White fillings may be suitable if your tooth has a small chip, crack or cavity, but most of its structure still remains. Most cavities are caused by tooth decay, which could cause further damage or lead to tooth loss if it's not treated in time.
A damaged tooth may feel painful or sensitive, affect your ability to eat or put you at risk of infection, so we recommend you contact our clinic as soon as you notice a problem. The dentists at Swish Dental will examine your mouth and tell you if you could benefit from a filling or another treatment.
If your tooth is too severely damaged or weak for a filling, we may recommend other options such as porcelain inlays and onlays or a dental crown.
