Tooth decay is one of the most common diseases in the world. At Bendigo Smiles, we offer a range of direct and indirect tooth-coloured fillings to treat decayed teeth.
Tooth-coloured fillings are an excellent way to restore and protect teeth that are affected by decay, cracks, and fractures.
We make dental fillings look natural and aesthetic, so that they blend in seamlessly and are barely noticeable. They can be closely matched to your original teeth for a more natural look.
You can rest assured that your experience at Bendigo Smiles will be as painless as possible.
Top Benefits of Tooth Coloured Fillings
Your trusted Bendigo dentist will restore cavities and replace old unsightly metal filling with composite fillings, because they:
- Blend well with the natural shade of your teeth
- Don’t involve metal or mercury
- Remove less existing tooth structure
- Restore strength of teeth
Reasons for Placing Tooth Coloured Fillings
Tooth-coloured fillings are used to fix the following tooth problems:
- Cracked or broken teeth
- Worn teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Decayed teeth
- Small gaps between two teeth
Procedure of Dental Fillings
The dental filling procedure can be completed in one day. First, your dentist will prepare the tooth by removing the decay. The affected tooth will be thoroughly cleaned before the dentist places the filling. A special medication may be needed if the decay has developed near the nerve of the tooth.
Next, the dentist will precisely and properly place the filling into the tooth as well as shape and polish the filling. This process re-establishes the form and function of the tooth.
After the procedure, you may experience sensitivity to hot and cold foods, which is completely normal. The sensitivity will subside once the treated tooth acclimates to the treatment. Your Bendigo Smiles dentist will also provide home-care tips to maximise the life of your restoration. With healthy habits and a good oral hygiene routine, tooth fillings can last for many years.
