Dental Fillings Brentwood, Essex
Dental decay arises from a high sugar consumption and lack of adequate brushing. The decay is a collection of bacteria which weakens the structure of your tooth. The tooth decay is removed with a drill and the area is filled up with a dental filling to build up the tooth. A filling can be placed in one visit and if required we will use local anaesthetic to numb the area, to ensure a comfortable and pain free procedure.
If the decay is left untreated, the tooth can become very sensitive in response to hot, cold and sweet food. The tooth itself may begin to ache and this may require more treatment than just a simple filling.
Early signs of decay can be picked up during a check-up or on the dental x-ray. If the decay is very minimal, it can be treated by applying a high concentration of fluoride varnish to the area, this can stop the progression of the decay.
At CJ Dental Studio we only use white fillings to restore teeth. These are tooth coloured and can be matched to the exact shade of your tooth.
We do not use silver amalgam fillings here, due to their mercury content and unpleasing colour. Our white composite fillings are a superior option cosmetically, as they are less visible and look very natural.
White fillings are made of composite resins and can last as long as silver fillings. The advantages of the white fillings are that they require minimal tooth cutting, therefore preserving a healthy tooth structure. We believe in minimally invasive dentistry and maintain a conservative approach in all our dental treatments.
We use the latest dental materials available on the market, which are of the highest quality to ensure the greatest longevity from your treatment. These materials are clinically proven to withstand the strong compressive chewing forces of your teeth.
