Dental Fillings

Tooth decay and cavities are a common occurrence and can become very uncomfortable, especially while eating.  Left unchecked, a cavity can also cause a tooth to become so damaged that it needs to be removed completely.

If your dentist suspects a cavity has formed, a digital dental X-ray may be requested to inspect the extent of the damage. Once the assessment is complete, a local anaesthetic may be applied to numb the area before the procedure beings. The damaged area of tooth will then be removed and replaced using a tooth coloured composite resin, which hardens almost instantly, bonding directly to your existing tooth enamel.

After a dental filling procedure, your tooth will be restored and you can eat or drink almost immediately. A dental filling is a simple and straightforward procedure that is typically completely painless.  Having a cavity repaired is essential to protecting the rest of the affected tooth and for your overall oral health.
