Despite your best efforts keeping your teeth healthy at home, you may still develop cavities. In this case, cavities need to be repaired and sealed with dental filling.
Your expert dentist at Comfort Dental Centre Buderim wants to preserve the health and appearance of your teeth by only using composite fillings.
Composite fillings are tooth-coloured fillings that are widely used in the field of modern dentistry. Since they are tooth-coloured, they can be closely matched to the colour of existing teeth and are more aesthetically suitable for use in front teeth or other teeth that are easily visible.
Top Advantages of Tooth Coloured Fillings
We restore cavities and replace old silver amalgam fillings with white fillings for the following reasons:
- Good blend with the natural colour of your teeth
- No metal or mercury involved
- Less removal of the existing tooth structure
- Restored strength of teeth
Reasons for Placing Tooth-coloured fillings
- Chipped teeth
- Cracked or broken teeth
- Worn teeth
- Decayed teeth
- Close space between two teeth
How Are Tooth-coloured Fillings placed?
Your Comfort Dental Centre Buderim dentist will prepare the tooth by removing the decay. The dentist will then thoroughly clean the affected area before placing the filling. In case the decay was near the nerve of the tooth, the dentist will apply a special medication for additional protection.
The dentist will precisely place, shape, and polish the filling. This re-establishes the form and function of your tooth.
If you experience sensitivity to hot or cold foods, don’t panic. This is normal immediately after placing the filling. Sensitivity will subside as your tooth acclimates to the restoration. Your dentist at Comfort Dental Care will provide you with detailed home-care instructions at the end of your treatment.
