Dental Services – Fillings
Once a tooth has developed a cavity, fillings are used to replace the decayed section, restoring the tooth back to its normal function and shape. Cracked or broken teeth, and those worn down due to tooth-grinding and nail-biting can also be repaired with fillings.
By stopping bacteria from getting into those cavities and open spaces, fillings help prevent tooth decay from spreading further, aiding in your overall oral health.
Depending on the extent and location of the repair, cost and health sensitivities to certain materials, the right filling for you could be made from gold, porcelain, tooth-coloured composite resin, or an amalgam alloy of mercury, silver, copper, tin and sometimes zinc.
