From time to time, we need to do fillings. Fillings can be required for a few reasons. There can be decay or cavities which needs to be removed and replaced with composite material. There may be an old filling which needs replacement. A tooth may have broken which needs to be repaired or there may be some cosmetic changes a patient may desire.

These days, we generally use composite, or ‘white’ fillings. This material is matched to your current tooth shade so to the untrained eye, it’s not so obvious.
