WHAT ARE AMALGAM FREE FILLINGS?

Amalgam free fillings are made from hard-wearing, composite resin.

The tooth-coloured resin is used to fill the tooth – giving a natural-looking finish. It also protects the tooth’s structure and allows you to rediscover the joy of eating.

Signs that you need a filling can include sensitivity when drinking hot or cold drinks. In some cases, patients don’t realise they need treatment. This is one of many reasons why regular dental check-ups are crucial.

With amalgam free fillings at Wytes you can:

  • Wave goodbye to anxiety caused by noticeable silver-coloured fillings or damaged teeth
  • Feel radiant with tooth-coloured fillings that blend in with your smile
  • Stop future problems: When a decayed tooth is not treated, the damage can quickly worsen

We perform this treatment under local anaesthetic so it should not be painful. You may feel some sensitivity in the first few days after treatment.

We recommend waiting 48 hours before eating or drinking any dark food or liquid – amalgam free fillings are more susceptible to staining in the days after treatment. The good news is you should find eating more pleasurable with your new filling.
