A dental filling is a common treatment for teeth that are damaged by decay, known as cavities. Fillings help restore the tooth to its normal function and shape while preventing further decay. They can also be used to repair cracked or broken teeth and teeth that have been worn down from habits such as nail-biting or tooth grinding.
To safely treat a cavity, our Gordon dentists will remove the decayed portion of the tooth and then “fill” the area where the decayed material once lived. This procedure protects and restores your teeth so that you can leave our clinic comfortable with your smile!
There are different materials available for dental fillings, including silver and porcelain. Tooth-coloured fillings are made from a composite resin, they are known as tooth coloured because of their white colour which is used to match the colour of your teeth.
If you’re experiencing any kind of toothache or sensitivity or if a previous filling needs to be replaced, contact our Gordon clinic for a consultation so we can treat the issue as soon as possible. Call us on 02 9739 9666 or schedule an appointment online today.
While having a cavity causes pain and sensitivity in your mouth, getting a filling is painless for most people regardless of age. If you or your dependent are anxious or feel any sort of discomfort during your treatment, intravenous sedation options and happy gas are available to help you feel more at ease during the treatment.
