What are Dental Fillings?

Dental fillings are a key treatment for repairing teeth affected by cavities or minor fractures. These restorative materials are chosen to match your teeth's natural colour, ensuring an aesthetic and seamless appearance.

The process involves removing the decay, cleaning the area, and filling the cavity, which is crucial in halting further decay and maintaining tooth integrity.

Fillings not only restore the tooth's structure but also prevent future dental issues. Dental fillings are essential for preserving oral health and the longevity of your natural teeth.

Teeth fillings are an effective way to restore damaged or decaying teeth and improve oral health.

How Do Teeth Fillings Work?

Here is a step-by-step guide on what you can expect when having your teeth fillings done:

Step 1: Dental Consultation - Our dental team will carefully assess your oral health and determine the need for fillings. This may include X-rays to evaluate the extent of tooth decay or damage.

Step 2: Cavity Preparation - If a filling is needed, the dentist will gently remove the decayed or damaged part of the tooth and prepare the cavity for the filling.

Step 3: Filling Placement - The chosen filling material is then carefully placed into the cavity. We use materials such as composite resin, which are durable and aesthetically pleasing.

Step 4: Shaping and Polishing - The filling is then shaped to match the contours of your tooth and polished to ensure a smooth and natural appearance.

The entire process is usually completed in one visit by our skilful dentists, allowing you to return to your daily activities immediately.

Regular dental check-ups are important to monitor the condition of your fillings and overall oral health.

Types of Dental Fillings: Amalgam vs Composite

Amalgam Fillings:
Amalgam fillings, often referred to as silver fillings, are a traditional type of dental filling that has been used for over a century. They are made from a mixture of metals including silver, mercury, tin, and copper. Amalgam is known for its durability and strength, making it an excellent choice for filling cavities in the back teeth where the chewing force is greatest. However, due to their metallic colour, amalgam fillings are more noticeable than other types of fillings and are not typically used in highly visible areas.

Composite Fillings:
Composite fillings, on the other hand, are made from a tooth-coloured resin material that blends seamlessly with the natural colour of your teeth. They are an increasingly popular choice due to their aesthetic appeal. Composite fillings bond directly to the tooth, which can help to support the remaining tooth structure. While they are strong and durable, they may not be as long-lasting as amalgam fillings, especially in areas where the chewing force is high.

Changing Black Fillings

Black fillings, typically made of amalgam, can be a concern for several reasons:

  • Aesthetics: Black fillings are more noticeable and can detract from a natural-looking smile. Replacing them with tooth-coloured fillings can significantly improve the appearance of your teeth.
  • Structural Integrity: Over time, amalgam fillings can expand and contract, potentially causing cracks in the tooth. Replacing them with more stable materials can help preserve the tooth's structure.
  • Health Concerns: Some people have concerns about the mercury content in amalgam fillings. While the ADA and other health organisations consider amalgam safe, many prefer to replace them with mercury-free alternatives for peace of mind.

By replacing black fillings with other alternatives, you benefit from long-term structural integrity and peace of mind regarding improved oral health.

Dental Filling vs Dental Crown

When it comes to restoring your smile, understanding the distinctions between dental fillings and dental crowns is crucial. A dental crown becomes essential in various scenarios:

  • Extensive Decay: If a tooth has a cavity that is too large for a filling, a crown may be needed to adequately restore the tooth.
  • Cracked or Broken Tooth: If a tooth is cracked or broken, a filling may not provide enough structural support. A crown can effectively hold the tooth together and prevent further damage.
  • After Root Canal Therapy: Teeth that have undergone root canal therapy often need a crown to protect the weakened tooth from fracture.
  • Worn-Down Teeth: Teeth that are severely worn down from grinding or other reasons may require crowns to restore their shape and function.

In each of these cases, a crown provides a more comprehensive solution by covering and protecting the entire tooth, whereas a filling only addresses a smaller, localised area of decay or damage.
