Are tooth-coloured fillings better than silver metal fillings?

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.

Composite fillings bond directly to your tooth, which results in less healthy tooth structure removal. Amalgam (metal) fillings require additional preparation to provide anchors for the solid amalgam.

Composite fillings do not expand and contract as is common with metal and the temperature changes inside your mouth.

We are happy to discuss the type of filling that will work best for you.

To all our valued patients,

We have some news on the COVID-19 front. You may be aware of the recent changes to our restrictions that have been passed down this week regarding Dental Practices. As of Friday the 8th of May we will be operating at LEVEL 1 COVID-19 restrictions. All dental procedures are eligible at this level.
Additional screening and infection control procedures will still be in place including the use of hand sanitiser, pre-procedural mouth rinses and social distancing. We will explain this on an individual basis prior to your attendance at our surgery.
