Dental fillings are used when teeth have become decayed, fractured, or chipped. Based in the Burnside, our skilled dentists work to replace lost tooth enamel and restore the anatomy, function, and appearance of your teeth.
The fillings we provide may be composed of dental amalgam. This alloy is designed to provide strong fillings suitable for back teeth. Fillings may also be produced using tooth-coloured composite materials to provide a more natural-looking restoration. Your dentist will recommend the type of filling material used depending on the circumstance.
From effective fillings to first-rate crowns and bridges, Burnside Dental Care works to offer patients a number of choices. As an alternative to fillings, our practice also provides inlays and onlays.
Dental inlays and onlays are similar to fillings, but are usually reserved for more extensively broken down teeth. They are also used when a crown is not suitable. Inlays and onlays are fabricated in a laboratory before being cemented into the tooth. This provides a longer-lasting solution. To produce an accurate restoration, we’ll require an impression of your tooth. The precision afforded by taking an impression will ensure your tooth is protected against further breakdown.
