Durable and Natural-Looking Dental Fillings in Sevenoaks, Kent
At Lifetime Dental Studio in Sevenoaks, Kent, we offer a range of options for filling cavities and other defects in teeth, including composite or tooth-coloured fillings as a natural-looking alternative to traditional metal fillings.
Fillings are necessary when decay has caused cavities or holes in your teeth. It’s important to visit our clinic regularly for check-ups to ensure that any potential issues are identified and addressed in a timely manner.
Our skilled dentist in Sevenoaks can use white fillings to repair cracked or chipped teeth, restore strength and functionality to damaged teeth, close gaps, and reshape uneven or short teeth. This treatment helps to bring each tooth back to its natural appearance and enhance the overall appearance of your smile.
White fillings offer a quick and affordable way to correct a variety of dental situations such as:
- Cracks in your teeth
- Chips to your teeth
- Closing gaps between your teeth
- Reshaping of short and uneven teeth
- Tooth decay
- Replacement of metal or amalgam fillings
If left untreated, bacteria can get into the tooth and cause you painful infection and disease.
It often leads to tooth loss. It is so essential to deal with any dental problems quickly to prevent them from becoming more serious.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Why should I consider composite fillings?
Most people prefer tooth-coloured fillings because they look natural, and other people can’t see them when you laugh. Composite fillings are usually called “white fillings.” Still, we use a range of different shades to match the natural colour of your teeth.
Can I replace my existing amalgam fillings with composite fillings?
Yes, you can, though we generally recommend that fillings of any kind are replaced only when clinically necessary. For example, where decay occurs beneath or around an existing filling or the filling breaks. Sometimes when the existing fillings are extensive, composite fillings may not be an option; instead, you may require a porcelain inlay.
How long do composite fillings last?
96% of the composite fillings we place at this practice on front teeth last more than five years. We are highly confident of the quality of our composite fillings.
