Tooth structure may be lost following trauma or as a result of tooth decay. During your consultation with one of our dentists at Indigo Dental Practice, the integrity of your teeth will be considered. If there are cavities, your dentist may use X-rays to discover the source and extent of structure loss and will help you decide on the best option for restoration, which may include tooth fillings.
There are a wide variety of materials used in tooth filling today, including a variety of tooth coloured materials. Each has its own advantages. The type of tooth needing to be filled and its strength requirements can have an effect on the materials chosen. You will be fully informed on the choices available to you before a plan for your dental work is itemised. We offer sedation for our nervous patients. After the tooth filling procedure, your teeth may feel sensitive to cold air, sweet foods, temperature or pressure for a few days.
Dental fillings are used to repair damage to the structure of a tooth or teeth. Structural damage can be caused as a result of tooth decay, wear or trauma. After the removal of a problematic tooth structure, the tooth is restored with a filling material, most commonly composite resin (white filling material).
