Dental Fillings in South Brisbane – Restorative Dentistry at CP Dental
When a tooth is broken or starts to show signs of decay, it’s important to stop it from developing further and causing more damage. Dental fillings in South Brisbane are used to restore your teeth back to health and help prevent any further, more serious issues.
What Kind of Dental Fillings Are Available?
There are two basic types of fillings that can be used to repair a damaged tooth:
- A Direct filling – these are applied directly to the tooth in just one appointment at our dental practice. They include composite resin and glass and resin ionomers.
- An Indirect filling – these usually involve one or more visits to our dental practice as they’re custom made to your needs in the dental laboratory. They include inlays which sit inside the damaged area and onlays which cover the cusp of the tooth.
At CP Dental in Brisbane, we know that many of our patients would prefer a natural-looking restoration – that’s why we’re proud to offer white tooth fillings in Mater Hill, Emerald and Coopers Plains. Using the latest restorative techniques and modern composite resin materials that blend seamlessly with your existing tooth colour, we’ll restore your smile back to health while keeping it aesthetically pleasing.
Which Filling is Right for Me?
There are a number of things to take into consideration when choosing the best restorative option for your mouth that can affect the longevity, durability and performance of a tooth filling such as:
- The location and extent of the decay
- The amount of tooth structure remaining
- The chewing force that the tooth will have to withstand
- Any habits such as teeth grinding or nail biting
When you come for your routine check-up at CP Dental in Brisbane or Emerald, we take a careful look at the surface of your teeth to check for any early signs of decay, fractures or cracks. If we spot anything that might need treating, we’ll let you know.
