Fillings at Parramatta Dental Clinic
Despite practicing strict oral hygiene habits, it’s still possible to get a cavity. When that happens, you need a filling. Dental fillings fix and restore the surface of a tooth that has been damaged by decay, fracture or wear. If tooth decay is not addressed at its early stages, it will get worse.
We Prefer White Filling Materials
Some tooth fillings today are still made from metals such as mercury, which protects the damaged tooth but doesn’t bond with the tooth and can be prone to problems.
Thanks to advances in dental technology, Parramatta Dental Clinic avoids using amalgam fillings.
We use tooth coloured materials that do bond with your tooth, providing stronger, more comfortable and durable fillings.
Which to Choose?
Composite fillings have some advantages over silver ones.
Composite fillings are more aesthetically appealing, plus they are affordable and can fortify a tooth that is weakened due to decay.
What Does Getting a Filling Involve?
Getting a filling is a straightforward procedure. Please allow about an hour at our office. Your dentist will take X-rays if needed, discuss the procedure, and then complete the dental work.
Before your cavity is filled, your dentist will numb your teeth and gums to minimise any discomfort during the procedure. Next, your dentist will use a drill to remove the decay in the tooth and replace it with a filling.
