Restorations


White fillings for an aesthetic looking smile avoids even knowing you have a filling

Fillings: What are they?

A filling is a treatment used to restore a tooth that has been damaged by decay back to its normal shape and function. 
The procedure involves the dentist numbing the tooth then cleaning the decay then filling the cavity with a filling material, either composite resin or porcelain.

Composite Resin Fillings

Composite resin is a tooth coloured material, which is placed and formed directly in your mouth. Composite fillings are ideal for small to medium sized fillings.

Tooth Decay

Prevention is always better than a cure. 

3 in 10 Australians aged 25-44 have untreated tooth decay and the same number either delay or avoid a visit to the dentist due to cost. (AIHW-2017)
Did you know that you can prevent tooth decay with good oral hygiene and regular check up appointments at the dentist? When you visit the dentist routinely we can spot tooth decay in the early stages and offer treatment to prevent decay from getting worse. It’s not ideal finding yourself in a situation where you may need a root canal or extraction.
