What happens when you get fillings?

You may need a filling if you experience decay in a tooth. Our gentle dentist will first give you an anaesthetic to numb the area and then remove the decayed part of your tooth, filling it to protect the tooth, helping it maintain its strength and prevent further problems. 

At Dental Perfection in Kettering and Coventry we provide white or tooth-coloured fillings, both for new treatments options and as a replacement for older-style metal (amalgam) fillings.


White fillings

The fillings we use are known as composite fillings. They are made from a hard, strong and durable resin that your dentist can colour match and mould to the exact shape of your tooth, setting it using a blue light. Composite fillings offer an excellent, discreet solution for minor damage or decay.


How long do fillings last?

With normal wear and tear – and no toffees! – fillings will last many years. 


Replacing metal or amalgam fillings

If your old dark amalgam fillings are affecting your confidence to smile, the team at Dental Perfection is ready to help.

The latest white fillings are available in a range of colours and translucencies, so your dentist will be able to closely match the colour of your teeth to the new replacement fillings, giving the filling a natural appearance that others are unlikely to notice, so you can feel proud of your teeth once more.


Get in touch to find out more about our composite fillings or book an appointment today.


What Are The Best Fake Teeth?


An attractive smile can light up a room, turn heads, steal hearts, open doors and last a lifetime. If you have lost teeth, need a denture or have one that looks false and feel that your smile is now letting you down please talk to us about the different ways we can help boost your confidence.  


Realistic dentures

Old dentures used to be very white, very uniform, very wobbly – and very fake!

There is no substitute for your own teeth for both appearance and function – and making dentures that perform as well and look as good as natural teeth is a tough challenge. 

Dentures crafted at our Kettering and Coventry dental practices  will ensure you have an attractive appearance and can eat comfortably and confidently. Good dentures really can improve your quality of life.

Natural looking dentures

As we get older the colour of our teeth changes and they gradually darken. We offer more natural-looking false teeth, to include tooth shades that look realistic. 

Our dentures are made from hard-wearing material that mimics the look of teeth and gums to give your mouth a natural appearance. Your denture will be made to fit snugly on your gums and you will be able to remove it for cleaning.


How much do dentures from Dental Perfection cost?

We offer partial and full dentures and prices start from £300.


Don’t neglect your gums

It is important that you take extra care in your dental hygiene regime so that you can avoid bad breath, tooth decay and gum disease. Our hygienist, Caroline, will be able to show you how to best take care of your denture and gums and will tell you about specialised brushes you can use to do this. We will also screen you for mouth cancer for your peace of mind.
