When teeth become decayed or damaged, we can help repair and restore them with a filling.

What are fillings?

As one of the most commonly placed dental restoration treatments, the chances are you’ve probably already heard of fillings! We use these to help repair teeth that have become damaged in some way by filling in a gap – sometimes also referred to as a cavity or caries – in the tooth. This then restores the tooth to full function and helps stop bacteria from further entering the tooth via the hole, minimising and even preventing the chances of decay in the future.

Why do I need a filling?

Fillings are fairly common and can come about for a variety of reasons. In all cases, however, the tooth has become damaged and a hole or cavity has been created as a result of this. The causes for this damage can be tooth decay, injury, or simple wear and tear.

If you think you might be in need of a filling or are interested in any of our treatments at The Corner House Dental Practice, please contact us or call us on 01403 251 015.


How will I know if I need a filling?

We’ll be able to diagnose the need for a filling during your regular check-ups with us here at The Corner House Dental.

Some patients may not even know they’re in need of a filling until an examination occurs, while others may experience the following symptoms:

  • Increased sensitivity.
  • Pain when chewing or biting down.

What is the treatment like?

Fillings can usually be placed during just one appointment and are normally relatively quick. You’ll be placed under local anaesthetic while we carry out the treatment, during which we’ll first remove any decay before thoroughly cleaning the tooth in question. We’ll then place the filling, shaping it to fit in with the rest of the natural tooth.
