Fillings are one of the most basic methods of restoring damaged teeth and making them strong again.
They are usually needed when your tooth has been damaged by decay - we remove the decayed material, and replace it with either tooth coloured material or grey/silver amalgam.
Tooth-coloured fillings are not always available on the NHS, especially on less visible back teeth, but we can provide them on a private basis if requested.
