Dental Fillings

We all love a sweet treat. But, unfortunately, they don’t come without a price.

Teeth are often covered with a very thin layer of bugs, called dental plaque. These bugs take the sugary things we eat and use them to decay our teeth. This is the cause of most ‘toothaches’ we get. 

Left unchecked, this decay progresses until a hole develops in your tooth. These holes may be clearly visible to the naked eye, or may need to be visualised with an x-ray. But without any treatment, they can progress deep in your tooth and cause a whole pile of problems—pain, infections etc.

A dental filling is just that…a filling in your tooth. The aim is fill the hole in your tooth created by the bugs. A bit of freezing solution is administered to make it pain free, the decay is removed by the dentist, and the remaining hole is filled with a material that looks and feels like a natural tooth.

Ever see folks with silver in their teeth? That’s an old-school filling material known as amalgam. Safety concerns aside (most stemming from the fact that amalgam contains some mercury—although most concerns are not backed up by research), silver fillings require a larger amount of natural tooth substance to be removed when the decay is removed, and they (frankly) don’t look as nice as white ones.

For the above, and several other, reasons, we use only tooth-coloured materials for dental fillings. Most white fillings are made of composite resin. It is a soft, putty-like material that hardens when exposed to blue light. It adheres to your tooth and allows the dentist to fill your tooth so that it looks and feels like new. 

Our dentists will advise you on the need for any dental fillings.
