Decayed or damaged teeth can be successfully repaired with fillings. At Cox and Hitchcock, we offer two types of fillings. NHS dentistry can provide amalgam fillings, which are a safe, cost-effective method that restores a tooth’s shape and functionality in a very durable way. If you are concerned about the aesthetics of a metal filling, we also offer tooth coloured fillings. However these aren’t always available as part of an NHS course of treatment.

Amalgam Fillings

Amalgam fillings have been used for over 150 years and are made of a combination of metals including silver, tin, copper and mercury. The inclusion of mercury has caused some controversy, but numerous scientific studies have dismissed any link between its use and any adverse health effects. Amalgam fillings are also inexpensive, durable and quicker to place than other types of fillings.

However, amalgam fillings are not recommended for pregnant women or children under the age of 15.

If you would prefer to have tooth coloured fillings rather than metal, your dentist will be happy to discuss the pros and cons with you along with all associated costs.
