WHITE FILLINGS

Unlike silver (amalgam) fillings, white filling material sticks to teeth and can form edges, so it may be effectively used to repair front teeth that are chipped, broken, decayed or worn. It can also be used as a “veneer” to cover marks or discolouration that cleaning won’t remove. White fillings are less noticeable than silver fillings, which may turn black in the mouth. White fillings come in a range of shades so they can be matched to the colour of your own teeth. A tooth needs less preparation for a white filling than for a silver filling.

Your dentist will:

1. Remove any decay, together with any old filling material, using a small, high-speed drill

2. Remove any weak part of the tooth which might break later

3. Wash and dry the tooth by blowing water and then air onto it (the dentist will be holding something which looks like a water pistol)

4. Etch the surface to be restored with a mild acid, to help the filling stick better

5. Coat the surface that is to be restored with a bonding agent (which acts like cement) and then place the filling material -this is pushed into the cavity that is to be filled and it is shaped as required

6. Harden the filling by pointing a bright light at it, inside your mouth (you will see the dentist and dental nurse protecting their eyes)- this is called “curing”; and trim and polish the filling as necessary

No one likes the dentist - right? Well in general that may be true, but the team at Mansion House Dental may go some way to changing your mind. Having neglected visiting for way too long, toothache (of course!) made me seek out a City-based dentist. On a recommendation from my friend I booked Mansion House Dental and was seen by Dr Qasim Abbasi. I've visited a few times in the last year. Professional, skilled and effective - all the things you would expect. But on top of that Dr Qasim has gone out of his way to make sure I am comfortable and clear about the treatment I am receiving. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Thank you.

The guys at mansion house have done an amazing job giving me a great smile in time for my wedding. They delivered a complete service, including invisalign and manual tooth building work. They worked to a tight timeframe and really went above and beyond. Thanks so much guys.

Cannot recommend Dr Qasim Abbasi more highly. Thoroughly professional and clearly very knowledgable with respect to dental innovation. Recent experience of a front tooth cap procedure was not only pain free, but very successful aesthetically and exceeded my expectations. Competitively priced for such a central location. I would not hesitate to recommend the practice. Karen Stevenson.

Dr Qasim and the whole team at Mansion House Dental have been nothing short of exceptional from start to finish. They take the time to thoroughly explain everything that’s needed and really put an emphasis on preventative treatments, rather than rushing into work that might needn’t be done. Onto top of this, it’s is all done in such a calming and relaxed environment, which really helps put you at ease. Really cannot recommend them highly enough. Thanks again team.

Great experience (and that is saying something as I am not someone who enjoys a trip to the dentist). Everything is explained prior to agreeing your treatment plan and, having had the necessary work completed now, I am very happy with the results and the aftercare (all included in the price). The whole team is friendly and professional and having tried a few dentists in the area I am happy to recommend the Mansion House Dental Practice. Overall excellent.

Was able to be booked in and treated with a very fast turn around. The treatment itself was of a very high quality. I'm very happy with the service and would highly recommend it even if it means travelling into the city.

As someone who isn't a fan of the dentist and had been going to the same practice for over 18 years, it's safe to say I was slightly apprehensive for my first visit last week. 5 minutes in and I realised there was no need to worry - Not only is Dr. Abbasi patient and friendly, every other member is welcoming and the practice itself feels nothing like your typical dentist. Highly recommend!

Really impressed with these guys. I was massively worried about the Invisalign process and the team here really put me at ease. Taking me through the process clearly and efficiently with no hard selling. When I first got my braces I kept panicking about every little thing and it was never a problem to drop in and speak to one of the experts who did everything to put me at ease. The team are so friendly and are happy to answer queries in person, by phone or email. The costs of treatment are clear with no nasty surprises. Can't recommend enough!
