If your teeth have been damaged by decay, dental fillings are designed to fill in the cavities to mend your teeth.

Fillings can restore the shape and appearance of your teeth and also repair their function to allow you to enjoy your food. While you cannot determine if you require any fillings, regular visits with your dentist can spot early signs of decay to treat and prevent any further damage to your oral health.

What’s the procedure of having dental fillings?

A local anaesthetic can be administered before the treatment to relieve any possible discomfort. To prepare your affected tooth for the filling, your dentist will first remove the decayed part and clean the tooth. Your dentist will then close the cavity with a filling to stop the bacteria from getting in and prevent future damage.

What type of filling do you need?

There are different materials from which dental fillings can be made, such as gold, amalgam, composite resin and porcelain. Your dentist will discuss your options and together, we will determine what suits you the best.

What happens after having fillings?

After the treatment, you may experience some discomfort which will lessen and fade. If necessary, you may want to have some over-the-counter pain relief. With proper oral care, dental fillings can last for years, and you may have them replaced once they wear out.
