Fillings

Fillings

Fillings are among the most common type of restorative treatment and are used to treat tooth decay or wear cavities.

Dental amalgam is the traditional silver-coloured filling we are all familiar with. Although there is mercury in dental amalgam, once it is combined with the other materials in the amalgam filling, its chemical nature is changed, rendering it harmless. Research into the safety of dental amalgam has been carried out for over a century and to date, no trustworthy controlled studies have found a connection between amalgam fillings and any medical problem. That notwithstanding, the use of amalgam is being phased out by many European countries due to its mercury content and the fact that we now have a tooth-coloured durable alternative called composite.

See about composite fillings here.

Patient Reviews


I would recommend anyone with gum disease to consider every form of treatment possible. You can really feel confident of the skill and approach the Haven team...Diane, Cookham
All my questions were answered in as much detail as I needed. I would recommend that anyone with a gap considers this option. I couldn’t be more pleased...Joan Campbell, Lower Earley
Now I feel a lot more confident and would certainly recommend the treatment – my only regret is that I didn’t have it sooner!Matt, Earley

As a new patient my visit went smoothly and efficiently. On meeting Ann for the first time I found her very welcoming and reassuring. I was extremely grateful as an anxious patient who has not had good experiences elsewhere. I feel more confident undertaking treatments required.

Dear Mr Clift, Thank you so much for taking the time and trouble to bring this matter to our attention. I cannot apologise enough that you were not made aware of the costs prior to the treatment being undertaken. We shall certainly review our procedures to try and ensure that this does not happen again. As a gesture of goodwill we would like to refund 50% of the filling costs and if you care to call the practice we can arrange this for you. We value our patients’ loyalty to the practice and are always pleased to be made aware when our service falls below that which is expected of us. Yours sincerely, Ann Carter

Not pleased with the service. I have went to the practice as a new patient for a check-up and a cavity that needs to be treated. I've had the scan and the treatment plan but the price for most of the items are above the indicative price set in the clinic website even for fixed priced items such as the 30 mins hygiene appointment. I have asked the reception to provide me with the priority treatment list vs what's good to do, so I can budget for them. I was promised to receive them once the dentist become free and it's over a week now and I haven't received anything.

We've been treated at this dental practice for over 30 years, and have every confidence in Ann Carter and, somewhat more recently, Stephanie Brown, the dental practitioners there. They are very professional, knowledgeable, well-equipped, and extremely pleasant to deal with. Their support staff are also clearly very capable and good. Our dental health has been in very good hands, and they have managed the various problems which age brings extremely competently, referring us to other specialists on the rare occasions when that has been necessary. We can recommend them without hesitation.

Ann is very gentle and thorough. The whole team put you at ease and are easy to talk to if you have any concerns, no matter how silly you think they may be.

Everything went well to preserve my remaining 6 teeth for which i am very grateful,but how do you justify a rate of over £300 per hour to a mere old age pensioner?

very kind and professional people. Got a wisdom tooth removed, it went well, they careful checked that I received enough local anaesthetic to not feel anything. They kindly phoned me the day after to check that I was allright. I am planning to get a second wisdom tooth removed since it went so well. I highly recommend this dental practice.

Feeling a little anxious as I had not been to the dentist for a while, but the team at The Haven made me feel comfortable from booking my appointment through to my consultation. A clear explanation of the treatment required allowed me to feel confident that I had picked the right dental practice.

I am a relatively new patient at Haven having only visited on 3 occasions with my 4th visit due soon. Historically I have been an NHS patient at various dentists and have not always had a good experience (some quite terrible). Visiting Haven is the first time going private and the difference in care is like night and day, I wish I had gone private years ago but I was under the misconception that it was a waste of money paying for something you can get for a fraction of the price on NHS, I mean its all the same right??? wrong!!! At Haven everything from the initial consultation to the final treatment is completely unrushed, explained properly and most importantly the treatments are carried out competently with minimal pain. You can also tell that the staff here care about their patients rather than run a business like a sausage factory rushing people in and out. You cannot put a price on your health and as the saying goes 'you get what you pay for' and all I can say is its worth every penny going private and at Haven you won't regret it.

I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this dental practice to anyone. However nervous you might be - have no fear. Nothing is too much trouble to ensure your visit will be pain free and even a pleasure because everyone is so kind and working together to make it so. I have been a patient of Ann's for many years. Having a slightly unusual dental history I could have been considered to be somewhat of a 'not her again' person but I have always been certain that whatever is necessary will be carried out to the highest standard in a calm and peaceful environment. Ann and the whole team have never failed to make me feel at ease, safe and confident that nothing is too much trouble for any of them.I cannot stress how much regard I have for all concerned - they are without doubt just the best.

I'm not sure if anyone actually loves going to the dentist - but I have been going to The Haven Practice for over 10 years now, and I have always found the check-ups and care I received to be first class and professional. The attention and attitude always engender confidence in me, and I have had excellent treatment when this was necessary, with an emphasis on careful examination, appropriate remedial intervention and problem prevention.I would not hesitate to recommend The Haven!

This must be the friendliest dental practice in the area. The receptionist is helpful and efficient. The dentist, Stephanie Brown always manages to put me at ease and offers excellent care and general advice on dental hygiene. The nurses are absolutely lovely. Many of my family and friends travel long distances for their dental treatment at the The Haven because it is so good.

I have been using the Haven DP for several years now as a private patient and on the recommendation of a close friend and compared with several previous dentists I have always enjoyed excellent advice across a wide range of procedures (including implants) and always received gentle and pain free in-house treatments. Requests for emergency treatment have also been dealt with promptly and completely satisfactorily.All the staff are very pleasant and caring and I could not recommend them highly enough!!

I have been using Haven Dental practice for the last 7 years and have found the service to be consistently high. As a relatively small practice they provide a personal service. Both Ann and Steph have provided comprehensive care and advice in all our interactions. I can highly recommend them to others.

All the team at the practise are really friendly and welcoming and have made me feel much less worried about visiting the dentist and hygenist. I actually trust them with my teeth now which is great after having a couple of horrible experiences at another practise. I must say a big thanks, in particular, to Gail who has been so understanding over the past year or so and has helped me to not dread the scaler every visit.

I had some really bad experiences at the dentist as a child however since moving to the Haven more than 20 years ago I have benefitted from the care of Ann & her team particularly last year when they saved a bridge and crown. I still don't enjoy going but its now a much more pleasant experience. Going to the Dentist 1 star, Practise care & experience 5 star - Recommended

This is a calm and professional dental practice, where I always feel at ease. The waiting room has been much improved since the display cabinets and wall notices have been removed - much more relaxing now. I am really sorry that Gail has now left, but look forward to meeting the new Hygienist.

My wife and I have been with Haven Dental Practice for over 30 years and our now grown up children have been there since birth. Even though we have moved house several times in that period, we would never consider changing practice. Ann is professional and friendly and the atmosphere of the practice is as the name implies calm and relaxed. Ann is supported by a loyal team of workers and going 'to the dentist' has never been a worry for any of us.

Recently visited for a check-up. I was made to feel at ease and felt that the dentist had a lovely bedside manner. The practice was clean and calm, and all the staff were friendly and professional. The appointment was thorough and everything was explained to me in detail. Will definitely visit again if I ever need treatment.

Having just visited Haven again, I was very surprised how homely and friendly the practice feels. Not like a dentist at all really. I had a nice early appointment which still allowed me to get the train I wanted from the station which is seconds away and really enjoyed chatting to the dentist and staff. Very impressed.

I have been seeing Ann Carter since 1982. She does not over treat - unlike my previous dentist. She is wonderful and gentle (with the drill).I can't think of a single problem with her in 30 years. On the odd occasion, When Dr Carter is away, I saw Steph Brown. Again, no complaints.
