When tooth decay has eroded the enamel leaving a cavity, then a filling can be the best answer.
Nowadays, many prefer to go for white fillings and avoid silver amalgam fillings that might show when you smile or laugh.

White fillings used to be less long lasting than silver amalgam fillings but nowadays they are almost as good as silver amalgam. How long the white filling lasts will depend on where it is in your mouth and how heavily your teeth come together when you bite. We can advise you according to where in your mouth the filling is required and the state of the tooth.
We charge from £80 (from £63 if you are one of our Dental Plan members). The cost varies depending on the size and type of white filling used and the time it takes to complete the treatment. We will give you a clear price prior to you deciding on treatment.
It is usually best to change fillings only when they need replacing. If your filling does need replacing, you can ask to have a white filling instead and your dentist will advise you accordingly.
