For Restore

Fillings

A filling is used when a tooth has developed a cavity – a small hole in the tough outer covering of your tooth, known as the enamel. Cavities are caused by tooth decay, which can progress to the pulp (soft tissue in the middle of the tooth) if the cavity is left untreated. During your treatment the decayed part of the tooth is removed and the filling will then seal the hole and prevent further decay. Unfortunately most of us will need a filling in our lifetime, whether it’s to replace failing metal fillings or treat new problems. At Square Mile Dental Centre we are proud to provide stunning tooth coloured fillings to restore the natural look and functioning of the tooth. 

Square Mile Dental Centre advocates good dental hygiene and educates our patients on the most beneficial dental health routine. It’s always best to try and prevent dental issues or pause the progression of tooth decay, rather than to allow problems to develop and undergo regular restorative treatments. Sanjay and Nik Sethi are highly regarded dental clinicians who provide an exceptional service. They regularly give lectures and provide teaching to other dentists on these procedures.

Frequently Asked Questions

Should I choose composite or metal fillings?

There are benefits to most types of fillings, which will be explained to you at your consultation. Our experienced dental team will carry out a thorough assessment / examination and recommend the right option for you.

What are the follow up or aftercare procedures?

It is likely that you will be able to eat and drink as normal, following the placement of your filling. However, there are some circumstances when you may be required to wait 24 hours – this will be explained both before and after your treatment. For most patients, it is possible to resume normal daily activities when leaving the practice. 

Will it hurt?

Your dentist will use local anaesthetic to numb your mouth during the procedure, so there should be little to no discomfort. Following the filling, there may be some slight sensitivity which usually subsides fairly quickly. 

How will I know I need a filling?

A patient will often be experiencing some slight concerns if a filling is needed. This can include: sensitivity to hot or cold foods / drinks, a dark spot on the surface of the tooth, pain or throbbing, a rough feel to a tooth and if the previous filling has fallen out or is damaged. A consultation with one of our experts will determine if a filling is needed.
