Fillings are more often required in the molar (back) teeth where decay rates are higher.

Regular dental health check-ups will make sure any problems are identified and treated early.

A healthy diet and regular brushing can also help to prevent the need for fillings in teeth.

The types of filling material used by your dentist may include:

  • Direct tooth coloured restorations
  • Composite resin
  • Glass Ionomer Cement
  • Indirect tooth coloured restorations
  • Ceramic Inlay and Onlay for larger restorations are more durable and better aesthetics

Modern dental amalgam is a strong, inexpensive material, which is used to repair teeth and safe for most people.

Other forms of tooth restoration, such as gold or ceramic crowns, or other alternative tooth-coloured filling materials may also be used.
