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.
