Restoring damaged teeth

Teeth are constantly being subjected to harmful forces. This can result in damage to the structures of the tooth which then need to be repaired. Fortunately modern dentistry has progressed to the state whereby for the most part these repairs are easy to achieve and will give a long lasting aesthetic result.


A filling replaces the part of a tooth that has been lost because of decay, through accidental damage, or through wear and tear. Fillings can either be metal based – silver (amalgam) fillings, or tooth coloured composite plastic or white fillings.

When there is more extensive damage to a tooth, crowns, or inlays and onlays may be used instead of a filling.
