Fillings & Restorative Dentistry

Our natural teeth are the perfect design, so we always aim to restore them rather than remove them. Restorative dentistry aims to repair damaged teeth to their original function and maintain them as long as possible.

Why do we need fillings? 

Teeth are under a lot of stress in the mouth. They can experience problems like acid erosion and decay from the food and drinks that we consume. Teeth can also become cracked or chipped as a result of grinding and clenching. Dental fillings are used to repair or replace any missing or weakened tooth structure. Our experienced dentists use the latest techniques and materials to ensure that your filling is comfortable, long-lasting and blends seamlessly with your natural smile. 


Can I get fillings that match my teeth? 

Modern technology allows us to use white filling materials that blend with your natural tooth colour. White fillings are composite resin, which is a combination of nano glass and resin. These have similar characteristics to natural teeth and can bond to the natural tooth structure. Advancements in white fillings have allowed for more conservative methods of restoring your tooth and have increased their longevity substantially.



In cases where the tooth is severely broken down or at risk of further cracking, your dentist may recommend a crown. Crowns are porcelain covers that fit over your tooth. These can greatly increase the longevity and strength of your tooth and reduce the chance of future pain or fractures. Read more about crowns here.
