Only dentists can detect whether you have a cavity that needs filling.

However, you’ll likely experience toothache, tooth pain or sensitivity to hot or cold foods and beverages.

And if you’re experiencing tooth pain, please do not hesitate to get some help.

Once toothache begins, it will rarely subside without the intervention of dental professionals, who can stop and prevent harmful bacteria from causing you any discomfort in the first place.

Restore heavily decayed and painful teeth

The quickest way our dentists can restore damaged and heavily decayed teeth back to their normal function and state are with dental fillings.

When we place a filling, we first remove the decayed tooth material, clean the affected area and then fill the cavity with the filling material of your choice. Material choices we offer include gold, porcelain, composite resin (tooth-coloured) and amalgam.

By closing these gaps, we’re preventing bacteria from entering and causing further tooth decay.

“My entire family is treated here, and we’ve had great experiences with the hygienist and Dr Raj Patel. Dr Patel has been lovely with our two young children and has treated me for a root canal repair and fitting a crown. He was thorough, explained all of the options and the pros and cons and best of all his work was great. We will miss them when we move out of London shortly! Best dentist I’ve had in the UK.” – Tara, Walworth.

How to tell if you need a filling right away

If you’re experiencing a nagging toothache, sudden pain when biting or sensitivity to hot or cold, then it’s time to book an appointment with a dentist.

The enamel destruction is irreversible when decay begins to impact and damage your tooth. If cavities are ignored or go without treatment like dental fillings, the decay can spread and worsen, destroying the healthiest parts of your mouth and teeth.

And if you let enough time go by, our dentists might be unable to repair the tooth with an affordable, conventional filling.

Please don’t wait until it’s too late.

Why you might need a tooth filling

  • Tooth decay is one of the most common causes of dental fillings. When acids in plaque begin to soften and dissolve your enamel, it causes tiny holes that grow bigger and bigger, called cavities. These open cavities then collect bacteria.
  • Acid erosion is when your protective enamel coating begins to wear away due to certain foods, drinks and medical conditions.
  • Chipped or broken teeth, whether part of an injury or due to eating hard foods, can expose the inner parts of the tooth that, over time, begin to erode.
  • Abrasion and attrition are when teeth begin to erode and are worn down – this can happen from tooth grinding (bruxism) or brushing too aggressively.

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.

Excellent dental practice. A very smartly turned-out surgery. Staff are polite and very professional. I am impressed with the modern teeth scanning equipment. Dr Raj Patel will put you at ease. He is highly professional dentist. I have no problem in recommending Dr Patel and the rest of the Mint team.

Dental filling treatment in London

During a general check-up, one of our dentists will use a small mirror to examine the surfaces of each tooth.

If anything looks slightly irregular, we will further inspect the area with special instruments to analyse the scope of the issue.

The treatment the dentist will prescribe next will depend on the damage caused by the decay. But more often than not, dental fillings will likely be your best option.

White fillings – no one will notice

White or tooth-coloured fillings are often made from powdered glass and ceramic added to a resin base. With white fillings, the dentist will match the shade of white to one that mimics your natural tooth colour – so your fillings blend with your smile seamlessly.

Even though amalgam (silver) fillings are cheaper, white fillings are a popular patient choice as they are hardly noticeable when smiling. However, fillings are an essential preventive dentistry treatment.

So when considering which one will be best for you, it will be better if one of our dentists, like Dr Patel, advises on the type as he has extensive experience and has placed thousands of fillings in his time as a dentist.
