Fillings are used to fill cavities in teeth that are generally caused by decay or damage.

Dental Fillings are made of resin or grey metal amalgam.  Your dentist will use a local anaesthetic to numb the area around the damaged tooth.

Once the decay or damaged parts of the tooth have been thoroughly cleaned out and disinfected, the filling material chosen is used to fill the cavity.

The dentist will then check your bite and polish the surface to remove any rough spots or edges.

Fillings are a long-lasting and effective way to restore damaged teeth, preventing further damage and relieving tooth pain and sensitivity.

You may need a filling to treat a cavity if you are experiencing the following symptoms:

  • Sensitive teeth
  • Food trapping
  • Toothache
  • Discolouration on the tooth
  • Pain when biting
  • Tooth fracture

Your dentist will advise you on the treatment that is right for you, which may involve a filling.
