Fillings have long played an important role in dentistry. A well-timed filling can greatly prolong the life of a tooth and avoid the need for more extensive dental work. At Keppel Dentistry we always aim to spot areas of tooth decay as early as possible, using dental x-rays to check areas which can’t be seen by the naked eye.
Of course, it’s important for a filling to look right as well as doing its job in helping you maintain good dental health. We always use ‘white’ dental fillings – more accurately called tooth-coloured – which closely match the tone of your natural teeth. We believe it’s particularly worthwhile to make sure you don’t have unsightly grey fillings at the front or back of your mouth. We want you to be able to talk, eat and laugh without displaying a row of dark-coloured fillings to the world!
