Dental Fillings

Restorative filling options from £70 per tooth at our friendly dental clinic in SE London

  • Fill holes or cavities from getting out of control
  • Prevent dental decay and infection
  • Protect the soft pulp tissue of the tooth

Tooth decay is a common dental issue.

It is caused by plaque build-up on the teeth reacting with sugars in the mouth to create harmful acids that dissolve away the enamel and dentine. This damage causes cavities that can lead to toothache and sensitivity.

What types of fillings are available?

Amalgam (silver) fillings feature a combination of metals that include silver, tin, mercury, and copper. They are a cost-effective option.

Many patients prefer a more cosmetically pleasing alternative to metal fillings, especially if the affected tooth is toward the front of the mouth.

Composite, a tooth-coloured material incorporating elements of glass and acrylic resin, is an excellent cosmetic and minimally invasive option for the patient.

Using composite allows your dentist to preserve more of your natural tooth. In some cases, areas of decay can be removed by air abrasion without discomfort or drilling – the ideal preparation before a filling. Composite fillings have vastly improved in strength in recent years and are a popular treatment at Mint Dental.

What to expect during the dental filling process

To preserve the health of your tooth, your dentist will remove the decay and seal the tooth with a dental filling.

Under a local anaesthetic, they will use a small drill and air abrasion to remove the decayed tissue before filling the cavity and polishing it for a smooth finish.

4 years a customer and always professional yet friendly service. Corrected my major issues (fillings/caps) and while they're keen to ensure ongoing 'perfect teeth' they don't hard sell peripheral / optional treatments. Highly recommended

I was looking for somewhere with a personal touch, that I could trust and that’s what I got at Mint. They always remember my name and are so polite. After a year of zoom meetings I really wanted my teeth to be straight and the results completely surpassed my expectations. I now feel comfortable taking photos! The team explained everything clearly (I felt I could ask anything multiple times) appointments were always organised and it was a really easy, worthwhile process. My teeth look like my teeth but are now at their best.

The clinic is a really lovely place to visit - it is extremely clean and all of the staff are very friendly. They were kind and reassuring all the way through my Invisalign treatment - as well as having amazing technology at their disposal. Dr Imran is so accommodating and kept everything simple, addressing any concerns straight away. All in all I would definitely recommend Mint Dental Clinic, a lovely experience all round.

Best dentist I’ve ever had! Have completed a year of Invisalign with Dr Patel and he has been so reassuring and kind throughout. From the reception staff to hygenists they really go above and beyond to make you feel looked after and special. I couldn’t recommend them enough!

Over the past six years Dr Raj and Preanka and all of the team at Mint have been exceptional. Every member of the team is exemplary at their expertise and I've never felt in better hands at the dentist. Affordable and top of the range, I would recommend them to anyone.
