At Brighten Dental we are expert in both fillings and restoration.
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.
