Tooth Fillings are a revitalising measure taken to restore decayed or damaged teeth. It is used to fill a cavity (a hole formed in the teeth) or a chipped tooth. Cavities grow larger over time, the sooner they are spotted and filled, the better it is. If not treated, the cavity or chipped tooth could lead to toothache, bad breath, infection, or even the fracturing or loss of your tooth. It’s a common procedure carried out ensuring the treatment is painless and safe.

Braces & Smiles at Leeds, Ripon and Bradford provide use the most effective, modern, tooth-coloured materials. Unlike the more traditional grey amalgam fillings, the tooth-coloured ones look natural. White fillings, or tooth coloured fillings, are the ones cosmetically acceptable than amalgam fillings. The default standard Braces & Smiles has set for its patients is white fillings on front teeth only (you could also have cosmetic white filling on a back tooth) and metal/amalgam fillings on the rest of the teeth. If you dream of being able to throw your head back and laugh, then virtually invisible white fillings are the way forward.

Why is tooth filling needed?

  • Tooth Decay: One of the most common causes of Tooth Filling where plaque is formed and the bacteria feed on the sugars and starches left on your teeth by food or drink. The acids present in plaque dissolve your enamel causing tiny holes which only grow larger. 
  • Acid erosion: The enamel is worn away by acids in the foods and drinks that are consumed.
  • Chipping: If you have a broken or a chipped tooth the inner parts of the tooth will be exposed and lead to erosion over time.
  • Abrasion and attrition: Brushing your tooth too aggressively or grinding your teeth can lead to the wearing out of the tooth.
