Fillings play a crucial role in repairing damaged, broken, chipped, or decayed teeth, ensuring their longevity. As the name implies, it involves filling in gaps that can emerge in your teeth, whether addressing large holes in broken teeth or fixing small chips in front teeth.
In modern dental practices, silver fillings have been replaced by more natural tooth-colored alternatives. At 121 Dental Practice, New Malden, we customize white fillings to match your teeth's color, achieving a natural result! These tooth fillings are composed of a material that adheres to the tooth surface and includes small particles, synthetic resins, and a setting ingredient called composite. Some tooth-colored filling materials may release fluoride, aiding in preventing and reducing the incidence of further tooth decay.
