Dental Fillings at Artarmon Dentists

Woman with beautiful smile wearing yellow shirtDid you know that your tooth is the only tissue in your body that can’t heal itself? Teeth are exposed to wear and tear every day. Over the years, advancements in dentistry have allowed options to address problems in your teeth that occur. If you have pain, it may be due to a cavity in the tooth. Cavities are caused by tooth decay, which is a common oral health concern.

We typically use modern, white materials for our fillings. They are aesthetically pleasing, made to match your natural teeth. You’ll hardly be able to tell it’s there. There are a few options to choose from for your filling. Our dentists will be pleased to detail each one to you.

  • Composite Resin: Composite resin is colour-matched to your existing teeth. Placed in layers, each one is cured with a UV light to harden it as it bonds to your tooth. In the final step, your filling is sculpted to match the shape of your natural tooth anatomy. A composite filling is ideal in addressing small cavities or other aesthetic blemishes that can affect your teeth.
  • Porcelain Fillings: We offer some of the latest technology within dentistry. A 3D scan of your affected tooth can be taken with our special laser. Then, we can create a porcelain filling from it. Your filling is fitted in place with strong bonding materials. These fillings are durable and produce an aesthetically pleasing result.
