Dental Filling

Re-enforce & Repair Damaged Teeth with non-invasive Dental Fillings , Inlays or Overlays.

How dental fillings help?

A filling or a restoration as we like to call them, is generally the first line of repair when a tooth has been damaged by a small accident or some decay.  But rest assured, gone are the days of metal or silver fillings and bring on the tooth coloured almost  invisible restorations that are relatively quick , simple and inexpensive. 

 

What problems require Dental Fillings?

The most common problems that require dental fillings are cavities. However, the best way to accurately confirm if dental fillings are needed in a particular case would be to consult with a qualified dentist in person. The most common signs that indicate a persona might need a dental filling are inclusive of toothaches, sensitivity to certain temperatures, or to sweet food.

What to expect with my appointment?

Generally the appointment will take between 30-60 mins.

If you have a cavity caused by decay, we use local anaesthetic and then carefully remove the decayed area and seal the space with a durable composite tooth-coloured material. 

It is very important the area be kept clean and dry for the white composite filling material to stick and set correctly and we do everything to make this a simple procedure for you with no down time.

Fillings & Inlays FAQ's

A dental filling is a treatment to repair tooth damage. Harmful bacteria in the mouth can attack and eat away tooth enamel and leave small holes or cavities in their place. To repair these cavities, a dentist removes the corroded tooth tissue and squeezes in a “filling” to repair the damaged tooth.

The cost of getting a dental filling depends on the size of the cavity, the dentist’s professional fees, the patient’s insurance coverage, and the choice of material being used to fill it in. The materials that could be used in a dental filling include silver amalgam (which consists of mercury mixed with silver, copper, zinc, and tin), porcelain, gold, glass, or tooth-colored plastic.

In Brisbane, small fillings in a tooth may cost $90, a medium-sized filling in Brisbane could cost between $160 to $220 and a very large filling may cost anything close to $300.

If cavities stay untreated, they often grow larger and affect deeper layers of a person’s teeth. This could lead to a noticeable change in the appearance of the tooth, severe toothaches, infections, and even loss of the tooth. A dental filling thus repairs the damaged tooth and restores its appearance and function.

Dental fillings also prevent further deterioration of the tooth by supplying a barrier against harmful bacteria. Simply put, dental fillings increase the life of a tooth. The dental filling procedure is a simple one that can be completed in just a single visit to the dentist’s clinic.
