Fillings

dental fillings Williams Landing

Why might I need a filling?

You may need a filling if your tooth has decay (e.g. has a black spot), has suffered trauma, or you have broken a tooth. Whichever it is, you will need to see your dentist as soon as possible.

What type of material will be used?

There are many different materials that may be used; the type of material used will depend on how much of the tooth structure has been affected. Generally, we use a composite resin material (white fillings), which is matched to your natural tooth colour. However, if there has been a lot of tooth structure lost it may need more extensive treatment i.e. a crown.

COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Dear Patients,

In accordance with the recent announcement of Level 3 restrictions associated with the Coronavirus outbreak, general dental practice being an essential service will remain open for business but under limited services.

The measures have been put into place to minimise the risk to our patients, their families and our staff.

Unfortunately at this stage, all routine examinations and treatment will need to be deferred. To meet regulations, we are able to continue to provide care for those who require emergency or urgent treatment. Every patient who has any dental concerns will be triaged to see if they meet the criteria as set out by the Dental Practice Board for treatment. Although we would love to be able to address all patients, we hope you understand that due strict guidelines this may not be possible at this present moment.

We are screening all patients for symptoms who attend our clinic along with our routine high standard infection-control protocols. We ask that all of our patients assist us in keeping Williams Landing Dental Clinic Coronovirus-free by not attending the clinic if you are suffering any symptoms which may be associated with the Coronavirus or if you are in self isolation due to risk of contact with the virus.

We appreciate that this is a stressful time for everyone and thank you for your patience. We look forward to looking after your smiles again when things return to normal.

Stay safe.
The Team at Williams Landing Dental Clinic
