Are you experiencing discomfort or sensitivity in your teeth? Fillings play a crucial role in treating cavities, preventing further damage, and restoring the health of your teeth.

Understanding Fillings and Their Purpose

At Tuncurry Dental Practice, fillings are used to address various dental concerns, including:

  • Tooth sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures
  • Teeth with holes or dark spots
  • Cracked, chipped, or fractured teeth

Our experienced team utilises specialised equipment to remove decay, ensuring a clear area before proceeding with the filling procedure. For your comfort, a local anaesthetic is provided when necessary.

Benefits of Fillings

Following decay removal, our dentists prepare the space for the filling, shaping it accordingly to ensure its placement. Depending on the type of filling, a base or liner may be inserted to protect the tooth’s pulp and nerves.

The benefits of fillings at Tuncurry Dental Practice include:

  • Limiting damage caused by dental cavities
  • Preventing further damage to the remaining tooth structure
  • Restoring tooth function
  • Preventing nerve damage and tooth loss
  • Eliminating bacteria to ensure fresh breath
