Smïl is proud to provide you with a range of dental care options that aim to meet your expectations and desired outcome.
Our practice in Chatham primarily uses white fillings. These are sometimes called composite fillings, which are aesthetically pleasing and go a long way toward preserving the natural tooth structure. Silver fillings, also known as Amalgam, are also available.
‘White’ fillings consist of composite and resin materials, which are available in different shades to match your natural teeth for a near-invisible finish. The main benefit of composite filling materials is their natural appearance and ability to bond to tooth tissue, resulting in less preparation and preservation of natural tissues than ‘silver’ filling materials.

No, fillings are not a permanent solution. One of the key factors that will determine how long your dental filling will last is the material used to fill the tooth. Though composite fillings may someday need replacing, they are extremely durable and can last for many years.
Typically, fillings last around 10 years, though many can last much longer. In addition to the material used, there are many factors that can affect the longevity of your filling, including your overall oral health and your eating habits.
No, before your composite filling is fitted, your dentist will use an anaesthetic to numb your tooth, relieving you of feeling any pain.
Dental fillings are used to treat a small cavity in the tooth, caused by decay. If tooth decay is left untreated, it can cause severe pain, infection, and even tooth loss.
