We understand the importance of a healthy and radiant smile. Our dental fillings services are designed to address a variety of dental concerns, ensuring that your teeth not only look great but also function at their best.

What are dental fillings?

Dental fillings are restorative materials used to repair and restore teeth that have been affected by decay or damage. They play a crucial role in preventing further deterioration of the tooth structure and maintaining optimal oral health.

Uses of dental fillings

Treatment of cavities: Dental fillings are commonly used to treat cavities caused by tooth decay. The decayed portion of the tooth is removed, and the filling material is applied to restore its structure.

Repair of fractured or damaged teeth: Fillings are also used to repair teeth that have been chipped, cracked, or otherwise damaged due to trauma or wear.

Tooth preservation: By filling cavities and restoring damaged teeth, dental fillings contribute to the preservation of natural tooth structure, preventing the need for more extensive procedures.

Types of dental fillings

Amalgam fillings: Made from a mixture of metals, including silver, tin, copper, and mercury, amalgam fillings are known for their durability and strength, making them suitable for restoring teeth in areas with heavy chewing forces.

Composite fillings: Composed of a tooth-coloured resin material, composite fillings blend seamlessly with natural teeth, providing a more aesthetically pleasing result. They are an excellent choice for visible teeth and offer a conservative approach as they require less removal of healthy tooth structure.

Ceramic (Porcelain) fillings: Ceramic fillings are crafted to match the colour and translucency of natural teeth. They are highly resistant to staining and offer a durable and natural-looking restoration.

Inlays, Onlays and Overlays

Inlays are fillings that fit within the cusps (the raised points) of a tooth. They are used when the damage or decay is confined to the chewing surface of the tooth.

Onlays cover one or more cusps of a tooth and are suitable for more extensive damage or decay that extends to the outer surface.

Overlays are similar to onlays, overlays cover the entire chewing surface of a tooth, providing comprehensive restoration for larger areas of damage or decay.
