Tooth Fillings

Resolve Your Tooth Decay with Our Quality Dental Fillings

Care Dental Camberwell proudly provides quality tooth-coloured filling treatments to patients in need of lasting solutions to cavities and tooth decay.

Leaving tooth decay untreated can quickly result in severe damage to your teeth and a significant deterioration of your oral health. However, thanks to our reliable restorative dental treatments, patients can prevent this from happening.

What Is a Tooth Filling?

Tooth fillings are a type of restorative dental treatment we use to fill and seal cavities. They are an effective tool for making decayed teeth stronger. Additionally, since we only use dental filling materials that consist of white composite resin, our fillings blend perfectly with your teeth’s natural colour. We also have safe and specific protocols for removing damaged amalgam fillings, providing rubber dams and oxygen masks if requested.

Additionally, we also offer porcelain inlays and onlays, which are durable, excellent biocompatilable materials. Our cutting-edge CEREC technology allows us to recate these amazing porcelain fillings as same-day treatments. Contact Care Dental Camberwell for quality tooth filling treatments.

Our Composite Tooth Filling Procedure

The tooth filling procedure begins with an assessment of your condition and thorough cleaning of the cavity. This stage also involves removing bacteria inside the tooth and disinfecting the tooth to stop the infection.

After, we will sculpt BPA-free composite resin filling material into the cavity. Our dentists will then use a special light to make the material set. Finally, we will polish and shape the filling, ensuring it fits your tooth and bite perfectly. Though some patients report experiencing mild discomfort and sensitivity immediately after the procedure, you’ll be back to enjoying your teeth’s full function in no time.

Tooth filling treatments are one of the cheapest and most effective dental restorative procedures, helping patients restore the structure of their damaged teeth.
