If the decay is not too serious, our cosmetic dentist will remove all the decay and restore the tooth with a white (tooth coloured) filling. We can safely replace silver amalgam fillings with white tooth coloured fillings. Dental decay happens when the enamel and dentine of a tooth become softened by acid attack, producing a cavity (hole). More about decay detection in our Preventive Dentistry section.
Instant Veneers, Harrow Weald’s alternative to ceramic veneers
These are a great way to change the look and feel of your front teeth, and indeed your back teeth too for that matter.Instant veneers take a small amount of dental ‘composite’ material which is then used to cover the ‘faulty’ area of your tooth. This amazing technique can be used to cover up.
- Dark Teeth
- Uneven Teeth
- Chipped Teeth
- Teeth with Pits
