Dental Fillings in Perth

What is a Dental Filling?

When your tooth has a cavity, an area of decay, is cracked or otherwise damaged, you may require a filling. Dental Fillings may protect the weakened area of the tooth from further decay and damage and in some circumstances may even strengthen the tooth.

A dental filling is usually simple and is the earliest treatment for tooth decay. Dental fillings are a pain-free procedure and if necessary our dentist will numb the area using general anaesthesia to ensure you are comfortable throughout.

After a dental filling, your treated tooth may be sensitive to bite on, if you eat something sweet and to hot and cold temperatures. If this persists, come back to see your dentist at Bayview Dental.

What are the reasons to get Dental Fillings?

  • Cracked or broken teeth
  • Decayed teeth

What are types of Dental Fillings Available?

Dental fillings are chosen for their strength durability and aesthetics. They can be made from the following materials.

  • Amalgam
  • Porcelain
  • Composite resin

White fillings provide more of a natural match for the tooth and are often used for this reason alone. They bond chemically to the tooth, so little healthy tooth structure is removed during the filling process. In fact, it often strengthens the tooth. White fillings can be porcelain, composite resin or glass ionomer, however amalgam fillings are silver.

How long will a Dental Filling last?

As with most dental restorations, dental fillings are not permanent and will some-day need to be replaced. However, they are very durable and will last many years provided you perform good oral hygiene practices and how well you take care of them.
