Fillings

At Orchard House we provide both silver (Amalgam) fillings and white (Composite) fillings.

At Orchard House we provide both silver (Amalgam) fillings and white (Composite) fillings.Did you know that Fillings can be used for more than just filling a hole in a tooth? Many people do not realise that they can be used to reshape teeth to help give the patient a different shaped tooth for example a tooth that has been worn down by grinding or clenching can fixed with a small composite filling, this will build up the damaged tooth to it's normal height and shape. Some people may even want teeth to be a different shape, this can also be achieved using a simple composite filling material. Amalgam fillings are commonly used for back teeth as they are less visable and it is a hard wearing filling material. If an NHS patients would like a white filling on their back tooth they can ask the dentist about the option as currently under the NHS it is classed as a cosmetic treatment and will not be covered by your band 2 charge.
