When your tooth shows signs of decay, your City Bridge Dental & Implant Clinic dentist can help to stop it before any further damage is caused. Fillings are applied to small and developing cavities to restore your tooth back to its normal shape and prevent any further decay.

      Spot decay before it gets serious

      When you visit for a check up, your dentist will use a small inspection mirror to assess the surface of your teeth, looking for signs of decay or little cracks and fissures. They will let you know as soon as they see anything that might require treatment, and a small filling is a lasting preventative solution that far outweighs a root canal treatment, which can be the result of extensive decay. By closing up the gap, your dentist is preventing bacteria from getting in and preserving your tooth in the least invasive way.

      The process is straightforward and often only requires one or two appointments at your local Winchester practice. Once your dentist has assessed the area that requires treatment, they will clear out any decay before filling the clean cavity with a material of your choice.

      What kind of fillings are available?

      There are a number of different materials that can be used to fill a hole in your tooth. Indirect fillings are those that require a couple of visits to City Bridge Dental & Implant Clinic as the tooth is treated with a tailormade filling that has to be crafted to your needs in a dental laboratory before fitting.

      Replace old metal fillings

      Transform your teeth with natural tooth coloured fillings and crowns. It is amazing the difference that can be made by simply replacing old metal fillings with natural tooth coloured restorations.

      Natural tooth coloured fillings are a popular choice because the composite material can match the shade, translucency and even the texture of your own teeth providing a much better result than old amalgam/silver fillings which can be unsightly when you smile. Here at City Bridge Dental & Implant Clinic we are often asked to replace old metal fillings with tooth-coloured composites.

      Modern ceramic crowns have exceptional aesthetics and strength.  They blend perfectly with your natural teeth, and unlike traditional crowns, they do not leave a black line at the gum level.  Our cosmetic dentists are highly trained in aesthetic techniques and use sound biological principles and well established evidence based techniques for long lasting beautiful results.
