Repair damaged teeth with dental fillings
Fillings are used to extend the life of damaged teeth from different types of sources such as cavities,small cracks or even chipped teeth. At Carlton Dental, we haven chosen to step away from amalgam, or ‘silver’, fillings giving our patients a more aesthetic and natural look to their teeth. Fillings can also be used to enhance the look of your smile!
Tooth coloured filling material is bonded to natural teeth structure allowing it to be very versatile in saving teeth in many types of situations. However, fillings also carry their limits! If the cavity or defect on the tooth gets too large, the material isn’t strong enough to hold the tooth together. In cases like these we often resort to our ceramic restorations.
