What is a tooth filling?

Otherwise known as a dental filling, a tooth filling is a good way to restore a tooth that has been damaged by decay or by accidental damage. By closing off the spaces where bacteria may enter, tooth fillings act as a protectant for your teeth.

How does the treatment work?

When you visit our Wolli Creek dentist NSW for a tooth filling, Dr Tse will first prepare the tooth. Usually this means numbing around the tooth with a local anaesthetic. Once numb, any decay is removed from around the area and the tooth is washed.

Next, the mercury-free material is placed into the cavity and quickly shaped to match the contours of your bite. Once shaped, certain types of fillings may be quickly hardened using a special light, while others harden naturally.

The whole process takes around 20 minutes and is usually pain free!

When do I need dental filling?

Often patients are surprised when they find out they need a dental filling. The problem is that small holes in the teeth aren’t normally visible or painful and for this reason they’re difficult to spot.

However, in some instances you may feel teeth twinges when you eat or drink something cold or hot, or you may experience a niggling toothache. Often, in these cases you may need a dental filling. Don’t worry because as an early treatment for tooth decay, a dental filling is extremely common.

Composite tooth fillings vs amalgam (mercury) dental fillings

If you’re concerned about the aesthetic look of amalgam fillings we have the answer. Composite white fillings! Composite dental fillings are an aesthetically seamless way to repair teeth. What’s more, as a cosmetic treatment, our Wolli creek dental services extend to replacing any silver amalgam fillings with composite white varieties for the perfect flawless smile.

So how long does a filling last?

Typically, they usually last for between 10 to 15 years when you chew normally. Although if they’re placed in larger cavities and are exposed to greater bite pressure, then longevity may be less. If you have any questions, do feel free to ask our experienced Wolli Creek dentist in NSW who will be happy to explain.
