Our experienced dentists use state-of-the-art technology to keep your visits simple and efficient for you. It’s no different when you require a filling. We’ll use contemporary equipment and techniques to make sure that the process is easy and convenient.

Why Fillings are Needed

A dental filling addresses tooth decay. Once you have decay, there is no way to make it go away. Decay happens when the bacteria in your mouth feed on the acids in food. They produce a buildup on your teeth which will harden over time and can’t be removed with your toothbrush or by flossing. Eventually, the buildup will wear away the tooth, causing a small hole called a cavity.

The most effective way to address a cavity, as long as it has not progressed to require other measures, is to have a filling done.

Tooth-Coloured Fillings

In days past, the standard was to use a silver amalgam filling. Today, however, we use tooth-coloured materials that will blend in with your smile. There are many advantages to choosing our fillings Narrogin:

  • They don’t require as much of your existing tooth structure to be removed
  • The material won’t expand and contract with hot or cold as metal fillings do
  • Nobody will know it’s there
  • There is no mercury in these fillings

What to Expect When You Get a Filling

At your initial visit, we’ll assess your tooth and make sure that a filling is the proper way to address your problem.

We may also recommend inlays or onlays if the area of decay is large but does not require a dental crown.

The area of decay is taken away and the site disinfected and dried off. Then, we can apply and shape the filling material, which then must harden into place.

The filling is polished, and you and your dentist will make sure you’re satisfied.
