If you require dental fillings, you've come to the right place. Briercliffe Road Dental Practice in Burnley has the experience and expertise to deal with patients who need dental fillings and we have a variety of dental filling options available, based on your requirements.
The most common fillings provided on the NHS are dental amalgam, which are a mixture of metals that include mercury, tin, silver and copper. Amalgam fillings are unsightly and many claim they are detrimental to health, but whilst I can understand these concerns there are occasions when an amalgam filling may be the only alternative to crowning a tooth, and if cost is a concern it is better to have the tooth restored than left broken. Tooth coloured or composite fillings which obviously blend in better with your teeth colour are the type we normally provide for our patients, and these are powdered glass and ceramic added to a resin base.
If your tooth has begun to decay, it's time to go in for a dental filling. Contact us for more details and to schedule your appointment.
