Fillings are one of the most common dental treatments there is. We use them to repair the cavities caused by decay, but they can also be used to repair chips, cracks and wear.
As you'd expect from the Wirral's leading dental team, we offer a comprehensive choice of materials. Long-lasting silver amalgam is perfect for filling rear teeth. For a more discreet option, our fillings in biocompatible resin match the shade of natural teeth. It makes them ideal for front-teeth repairs and replacing old silver fillings you'd much rather hide.
Biocompatible resin fillings match the colour of your natural teeth. We'll use these in the majority of cases, especially when flawless cosmetics are a must. And it's not just on the aesthetics front where resin fillings are a winner - they offer a host of advantages over their traditional amalgam counterparts:
Now less common than they once were, amalgam fillings still have their place. Although conspicuous, they typically last longer than resin or composite fillings, making them ideal for repairing the rear teeth responsible for chewing.
When teeth sustain too much damage to repair with a simple filling, we turn to inlays and onlays. They’re especially useful for restoring molars and premolars. Just like fillings, they come in a range of materials, with tooth-coloured porcelain and resin being the most common. Inlays and onlays are produced in a laboratory using a precision 3D scan of the cavity.
Experiencing pain or sensitivity when you put pressure on a tooth is one of the signs you may need a filling. Other telltale signs include dark spots and visible holes. If you've attended regular appointments at Buckle Advanced Dental Care, your dentist will spot problems as they occur.
As someone who's a bit of a wimp when it comes to needles and drills, I was pleased to discover that this is the first dental surgery I've been to where the treatment genuinely doesn't hurt - a testament to the skill and care provided by the staff. Treatment - fillings x 2, some reconstructive/aesthetic work and several hygiene appointments.
I have nothing but good things to say about the treatment I have recieved at Buckle Advanced Dental Care over the last year. Dr. Buckle and the rest of the team are caring, knowledgable and always take the time to ensure I understand whats happening with my teeth, which really puts me at ease. Thank you!
I would give 10 stars if I could.
