Natural-Looking Amalgam-Free Dental Repairs

Cavities are caused by bacteria eroding the tooth’s surface. This decay causes sensitivity and pain and leaves your tooth open to infection.

Fillings repair damaged enamel, stopping toothache and preventing disease. For years, durable, long-lasting mercury amalgam has been the material of choice for fillings—but the black tell-tale black spots it creates on teeth aren’t always a great look.

But modern tooth-coloured materials can match metal fillings in terms of longevity, meaning we can treat cavities without leaving a mark on your teeth.

Even better—iInvisible fillings are just as hardwearing as amalgam and have a much reduced treatment and recovery time.


Tooth Decay Symptoms

Ideally, early signs of tooth decay are detected during routine checkups. However, it’s important to be aware of these symptoms:

  • Sensitivity to hot or cold food and beverages
  • Pain or discomfort while biting or chewing
  • Throbbing pain in the tooth even when not eating
  • Visible cavity
  • Loss or damage to an existing filling

Placing Your Filling

Before placing your filling, we’ll numb the treatment area. Next, we’ll remove any decayed enamel and clean and dry the tooth. Once the site is debris and bacteria-free, we’ll apply the resin that perfectly matches the colour of your tooth.


Amalgam Removal

Amalgam is a material commonly used in fillings. But while the mercury metal composite may have been a cost-effective option for repairing cavities, the dark metallic fillings are less attractive than tooth-coloured alternatives, and you may have concerns about the mercury content.

The CDC takes pride in being an amalgam-free clinic, offering subtle tooth-coloured composite fillings that provide natural-looking cavity repair. We can also replace old, unwanted amalgam fillings with solid and discreet alternatives.


The Amalgam Replacement Process

Amalgam filling removal is a routine procedure. To ensure your comfort, we’ll provide anaesthetic. We’ll also use a protective dam, water spray, and suction for complete, safe mercury removal.

Once we’ve removed the amalgam filling, we can replace it. Because tooth-coloured composite resin fillings bond to the tooth quickly with less mechanical retention, the procedure is brief, involves less drilling, and has a shorter recovery time.

Elena loved her smile, but a few small gaps and other minor niggles were letting the side down. The CDC achieved these stunning results with Invisalign® and whitening.

Lynsey Kiszel

I have recently had teeth whitening and composite bonding completed at The Cosmetic Dental Clinic. I felt the professionalism, friendliness and efficiency of all the staff at the clinic was very good. I couldn’t be happier with the results and for anyone wanting a similar treatment, I would highly recommend Matt and the team at the clinic.

Callum Reed

Excellent service throughout my full process, starting from Jacqueline’s welcome as you walk through the doors to my brand new amazing smile, courtesy of David Bretton. Couldn’t speak any higher about CDC, would recommend to absolutely anyone thinking about Invisalign, bonding or any other procedure!

Stephen Hall

Stop reading and book it in!!! From start to finish my experience is always great. I had a full Invisalign treatment with bonding and whitening and the results are amazing thanks to Nigel and the team. I can not recommend enough and have referred my partner and friend who have now started their journey and are so pleased. Thanks everyone 😃

Carly Ellis

Can’t fault any part of the service and care I received from the Cosmetic Dental Clinic. After spending years being embarrassed about my teeth, I can’t believe how they look now. Can honestly say it has changed my life and how I feel. My only regret is that I didn’t get it done sooner!

Nyree Fraser 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Outstanding work by Nigel Parkash. A wonderfully talented man, I would advocate after having Invisalign and composite bonding. The team, from Jackie, Jess and Ellie always professional and welcoming, exceptional service throughout!

Rachael Luther 

Mat Sims was my dentist at the clinic and I couldn’t have asked for a better result with my new smile. Mat and Tiff are both lovely and always made me feel at ease when in the chair and I am so so happy with the way my teeth look. 100% recommend to anyone who would like to invest in their smile, the best decision I’ve ever made.
