Restore, Protect and Shine: Blacktown Dental Group’s Fillings for a Healthier Smile

Dental fillings are basically a way to treat cavities in your teeth. When you have a cavity, it means that there’s a little hole or damage in your tooth caused by decay. Getting a dental filling involves removing the decayed part of the tooth and filling it with a material like composite resin or amalgam. It helps restore the shape, function, and strength of your tooth while preventing further damage. 

And if you’re looking for quality dental fillings, you should definitely check out Blacktown Dental Group – we have got your back!

When Do You Need Dental Fillings? 

If a dentist finds a cavity in your tooth, that’s when dental fillings come into play. When a tooth gets decayed or damaged due to factors like poor oral hygiene or munching on too many sugary treats (we’ve all been there), your dentist will remove the decayed part and fill it up with a special material called dental fillings. These fillings will help restore the tooth’s shape, prevent further decay, and make sure you can chew without any pain.

Types of Dental Fillings Available

If you’re curious about dental fillings in Blacktown, we have got you covered. There are a few common types you should know about.

  • First off, we have amalgam fillings, which are made of a mix of metals and have been used for ages.
  • Then there are composite fillings, which blend in with your natural tooth colour and look pretty snazzy.
  • Ceramic and gold fillings are also options, but they tend to be more expensive.

If you want to dive deeper into the world of dental fillings, don’t hesitate to reach out to the talented dentists at Blacktown Dental Group. They’ll be happy to chat with you!

White Dental Fillings

Even when you eat right, drink a lot of water and brush your teeth daily, there’s still a chance for tooth decay to sneak up on you unexpectedly. Thanks to regular exams and modifying your oral hygiene plan, you can lower your risk of getting cavities. But when you do, rest assured that we use the least-invasive and most aesthetic materials available for your new dental filling.

Composite (White) Fillings

When you have a cavity, it spreads through your tooth enamel into deeper layers of your teeth or to adjacent ones. By removing it and placing a composite filling, we can repair the area that’s been damaged and stop it from expanding.

Tooth-coloured composite fillings offer many advantages over conventional metal restorations, including:

  • Being mercury free
  • Blending in with your smile’s natural colour
  • Less invasive to your tooth structure
  • Bonding capabilities that allow the material to be placed in more areas
  • Ideal for people of all ages

Inlay and Onlay

If your cavity is quite large, a traditional filling won’t withstand the everyday use of biting and chewing. Because inlays and onlays are larger than a filling but smaller than a dental crown, they’re ideal for repairing teeth with moderate to severe decay.

Keeping You Comfortable

Getting your first filling can make some people feel a bit anxious. Fortunately, we offer NITROUS OXIDE sedation to help you feel at ease. We’ll thoroughly numb your tooth prior to removing the cavity, so you can sit back and relax.

Dental fillings are essential for several reasons:

  • Preservation of Tooth Structure: Fillings prevent the spread of decay and help preserve the healthy tooth structure.
  • Restoration of Functionality: Fillings restore the tooth’s ability to function properly, including chewing and biting.
  • Prevention of Further Damage: Left untreated, cavities can worsen, leading to more extensive dental procedures such as root canals or extractions.
  • Aesthetic Improvement: Tooth-coloured fillings enhance the appearance of your smile, especially when used on visible teeth.
