Dental Fillings Rebuild Your Damaged Teeth

We would recommend you have a dental filling if your tooth’s health or its appearance is compromised. This could be due to decay, cracks, sensitivity or the discolouration of teeth. At Kedron Family Dental in Brisbane, we use high quality white, resin based dental fillings that have great strength, bonding, wear and aesthetic properties for a natural and strong smile.

The Benefits of Dental Fillings

Dental fillings are a type of restorative dentistry treatment used to repair minimal tooth fractures, tooth decay or otherwise damaged surfaces of the teeth. Our dental filling materials at Kedron Family Dental include white composite resin, used to even out your tooth surfaces for better biting or chewing. This type of dental filling is discrete and will help you achieve a natural-looking smile.


What Happens Before, During and After a Dental Filling?

At Kedron Family Dental, our team are committed to making sure you feel happy and comfortable before, during, and after your procedure, and will happily answer any questions you may have. After an initial check-up at our Brisbane clinic, and if it is decided that you do need a filling and you’re happy to go ahead, one of our qualified dentists will begin the procedure by:

  • Preparing your tooth in order to restore the decay or damage. The decay or damage is carefully removed, and the area is cleansed to remove bacteria or debris before the restoration is completed.
  • After the cavity has been filled with a dental filling, your dentist will discuss steps you can take to prevent decay from forming under or around the filling, or in other teeth, and the best ways to care for your dental filling.

Please note: fillings will naturally wear over time through normal chewing habits and can be accelerated if you are grinding or clenching your teeth.

If you suspect that you may need a filling or would like find out more information, contact one of our staff members today on (07) 3357 9600.
