Tooth Fillings

Tootth Filling Detail 01

Despite how much we want our teeth to remain strong for a lifetime, without a dentist’s help it is not possible.

Decay can develop on areas that are not properly brushed, including the molars. When this happens, you need to see your dentist right away.

Decay doesn’t stop after ruining the tooth it has first set into. Cavities can also affect the neighboring teeth or the infection can cause a dental abscess affecting the jawbone.

Before any of this can happen, see your Caringbah Dental Care dentist right away. We have dental treatments meant to stop the decay from completely ruining your tooth and bring back its beauty and strength at the same time.

Tooth fillings are one of our dental treatments that can do this. Read on to learn more.

What Are Dental Fillings?

Dental fillings are resin material bonded onto a damaged tooth to restore strength and shape. The most common type is the composite filling, or the tooth coloured fillings. The materials used match the natural tooth shade and therefore look natural as opposed to amalgam fillings.

Uses Of Dental Fillings

Dental fillings are used for the following dental problems:

  • Decayed tooth
  • Fractured/chipped tooth
  • Cracked or broken tooth
  • Small gaps in between teeth
  • Worn teeth
Top Benefits of Tooth Coloured Fillings

The following are the top benefits of tooth coloured fillings:

  • Blend naturally with teeth
  • Conservation (only the decayed parts are removed)
  • No metal or mercury content
  • Return strength of tooth
  • Stop decay from progressing
  • Protect tooth from further strain
The Tooth Filling Procedure

Ideal candidates undergo the following procedure:

1 Local anaesthesia

your dentist may require local anaesthesia to numb you while the decay is removed and the

2 Tooth decay removal

your dentist will prepare your target tooth by cleaning it thoroughly to reveal the natural tooth shade. All the decayed parts will be removed as well, and your dentist will shape the space for the dental filling to fill in.

3 Etching

an acidic gel is applied to the target tooth before placing the filling.

4 Resin application

the dental filling is applied and a curing light is focused on the tooth to harden the filling.

4 Polishing

after the material has hardened, your dentist will evaluate it. There may be final polishing to ensure perfection.

Tooth sensitivity is normal after the procedure. This subsides as the tooth adjusts to the restoration. Your Caringbah Dental Care dentist will give you detailed after-care instructions.
