At Smile Hub Dental Clinic, we only fix broken teeth with tooth-colored composite filling materials. A unique substance called composite is created by mixing resin, glass, and plastic. It flawlessly complements your smile because it is color-matched to your real teeth. Since composite is created on and attached to the tooth directly, unlike traditional silver amalgam fillings, no good teeth need to be extracted.
The same methods can be used to enhance the look of your front teeth, which will enhance your smile. We can utilise composite to fix problems and conceal flaws for any light damage and discoloration.
Why use white filler material?
- Strengthens the tooth's weakened structure.
- They are a cosmetic improvement that can boost confidence.
How do white fillings get put in?
The decaying portion of the tooth is first removed, frequently under topical anaesthesia.
A specific gel is used to prepare the area, creating the ideal surface for the composite to adhere to.
After cleaning and drying the tooth, a priming substance is added.
In order to make the repair conform to the shape of the tooth, layers of composite are applied to the tooth.
When we are satisfied with the shape, we polish the resin after the resin has dried under a bright light.
How long are fillings good for?
Your natural teeth are not resistant to bacteria and discoloration like your filling is.
Plaque and bacteria may be kept out of your mouth with regular cleaning. Your filling will last as long as possible thanks to this. Also, since composite isn't as durable as tooth enamel, you should refrain from biting directly onto the filling.
Thank you so much to @smilehubhubdentalclinic for sorting me out with a last minute cracked tooth! 💕🙏
Sunday morning dentist needed badly and they had one! Amazing service!! Thank you so much. Everyone's so kind.
Dr. Laura Fee and the entire team are amazing, so friendly throughout and really reassuring! I recently had a wisdom tooth extraction under sedation and didn’t feel a thing. Everything was explained very clearly and I felt totally comfortable - would recommend this dental practice to anyone, they really do go above and beyond!
Thank you Smile Hub for the caring experience that you gave to me yesterday. I was nervous but your team were amazing at calming me and doing the wisdom teeth extractions super quick with no sedation. I really appreciate it! I couldn’t recommend Smile Hub highly enough.
Brilliant service- dealt with me on a bank holiday at 10pm when I couldn't get an appointment anywhere else- staff are lovely & dentist amazing- highly recommend.
