Almost everyone dreads the idea of having a filling, but most of us will require one or more fillings at some stage during our lives. The good news, however, is that the days of just being offered ugly, silver ‘amalgam’ fillings have long gone.
Fillings are one of the most routine dental procedures that we carry out at Lodwig Villa, but we no longer offer amalgam fillings. Amalgam contains a mixture of different metals, chief amongst them mercury, which is highly toxic to humans and believed to be responsible for a number of heath issues, which is why we are now a mercury-free practice.
We use the latest dental bonding techniques and repair individual teeth with a special material that looks, acts and feels like the real thing. We use materials to create white, natural-looking fillings only from quality sources, none of which contain any toxic compounds.
