Our diet and lifestyle has a huge impact on our teeth!
A filling is when material is placed into the tooth to replace the missing tooth structure. It can also be used for a small/moderate decay or fracture, to restore tooth function.
Pressure from chewing, grinding or clenching can cause existing, older fillings to wear, chip or crack. Regular dental check-ups can detect these problems before they cause pain and/or discomfort.
There are various filling options that are available to you and we can even replace your amalgam (metal) fillings with tooth-coloured fillings to enhance your smile.
*Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
