No. White fillings are carried out under a local anaesthetic so you won’t feel a thing.
If you have a cavity, the chances are you’ll need a filling – and fortunately getting a filling in Long Sutton, Spalding and Lincolnshire is not the trial it once was. With composite resin, or white, fillings, you no longer need to put up with the ‘shadowed smile’ effect caused by traditional amalgam fillings. At The Lawns all our dentists are extremely experienced at fitting aesthetic tooth-coloured fillings. As well as looking completely natural, white fillings come with a number of benefits:
At The Lawns we’ve invested in the latest technology in dental restorations – so instead of multiple appointments and long waits for your crowns and bridges to be engineered in a lab, our patients can benefit from two systems that enable crowns, bridges and veneers to be fitted in a single appointment.
If you need a custom-made crown, bridge or veneer, the CEREC™ system makes the experience a whole lot easier! Traditional dental restorations involve two or three separate appointments, not to mention messy dental impressions, and a few weeks’ waiting time while a dental lab creates your crown – during which time you have to wear a cumbersome temporary plastic crown. But with CEREC™, the whole process is done in-house and reduced to a single appointment. Once you and your dentist are happy with your proposed restoration, CEREC™ digital technology translates the 3D image to an in-surgery milling machine, which accurately engineers your restoration from a block of colour-matched porcelain – all while you wait!
