Tooth fillings are one of the most common ways of helping with the wear and tear of teeth over time, as well as the effects of tooth decay. There are a number of options, including composite and amalgam fillings. You can also have an inlay or an onlay, when neither a filling nor a crown is suitable. Our dentist will advise which particular solution will be best for you. The procedures are normally carried out using local anaesthetic and are generally not painful.
