Composite filling cost London

A composite filling is usually used to repair a tooth that has been affected by decay or damage, as well as for cosmetic improvements by changing the colour or reshaping disfigured teeth.

Since composite fillings are tooth coloured, they can be closely matched to the natural shade of your smile, and so are more aesthetically suited for use in front teeth and the more visible areas.

As with most dental restorations, composite fillings are not permanent and may someday have to be replaced, but they are very durable, and will last many years, giving you a long lasting, beautiful smile. Good oral hygiene practices, eating habits, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new fillings.

Reasons for composite fillings:

  • Chipped teeth.
  • Closing space between two teeth.
  • Cracked or broken teeth.
  • Decayed teeth.
  • Worn teeth.

How are composite fillings placed?

Composite fillings are usually placed in one appointment. While the tooth is numb, your dentist will remove decay as necessary, the space will then be thoroughly cleaned and carefully prepared before the new filling is placed. The composite filling will then be precisely placed, shaped, and polished, restoring your tooth to its original shape and function.
