Composite Fillings

Composite fillings are used to fill in holes (caused by decay) in your teeth.

Why would you want Composite Fillings?

When tooth decay sets in and erodes away the tooth structure, holes can start to appear. Its very important that these holes are not left untreated as bacteria can start to creep in and cause further complications with the tooth (leading to potential tooth loss).

Composite is a friendlier white material (than amalgam) that is made to blend in with your natural tooth. So not only will it plug up the hole (cavity) but it will also be more aesthetically pleasing than a silver filling.

Have you got amalgam fillings (silver) and would like to update to a composite filling (white)? Here’s an example of what our dentists can do, your composite filling won’t only be tooth coloured but also tooth shaped. It’s amazing how realistic they look.

How to prevent cavities?

We are big advocates for preventative dentistry. What this means is, we want to look after your natural teeth for as long as possible. The best treatment in dentistry is to prevent problems from occurring.

Cavities are linked with poor oral hygiene and the foods/drinks you consume. Sugar is our teeth’s worst enemy. Sugar leaves a film over our teeth which in turn creates an acid, that actively eats away at our teeth. For best practice, it is advisable to brush your teeth after every meal to remove any left over food debris or sugary film.

Now we know that after every meal can seem quite extreme – but this would be the gold standard to taking care of teeth. The daily guidelines are at least twice a day (which can still deliver very good oral hygiene).

Mani and Abby looked after me today and did a marvellous job. Very attentive and cheerful looking forward to seeing their faces in six months at my check up. Keep up the good work.

Brilliant service! I wasn’t a patient at this practice when I phoned for my initial appointment, but I had a dental emergency and was not getting the right care at my previous practice. Stourcote Dental fitted me in for an appointment fast, identified what needed to be done, and sorted me out. They were friendly and caring from start to finish. Everyone I dealt with was lovely, I’ve never had such great dental care. I’m terrified of going to the dentist so extra special thanks for taking care of me. I’ll be a lot less nervous when I come back!

I’ve been a patient and my children have too and i must say that the reception staff especially Ann are wonderful. So helpful, friendly and polite all the time. Their customer service is second to none.
Viz the dentist I’ve been seeing is amazing so kind and caring and a perfectionist. Boys treatment under NHS has been very slow. There was an admin error at the beginning which delayed their treatment but not sure who’s fault that was but Ann has been a great help moving this forward. Obviously due to Covid its not a priority by any means. Thank you for your hard work and adapting so swiftly all the time.

I recently joined Stourcote after a traumatic experience with another dentist. From the outset they were really welcoming & listened to my concerns & demonstrated that they wanted to help.
I’ve now seen Manisha a few times & even though I’m a ridiculously nervous patient (I started crying as soon as I sat in the chair today), she was so lovely and understanding. I felt safe, in control & comfortable.
I will never enjoy visiting the dentist but Stourcote have made it manageable for me, so I can’t recommend highly enough.

Sue, Working Feedback

I have suffered some awful mouth sores over the past week and I was pleased with the very prompt appointment today (Monday) that I was provided with, having raised an online request only on Saturday.
On Saturday evening, one of the doctors (Dr Jandu?) phoned me and helped me with a recommended course of action and he followed through by making me the appointment with Matthew Walker today. I was greeted in a friendly, upbeat manner by the dental nurse and I felt very reassured after today’s visit. Mr Walker will phone me in a week, to see how things are progressing.
Overall an excellent level of care and all “very joined up”.
