Protecting and restoring your teeth
When natural teeth experience tooth decay, they may require a dental filling. As one of the most common dental treatments performed by Dentists, fillings are an effective way of restoring tooth structure that has been lost to decay.
If you experience pain or sensitivity when you eat, drink and brush your teeth, you may wish to get us to assess your teeth and look for cavities or holes.
What is a filling?
A filling or white filling is a tooth-coloured mixture used to restore the function, integrity and morphology of missing tooth structure, typically caused by a caries or an external trauma.
White fillings are an easy and cost effective way of restoring the health of your teeth and your smile.
How is the filling placed?
The first step consists of removing the damaged area of the tooth. This is followed by preparing the composite filling material. Next, the composite is placed in layers and quickly hardened with a special light. Finally, the composite is shaped and polished to prevent any sharp areas.
The whole procedure is performed in one, simple visit!
