A wide range of filling materials are now used to restore teeth or replace old unsightly metal fillings.
Metal amalgam has been used as the main filling material for nearly 100 years, but it never bonds to the tooth and cracks can appear.
At Special Care Dental we now provide all our patients with modern tooth-coloured alternatives.
Tooth-coloured composite fillings are ideal for restoration and bond to the tooth. If the cavity is very large, or the tooth has been weakened, we may recommend other solutions such as porcelain inlays, or a porcelain crown that covers the entire tooth.
The result is a far more natural appearance, and a tooth that will last for many years.
This non-invasive treatment helps remove years of discolouration caused by age, smoking, eating and drinking. The result is a beautiful smile to help your self-esteem and build confidence.Learn more
The veneers are custom-made thin layers of porcelain that can be permanently bonded to the front surface of your teeth.Learn more
Sometimes gum tissue covers a portion of the front surface of the tooth and leads to a ‘gummy’ smile.Learn more
