Silver Fillings known as Amalgam have been around for decades. Made from a metal alloy, it was the best restoration for fillings. The metal expands and contracts with the heat and cold placed in the mouth. This allowed for little bacteria to enter a tooth once filled; keeping the tooth healthy and strong.
White Fillings, also known as composites are often made of plastic or glass polymers. These cosmetic fillings allow us to fill a cavity with a substance that will look and feel just like your existing tooth structure. This restoration is created with a resin material and bonds tightly into a tooth to prevent decay.

Check-up, Scale, Clean & Fluoride Treatment
Because we have the highest standards of patient care in mind, we recommend starting with a comprehensive examination, followed by your own personalised treatment recommendations. If further examination of a tooth is required, X-rays maybe required at $45.00 each.
We believe the initial checkup is so important in establishing diagnoses and correct treatment, that we have made it as accessible and affordable as possible.
