Our diet and lifestyle has a huge impact on our teeth. A filling is when material is placed into the tooth in order to replace missing tooth structure and they are also used when teeth have small to moderate decay or fractures to restore tooth function. If you have already had a filling, pressure from chewing, grinding or clenching can cause existing fillings to wear, chip or crack. You may not know that your old fillings are wearing down but regular dental checks can help identify issues early. There are various different filling options that may be available to you and we can even replace your amalgam (metal) fillings with tooth coloured fillings to enhance your appearance.
*Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
