Fillings are a safe and inexpensive way of treating dental cavities
A filling is a fast, simple and convenient way of repairing missing tooth substance or structure, and they are a common, safe and inexpensive way of treating dental cavities.
If you need a filling, in general, you have two options.
Composite (White Coloured) Fillings
Natural looking, composite or ‘white’ fillings bond well to the tooth, so the filling is well sealed. They are also repairable in the event of a chip.
Amalgam (Silver) Fillings
Long lasting amalgam fillings are often used today for larger cavities, or to fill cavities at the back of your mouth, where they add strength to the tooth’s structure.
If you have a cavity or you think you may need a filling, it’s important for your oral care to make an appointment to see us as soon as possible. Your DB Dental dentist will explain the options available to you, what the procedure will involve and how much it will cost. Use the Book Now button above to get an instantly confirmed appointment.
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.
What kind of dental fillings are available?
We offer sophisticated, gentle procedures using state of the art materials. Fillings are available in tooth coloured resin or porcelain.
