Why do I need a Filling (Restoration)?
Not all teeth that need treatment hurt! However signs that you may need a filling (restoration) can include (but are not limited) sensitivity to pressure, hot, cold or sweet foods and drinks. When a filling is required, we will take out the decay and fill the hole with a filling material. The earlier a filling is detected, the easier, cheaper and less painful it will be.
The most popular filling material is the white (composite) material which is natural in appearance and very strong. We also have the black (amalgam) material which is also very strong and the best material to use in certain cases. However, if you have existing old black fillings that you dislike, we can replace them with the newer white material to look more natural.
