Restorations (Fillings)

  • Replace old silver amalgam fillings
  • Simple cosmetic repair
  • White fillings

Do you have sensitivity to hot and cold? Do you have pain on chewing or find half your dinner in your tooth? Does it hurt to eat sweet things? You may require a filling.

A filling helps to restore a tooth damaged by decay back to its original function and shape this can help prevent further decay by eliminating areas where bacteria can enter the tooth. Your dentist will consider a variety of factors when choosing which type of filling material is best for you.

Restorative Dentistry

At Doucas Dental we like to provide our patients with pain free treatment to minimise the discomfort associated with getting a filling, your dentist will administer local anaesthetic to numb the area. Your dentist will then remove decay from the tooth and place a white bonded filling inside the tooth (we do not use amalgam fillings/silver in our practice anymore).

Some patients may experience side effects following a filling. The tooth may be sensitive to pressure but should subside one to two days following the procedure. If it does not settle down please contact our friendly team to make an appointment.

Removal of Amalgam fillings

Silver Amalgam fillings where in the past used regularly in dentistry, over the recent years patients have not liked having the dark filling material placed in their mouth and have opted for the white option for cosmetic reasons.

Another reason why amalgam fillings are no longer used in our practice is that over time they can create micro cracks in your teeth leading to parts of your tooth breaking away from the filling and requiring either patch ups, a larger filling or in more severe cases a crown to ensure the micro cracks don’t continue through the tooth and cause bigger issues.

If you have broken your filling or you would like to remove your old amalgam filling, please call our Doucas Dental team today for an appointment or book online through our Health Engine link.
