material that closely matches the colour of your natural tooth. Unlike amalgam fillings, which are silver in colour, casual observers usually won’t notice a white filling.

Does getting a filling hurt?

We do our best to keep you as comfortable as possible, using a local anaesthetic to numb the area before applying the filling.

What does your dentist do to my tooth before filling it?

After numbing the area, the dentist will remove any infected material (decay) from the tooth and shape the cavity for the filling. Your dentist will then fill the cavity with the filling material and then smooths and polishes the area. Fillings usually only take one appointment.

When do I replace my filling?

A filling can last at least 5-7 years, depending on the material used and how well it is maintained.
