At Brixham Dental Practice, we appreciate the importance of natural, healthy looking
teeth for a confident smile. For this reason, we only use tooth-coloured, mercury-free
fillings on your teeth, created from contemporary materials and designed to blend in
with your natural tooth colour. For minor cosmetic changes to the shape of front teeth
we can also use the same technique which is often called bonding or instant veneers.
We are proud to offer all of our patients a white composite filling material called Venus
Diamond. This state-of-the-art innovative formula has been chosen by our dentists to
provide durable and aesthetically excellent white filling restorations. You will have
peace of mind that the filling not only looks great but functions like the original
A filling replaces part of a tooth that has been lost either to decay or accidental
fracture. Tooth-coloured fillings are virtually invisible and can really improve the
appearance of a smile.
White fillings can also be used to replace old amalgam (metal-based) fillings. Composite
bonding is a process in which tooth coloured materials are applied to a tooth’s surface,
hand crafted and sculpted into shape, hardened, and then polished for the ultimate
With tooth bonding the procedure takes about an hour. You’ll be in and out of the chair
before you know it. No injections and no drills. And the difference between the before
and after leaves many patients amazed!
Bonding is among the easiest and least expensive of cosmetic dental procedures. The
composite resin used in bonding can be shaped and polished to match the surrounding
teeth. Most often, bonding is used for cosmetic purposes to improve the appearance of a
discoloured or chipped tooth.
Some people feel sensitivity after they receive a filling. The tooth may be sensitive to
pressure, air, sweet foods or cold. Composite fillings often cause slight sensitivity
for a couple of days, but then settle. The most common reason for pain right after the
anesthetic wears off is that the filling is too high; this can be easily addressed by
polishing the filling to reduce the height to make it more comfortable for you.
