Composite Fillings in London

Composite fillings are a popular dental restoration option as they are durable, natural-looking, and can be matched to the colour of your teeth, resulting in a seamless smile.

Achieve a beautiful, healthy-looking smile that feels just as good as it looks.

At our office, the most frequently performed procedure is dental fillings, which effectively repair and restore damaged teeth while preventing further decay or infection, and we prefer to use colour-matching composite resin fillings that bond more effectively with your tooth compared to traditional amalgam (metal) fillings, resulting in less drilling and the ability to fill smaller spaces.

 

Why Are Fillings So Important?

While getting a filling may feel like a chore that you’re inclined to put off, even if your tooth doesn’t currently hurt, we highly advise you to have your cavities filled as soon as possible, and here’s why:

  • Keep cavities from progressing and becoming larger.
  • Avoid painful infections or abscesses.
  • Restore strength and durability to weakened teeth with fillings.
  • Save money in the long run by preventing more serious dental issues.
  • Decrease sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures.
  • Maintain the appearance of your natural smile for as long as possible.

How Is A Cavity Filled?

Gentle Freezing

We will take time to ensure your comfort by carefully numbing your gums, which may be a source of anxiety for some individuals, but rest assured that this step will effectively numb your teeth and surrounding area, resulting in minimal discomfort during the procedure.

Filling the Tooth

Then we gently clean and prepare your affected tooth, and apply an adhesive gel followed by a composite resin (white filling material) that will be shaped and moulded to perfectly match your tooth’s contours and bite.

Curing the Composite

Following the application of the composite resin material to fill or bond your tooth, it is promptly hardened using a specialized LED light, and upon completion, your tooth will be meticulously examined by the dentist, who will make any necessary final touches before giving it a final polish.

How Much Does a Filling Cost?

Due to the effectiveness of fillings in preventing and addressing dental issues, they are a standard and highly covered procedure by most insurance companies, with typical plans covering costs ranging from $0 to $100+, while uninsured patients can expect to pay between $120 to $300 or more, particularly if multiple fillings are required at once.

To determine the precise cost of your treatment, we take into consideration several essential factors, including your current oral health, the number and location of fillings needed, the requirement for any new x-rays, the amount of time needed to fulfill your dental needs, and the equipment and supplies necessary to provide optimal care.

Filling cavities promptly is very important to us, as fillings are so effective at preventing more invasive treatments, preventing serious dental pain and keeping you as happy and healthy as possible.

I went to Wellington Dentistry looking for a second opinion because due to a bad bite my tooth came loose from the containment (brackets) and was a little loose. At the other dental center they told me that my tooth was fractured and the only solution was to extract it although the x-ray my teeth looked normal, which had me very depressed. It was at this time that I arrived at Wellington Dentistry where I was treated by Dr. Nabhan who checked each of my teeth and my loose tooth only needed to be glued back into the containment as it was absolutely healthy, the team was friendly, empathetic, professional and the place was clean, I recommend it 100% I will go again for my checkups and any dental emergencies.
