Why should I consider white fillings and composite dental bonding?
Most people have fillings of one sort or another in their mouths. Nowadays fillings are not only functional, but can be natural looking as well. Many people don't want silver fillings that show when they laugh or smile because they are more conscious about the way they look and about allergies to different metals. At Eyes & Smiles Barnet, we can provide natural white fillings and dental bonding to achieve this.
What are the benefits of white fillings and dental bonding?
White fillings and composite bonding at Eyes & Smiles Southgate look better in the mouth, don't corrode and are bonded to the tooth therefore they glue themselves to the tooth. This allows us to make tooth preparations conservative (less drilling needed) which will help keep your teeth for longer.
