Dental Fillings

Young  woman with dark hair and beautiful smileThe team at Sunnybank Plaza Dental is gentle and caring, making your visits easy for you. We believe in providing dentistry without stress and minimising your discomfort so that you never need to feel apprehensive about your dental appointments.

If tooth decay has set in, it can be addressed with a filling. This simple procedure involves filling in the hole that has been created by the decay. Your filling can be made from many different materials. Primarily, we use composite resin or glass ionomer cement. We’ll assess your particular case and determine what is most suitable for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there pain involved in having a filling?

We take every possible measure to make sure that you stay comfortable during the filling procedure. A topical numbing gel is applied prior to the local anaesthetic. Once the local anaesthetic is placed, you shouldn’t feel anything while your treatment is completed.

Which filling material is right for me?

Though white-coloured fillings have become the standard material used in having a filling, there are certain situations in which other materials may be preferred. We’ll evaluate your particular needs and make our best recommendations to you, discussing all possible options so that you can decide what you would like to do.

I have tooth pain. Do I need a filling?

Tooth decay is one of several reasons that you might feel pain in and around a tooth. We can’t say for certain until you’ve been examined, which is why you should make an appointment straightaway if you suspect that you have a problem. By treating it without delay, we can make sure that you avoid more complex, costlier treatment further down the road.
