Dental Fillings in Bromley
Occasionally your dentist may tell you that you need a filling, and this is most often caused by dental decay. Dental decay arises from drinking sugary foods and carbonated drinks alongside ineffective toothbrushing and more.
Why might I need a Filling?
When a tooth is decayed it becomes weaker and more likely to break or fracture. If the decay is extensive, it may also extend towards the nerve of the tooth causing you pain. If left untreated, your tooth may not be saveable and may even need taking out.

Natural tooth coloured fillings are a very popular choice because of the ability of the white composite material to match the shade, translucency and even texture of your own teeth. White composite fillings provide a much better aesthetic result than the old amalgam (silver) fillings. Not only are they cosmetically more appealing but they are bonded into the tooth, helping the tooth’s overall structure.
