Years ago, it was the norm to fill teeth with mercury amalgam, but today, invisible fillings have become much more popular. At Harley Street Dental Studio, we use the latest, best quality materials to strengthen and protect the teeth with beautifully discreet fillings.
We offer replacement fillings for those who would like a more discreet alternative to mercury amalgam fillings, as well as new fillings made from dental composite or porcelain. The aim of the procedure is to fill the tooth without detracting from the beautiful natural aesthetic of the smile.
Fillings are traditionally used to treat teeth with cavities; cavities are holes, which develop in the surface of the tooth when the enamel becomes weakened as a result of injury or acid erosion. Cavities can increase in size and there is also a risk that bacteria can spread through the tooth; a filling helps to prevent this, as well as making the tooth stronger and enabling you to use it to chew and bite.
We are delighted to offer our clients hand-crafted, high grade fillings made from ceramics and dental composite. We use layers of dental composite, which is matched to the shade of your tooth, to create bespoke ‘art restorations’, which are completely invisible when you smile. Our highly skilled ceramic technicians can also craft porcelain inlays and onlays to restore the teeth seamlessly.
Many patients feel anxious when they require dental treatment and we adopt a very caring and compassionate approach. The procedure to fill a tooth is relatively simple and there’s nothing to be afraid of; the procedure is carried out under local anaesthetic and the tooth will be numbed completely to make sure that you don’t feel any pain at all. Typically, treatment is complete within the hour.
If you like the sound of our invisible fillings or you’ve been thinking about replacing a metal filling, call now to make an appointment and find out more.
