A dental restoration or a dental filling is a way to restore a tooth damaged by decay back to its normal function and shape.
Composite fillings are matched to be the same colour as patient teeth.
At The Cullen Dental Practice we use the most durable quartz-filled resins with incremental bonding techniques using Plasma Arc lights and fibre optic technology.
As with all aspects of dentistry, their placement is ‘technique sensitive’ and our preference is to use the highest quality bonding agents to achieve maximum adhesion to the original tooth substance.
There are always new materials and techniques being developed to help us to achieve the ultimate smile.
To restore a tooth to good form and function is a two step process:
By closing off spaces through which bacteria can enter, a dental filling also helps prevent further decay.
For teeth that are cracked, broken or have large cavities, a crown, or cap, may be recommended.
If the decay has reached a tooth nerve – it may be treated in two ways: through a root canal treatment (damaged nerve being removed) or through a procedure called pulp capping – an attempt to keep the tooth nerve alive.
To make the most accurate and efficient diagnosis of your dental condition, during your first check-up our dentist will carry out a thorough examination of your mouth, teeth and gums.
With the latest intra-oral cameras we can allow you to see your teeth and mouth on television monitors, so everything can easily be explained.
We also use laser assisted diagnostics that detects cavities early on enabling us to provide treatment before your tooth is at risk of more extensive treatment.
Our aim at The Cullen Dental Practice is to provide the very best treatment and advice for our patients.
We offer a comprehensive service for patients who require routine fillings as well as tooth coloured fillings. Please contact us for a no obligation assessment.
