Do you have a cavity? Do you want your grey amalgam fillings replaced? Are you experiencing sensitivity along the rim of a tooth due to receding gums? Or have you chipped or damaged part of your tooth?
A white filling (shaded in the appropriate colour to match your other teeth) can be used to repair your tooth. After treatment you will be able to chew normally again and your teeth will look much improved.
Why is it important to have a cavity repaired promptly?
By having your dentist fill a cavity as soon as possible, you avoid the cavity worsening and the associated pain intensifying. If you wait too long to have a cavity filled, inflammation can spread, resulting in the need for root canal treatment or even the loss of a tooth.
Is a composite filling better than an amalgam filling?
White (composite) fillings are the norm nowadays, mainly for aesthetic reasons. At Arnout & Hobbelink Dentists we choose to only use white composite or porcelain fillings.
The technique we use ensures that your new white filling is even stronger than amalgam fillings. We apply multiple layers and colourings during the procedure, resulting in a filling that is indistinguishable from the surrounding teeth.
A top quality filling for the same price
Arnout & Hobbelink Dentists choose to work with top products Filtek Supreme by 3M and Clearfil APX by Kuraray thanks to their aesthetic qualities and great durability. Applying these products in various colour layers results in a natural-looking filling that is indistinguishable from the surrounding teeth.
