How can we help?

If you have a cavity, we can restore your tooth seamlessly with one of our hand-crafted invisible fillings. We also offer replacement fillings for those after a more aesthetically pleasing alternative to their old metal fillings.

About invisible fillings

It’s important to us to preserve healthy smiles and we use invisible fillings to tackle cavities and signs of decay without detracting from the beauty of your smile. With invisible fillings (also known as white fillings), we can fill cavities and strengthen the tooth without causing you to feel self-conscious about the look of your smile.

Invisible fillings are made from a blend of dental composite and resins and offer a modern, safe and discreet alternative to metal fillings. We are a mercury-free practice and provide new and replacement filings to create healthy, strong and beautiful smiles.

Why would I need a filling?

We use fillings to restore teeth when cavities form in the outer layers of the tooth. Cavities are holes that develop when the hard enamel coating becomes worn or thin. Once the enamel surface is penetrated, the tooth is at risk of infection and placing a filling helps to reduce this risk, as well as making the tooth stronger. With invisible fillings, we can provide all the restorative benefits in addition to aesthetic advantages.

Is having a filling painful?

At Harley Street Dental Studio we understand that even the most basic dental procedure can be a scary prospect for anxious patients. We use the latest techniques to ensure every client feels comfortable and relaxed. Having a tooth filled is straightforward and we numb the tooth using local anaesthetic to expel discomfort. The first stage is to remove decayed tissue and clean the cavity thoroughly. The second stage is to place bonding agent and then the filling material inside the cavity. Your dentist will skilfully shape the composite to fill the cavity perfectly and harden it using a curing light. Filling a tooth usually takes less than an hour and you’ll be free to head home or get back to work immediately afterwards.
