Having trouble with your teeth?
Painful toothaches, sensitivity to hot or cold foods in a certain area of your mouth or a visible cavity are all signs you need a filling. Your dentist may also notice a small cavity appearing before it starts to cause you noticeable issues. In either case, quick action is always the best solution to prevent further decay and protect your smile. Our practice in Hartley Wintney welcomes both Denplan and private patients. If you have any concerns about your teeth, get in touch with our reception team today.
Our filling types
Tooth fillings work by filling the cavity with material to restore the tooth’s shape and prevent more decay from happening. All filling types can last for many years if you follow a thorough dental care routine. The filling varieties we offer at Quaintways Cottage Dental Surgery include:
A cost-effective and long-lasting material, amalgam is the traditional material used in tooth fillings.
Made from glass and resin, composite fillings are tooth-colours to ensure they blend in naturally.
Gold fillings last a long time and are very stain-resistant, making them a good option.
Keeping your fillings in great condition
Once your new filling has been put in, it’s important to keep up with dental hygiene as best as possible to prevent any further issues. We recommend:
✔ Brushing and using floss or interdental brushes twice a day
✔ Be mindful of your fillings when eating hard objects, it may be best to avoid certain foods
✔ Visit us for regular check-ups
✔ Contact if you notice a filling has become loose or fallen out
