Fillings are necessary when you have developed a cavity, a piece of tooth has broken, or an existing filling requires replacement. Our dentists only use white tooth-coloured materials to restore your teeth making the fillings practically undetectable.
Composite resin is reliable, durable and visually pleasing than old amalgam material. For larger restorations and replacement of big, old amalgam fillings, the composite resin is unlikely to be a sufficient long-term option. In these cases, porcelain inlay/onlay is the ideal course of treatment.
What happens during the procedure?
For tooth decay, we will give you pain relief to numb the area and make sure you don’t feel a thing. We will then remove the decay using a drill and other tools. We will clean and dry the cavity and then fill it to return it to its original shape and appearance.
What if a filling isn’t enough?
Our innovative and modern technology, partnered with our understanding of your unique needs, work hand in hand to give you back your confident smile. Apart from fillings, we offer other restorative solutions such as:
- Inlays or onlays
- Dental crowns, bridges, or dentures
- Dental implants
- Root canal treatment
How to avoid fillings?
Preventative 6 monthly dental check-ups are the best way to avoid the need for fillings. By detecting tooth decay early and acting, you avoid more extensive (and expensive) treatment.
Tooth decay doesn’t hurt, but once it’s present it only gets bigger. Contact us to discuss your concerns.
