Fillings are used to repair small holes in your teeth (cavities) which are usely caused by decay. Traditional amalgam fillings have a metallic appearance, which doesn’t look good cosmetically even when they are essential to prevent cavities progressing further. However there is a solution that allows tooth-coloured fillings, which are widely known as white fillings.
White fillings (compositite) are made out of powdered glass and ceramic added to a resin base. They are not as durable as metallic fillings however they still do they job and you can hardly notice them there.

Fillings are used to prevent holes in your teeth (cavities) decaying further and further until a tooth has to be removed. A filling will prevent futher decay and save you money as replacing a tooth can be expensive.
Fillings can usually be done on the same day in one dental visit, unlike other treatments such as crowns and veneers which could require multiple trips to the dentist. Most fillings are actually done during regular dental checkups, as the dentist would spot a cavity and want to treat it straight away before it gets any worse.
White fillings cost from £90 depending on the quantity and which teeth.
A dental veneer is a thin layer of porcelain or composite material made to fit over the front surface of a tooth, like a false fingernail fits over a nail. They are held in place by a very strong bond – similar to super glue.
In cases where the tooth is heavily broken down and needs strength and protection, dental crowns offer a solid alternative with similar cosmetic results and price.
