When dental decay has passed it’s initial phase and requires treatment your dentist will recommend a filling. Depending on the size and shape of your dental cavity, your dentist will assess and recommend a suitable filling material.
Silver, tin, mercury, and copper make up amalgam fillings (silver fillings). Compared to other options, they are more cost-effective and are highly durable.
Metal fillings are not always considered the most aesthetic option, especially if the tooth is in the front of the mouth. An excellent cosmetic and minimally invasive option is composite (white fillings), a tooth-coloured material with elements of glass and resin.
Using composite material allows your dentist to keep more of the natural tooth structure due to how it is bonded to the tooth structure. Composite fillings have greatly improved in strength in recent years, making them a very prevalent treatment.
As with all of our dental treatments, your comfort is very important to us. Most treatments are completed under local anaesthetic, and your dental team will regularly check your comfort levels for a positive experience.Back to General Dentistry
