Ceramic Fillings


If you've had fillings on your back teeth, chances are that you'll have at least on grey coloured amalgam filling. Many patients ask me for a more aesthetic alternative, and of course we are happy to oblige.

For small to medium holes, we can use plastic resin fillings and if placed with care they can last for many years with little trouble.

For bigger fillings in more heavily damaged teeth, we need something stronger, and this is where ceramic fillings come in. We're not talking wash basin porcelain either - think of Ferrari break discs and industrial insulators....very high tech, very strong....

Made in partnership with an experienced dental technician on imprints of the prepared tooth, they look like a tooth, feel like tooth, and last for years. Biggest advantage - minimal drilling!

Here's a before and after pic of two we did at York Place recently.......

Have you got old tired grey fillings that show when you laugh?
