“We’ve seen time and time again when patients have ignored cavities and holes in their teeth for prolonged periods, which usually always end up in emergency appointments due to severe tooth pain, decay and infection. Unfortunately, patients that ignore problems with their teeth require more extensive and costly treatments like root canals, dental crowns and in the worst cases; extraction.”
We know it’s important for phobic patients to understand clearly what their treatment will look like on the day.
We use a durable and cosmetically pleasing amalgam-free tooth-coloured filling material, which combines powdered glass and acrylic resin to provide a seamless finish.
The need for a filling comes from tooth decay. This is caused by a chemical reaction between the sugars we consume and the plaque bacteria in our mouths.
This reaction creates erosive acids that soften our tooth enamel, leading to the formation of cavities.
If you regularly undergo fillings, talk to one of the amazing general dentists about a preventative care plan, which can help strengthen your oral health and help you avoid extensive restorative procedures in future.
You’ll need a crown if:
Dental crowns cost from £740.
