Fillings are used to repair small to medium sized cavities (or holes) in the teeth caused by dental decay. This space can be filled with an alloy metal* or composite (white) filling. The type of filling will be discussed between you and your clinician as the size of the cavity and other factors will need to be considered in selecting the right option for you. Depending on the size of the cavity, this might involve numbing the area with a local anaesthetic to ensure that you are comfortable throughout the procedure.

If you would like to know more or are worried about getting a filling, please speak to a member of our friendly dental team.

Please be aware that we will require a deposit when you book an appointment - this will be deducted from your bill for the relevant treatment at your next visit. We understand that things sometimes come up, so your deposit will not be affected if you alter your appointment with over 24 hours' notice. We will always be as flexible as possible with you but reserve the right to retain your deposit in case of late cancellations (any cancellation with less than 24 hours’ notice) or late arrivals which result in us not being able to see you (for example, arriving c:15 minutes late for a 20-30 minute appointment). It is very difficult for us to offer care to other patients if little notice is given. Loss of opportunity to treat patients in need increases the waiting times for appointments and the cost to run the surgery. We will always try to be sensitive to personal circumstances in the event of late cancellations.
