White fillings

We’ve all had fillings at some point during our dentist visits. Here at Bristol Dental Practice, as a part of our cosmetic dental services, we can help you achieve the smile you have always dreamed of.
Don’t let old fillings ruin your confidence simply because they are visible and in contrast to the colour of your teeth.
White fillings, or “tooth coloured” fillings, can replace your amalgam fillings to improve the appearance of your smile.
We have many materials to choose from and offer a consultation and evaluation to determine the treatment plan that meets your needs.

Composite Fillings

Composite fillings are strong and are colour selected to match the shade of your existing teeth. Often used for smaller areas, the tooth is prepared and the filling material is bonded to your tooth with an adhesive before being set hard with a light.

Porcelain Inlays

Using modern technology, the design and preparation of your porcelain inlay can be completed in a few visits. The technology means that it will be a perfect fit.
Porcelain can be hard wearing and long lasting, and it can be coloured to match your own teeth.

Fillings

Fillings are used to repair a hole in a tooth caused by decay.  Silver amalgam fillings are available. Amalgam is made from a mixture of metals including mercury, silver, tin, copper and zinc. Your dentist will offer the most appropriate type of filling according to your clinical needs.

What Steps Are Involved in Filling a Tooth?

  1. Use of a local anaesthetic to numb the area around the tooth to be filled.
  2. An instrument will be used to remove the decayed area.
  3. Preparation of the space for the filling by cleaning the cavity of bacteria and decay.
  4. Your dentist will finish and polish the tooth.

How Expensive Are White Fillings?

White fillings are placed regularly. Your consultation and evaluation will provide the necessary details to indicate associated fees. Each case is unique as we consider, the age of the old filling, the size of the cavity, the types of materials that need to be used.  Prices range from £87 – £155.00
