Almost every adult in Australia has developed a cavity at some point in their life. Dental fillings are one of the best solutions for repairing cavities and restoring your teeth’s original structure and stability. At EDentist Bentleigh East, we carefully craft our tooth-coloured fillings with precision, offering patient-focused dental care to restore your oral health.
In just one appointment, our team can clean the tooth, fill the cavity with composite filling material, and seal it to repair the cavity and prevent further decay or tooth loss.
Fillings are artificial restoration tools we use to fill in the holes in the enamel of a decayed tooth. A filling restores the tooth structure, shape, and stability, preventing further damage and restoring tooth function. Patients can also use dental fillings to restore worn-out teeth or repair teeth with chipped enamel.
Fillings come in a wide range of materials, from gold and dental amalgam to porcelain and composite resin. At EDentist, we specialise in composite fillings, offering patients restorations that match the colour of their natural tooth enamel.
Cavities result from a build-up of bacteria that feed on the sugar in the food you eat. As the bacteria digest these sugars, they create chemical reactions that leave holes in your teeth. Neglecting these holes can lead to tooth decay and, in extreme cases, tooth loss. Some patients might even experience severe bursts of tooth pain.
Fortunately, dental fillings can help you repair the damage that cavities and tooth decay causes. Fillings can help you restore your tooth’s strength, shape, and colour, significantly limiting the spread of your cavities.
At EDentist, we dedicate our expertise and experience to providing excellent dental care. Our fillings procedure begins with a thorough examination of your teeth. Sometimes, this examination might require x-rays for better imaging, which helps us determine the degree of decay. Afterwards, we will clean the cavity and apply filling material to the affected tooth. Finally, we will use a special UV light to harden the material before shaping the filling to ensure it matches your tooth’s structure and feels comfortable when you bite down.
Don’t let cavities impact your oral health and overall quality of life. Get in touch with us today to schedule your consultation and learn more about the dental fillings we offer. Our friendly team is always ready to help.
