If you are experiencing tooth pain, we suggest you visit our practice in Maida Vale (4 minutes from St John’s Wood), so we can investigate the level and stage of tooth decay. Most toothache problems can be dealt with quickly with standard procedures like dental fillings.
To treat a cavity, we will remove the decayed portion of the tooth and then fill the area with a material of your choice. Here at Maida Smiles, as a cosmetic clinic, we can offer white fillings to help repairs blend flawlessly within the mouth while protecting your tooth structure simultaneously.
“Excellent first experience. Easy to book online, the dentist saw me quickly and finished my cavity filling within 20 minutes. Nice offices with calming music. It was even quite affordable compared to others in the area. Couldn’t be happier, I highly recommend it.”

There are several dental filling materials for patients, each with its benefits.
Patients can choose gold, porcelain, silver amalgam or tooth-coloured plastic (composite resin fillings).
But how do you know which type is the best for you? Often, it can be down to the patient’s choice.
However, the extent of the decay, cost and our dentist’s recommendations all assist in finding the best choice for you.
There are two main types of filling:
The main difference between the two is that one is placed immediately, and the other is placed on a second appointment. Indirect fillings offer a more durable, better-fitting result at a cost and a slower pace.
