PAIN FREE DENTISTRY
Pain free dental fillings that are invisible to the human eye
At Laffan Dental we focus on delivering safe and long-lasting fillings that will help to reinforce your tooth and protect what remains from further damage. Our expert dentists also provide amalgam replacement treatment for those want to replace their silver amalgam filling with a more natural looking composite filler.
Various Types of Dental Fillings
There are two main types of fillings: amalgam and composite. Silver amalgam fillings are the cheaper of the two and less technically demanding. However, they have been the subject of controversy over recent years as they contain mercury. Amalgam also has no adhesive qualities so they often result in fracture.
On the other hand, the natural-looking composite filling material has been designed to bond to the tooth, sealing and filling the gap without leaking or shifting in the mouth. As an added benefit, composite fillings also reinforce the tooth to make it more likely to survive.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much do fillings cost?
Silver fillings are priced from £45 and composite fillings are priced from £55. However, you can receive up to 20% off if you sign up to one of our Laffan Care plans.
How do I know if I need a filling?
If you think you might need a filling, book an appointment with a Laffan Dental dentist who will talk you through the right options for your teeth.
Do fillings stop me from eating normally?
Not at all. Fillings replace missing parts of your tooth to create a smooth surface similar to the original. This means you can eat just as you would before.
