Decay Treatment

The bread and butter of modern day dentistry. When plaque-based bacteria eat the sugars you feed them, they produce acidic wastes which break down the mineral structures in your teeth causing decay which lead to cavities. A "filling" involves the removal of the rotting part of the tooth and leaving a clean surface onto which we can place a restorative material.

White (composite) and silver (amalgam) fillings are most commonly used although the latter is falling out of fashion and use rapidly more due to the advances in white filling materials than the shortcomings of the silver ones. In some instances where maximum strength is necessary, a porcelain or even gold filling can be custom-made for your tooth.

Advanced Dental Materials provide aesthetic lasting outcomes. Above, are some of the brands who through their high quality products allow us to provide the best in dental care.
