Restoring decayed teeth

Tooth decay can lead to the development of holes and fractures in teeth, creating sensitivity and pain. Our cosmetic tooth filling treatments remove remnants of decay and provide a stable, natural-looking replacement to create a complete smile.

What are cosmetic fillings?

Cosmetic fillings are a type of dental restoration used to seal and fill small holes in teeth that typically emerge as a result of tooth decay. These holes are known as cavities, but fillings can also be used to treat minor tooth fractures and damage. A dental filling can be made from a variety of materials, but modern cosmetic fillings use tooth-coloured porcelain or composite resin for a durable and seamless solution. We recommend replacing old metal fillings with cosmetic upgrades for a more sound and lasting solution.

When do you need a filling?

Tooth fillings are best suited to treating minor holes or cracks in teeth, but some common signs that you may need a filling include throbbing and sharp tooth pains, sensitivity to pressure or hot and cold temperatures, as well as visible holes. Another indicator is when one or more teeth become sharp or have jagged edges, which suggests that the tooth is decaying. 

Unfortunately, you may still experience tooth decay and require a tooth filling even if you don’t experience any of these symptoms. The only way to be certain that a filling is needed is to have your teeth checked by a dentist. Regular check ups can help prevent cavities from forming or identify them in the early stages before decay becomes too severe.

Benefits of cosmetic fillings

Restoring the health and stability of a decayed tooth with a cosmetic filling provides a number of important and lasting benefits, including:

  • Aesthetics: Cosmetic fillings are made to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, ensuring a restoration that is often impossible to notice. The natural appearance is a significant improvement on older metal fillings.
  • Preservation: Fillings provide important support to the remaining tooth structure, ensuring that more natural enamel and tissue is retained.
  • Resilience: Modern filling materials combine their aesthetics with strength and durability, and are comfortably able to withstand daily biting and chewing forces.


Restoring a tooth with a filling can help reduce pain and discomfort in your daily life, helping you to live more comfortably.
