Fillings are a safe and inexpensive way of treating dental cavities
A filling is a quick and convenient method of repairing a tooth damaged by decay. If you need a filling your DB dentist will remove the decayed tooth material, clean the affected area, and then pack the cleaned out cavity with a filling material. You dentist will make a recommendation on the type of filling suited to you and your health.
Composite (white coloured) fillings
Composite, or ‘white’ fillings, give a natural appearance and bond well to the tooth, so the filling is well sealed. If you need a large filling, composites may not be the ideal material as they can chip or wear over time.
If you think you may need a filling, it’s important to make an appointment to see us as soon as possible. Your DB dentist will be able to explain the options available to you, what the procedure will involve and how much it will cost.
What are dental fillings?
Dental fillings are used to restore worn or damaged teeth and treat tooth decay. Since different types of fillings are better for different conditions, your dentist will help you decide which is right for you. And we endeavour to minimise the need for fillings by helping you prevent future dental problems.
