DENTAL FILLING MELBOURNE

We are passionate about keeping the oral health of our valued patients at an optional level. We provide dental fillings to the highest possible standard at our Melbourne dental clinic.

Visiting your dentist on a semi-regular basis is critical for minimising your risk of tooth decay and cavities. However, if these do occur, fillings can be used to treat them and prevent any further damage from occurring.

Our team at Gorgeous Smiles can provide you with our filling services to help you maintain a good level of oral health.

Dental filling process

The tooth filling process by your dentist proceeds as:

  • A numbing gel is applied to the gums by the dentist. They then inject a topical anaesthetic into the gum.
  • The dentist removes the decaying part of the tooth with a drill or similar specialised equipment.
  • The hole in the tooth is subsequently filled.
  • Finally, the filling is polished and may be adjusted so that the person's bite feels normal.

DENTAL FILLING

We are passionate about keeping the oral health of our valued patients at an optional level. Therefore, we provide dental fillings to the highest possible standard at our Melbourne dental clinic.

Visiting your dentist on a semi-regular basis is critical for minimising your risk of tooth decay and cavities.

However, if these do occur, fillings can be used to treat them and prevent any further damage from occurring.

Which dental filling is best?

Composite fillings are appealing because they may be customised to match the colour of your teeth. On the other hand, composite fillings are more expensive and less durable than silver amalgam fillings.

Ceramic fillings, on the other hand, are constructed of porcelain. As a result, they are an aesthetically beautiful and long-lasting solution.

Our team at Gorgeous Smiles can provide you with our filling services to help you maintain a good level of oral health.

How long do dental fillings last?

A metal filling should last about 15 years before being redone. Still, the length of time can vary based on several factors, such as grinding or clinging your teeth.

Tooth-coloured fillings are made from a mixture of fine glass and plastic particles.

 

Why can't I just leave the cavity be and not treat it?

If there is decay on/in the tooth, a restricted infection can spread. Therefore, the sooner you get rid of the decay, the better.

Over the age of 35, at least 20% of adults fight gum disease. Which means fighting infection every day.

However, tooth decay can eventually reach the nerve and spread throughout the whole body if untreated.

So it is better to get a tooth filling soon as possible.

Dental Filling Cost

The tooth filling cost at Gorgeous Smiles Dental Clinic can be $135-$400. depending on the complexity of the decay.

Always remember, you can put the whole treatment on an interest-free finance plan.

Porcelain fillings would usually cost more, depending on the size. Because they work more and are more expensive. 

Still, they also last almost double the time regular fillings would.

How can I know if I need a Filling?

Your dentist will identify if you need any fillings during your dental examination due to cavities or decay sites in your teeth.

Types of Dental Fillings

Dental filling materials

The materials are typically utilised to conceal a decayed hole. They are as follows:

Fillings made of ceramic

They are made of porcelain. Making fillings both sturdy and aesthetically pleasing. The cost of ceramic fillings is higher than that of composite resin fillings.
But they are tooth-coloured and resist stains and abrasion better. The ceramic filling has the disadvantage of being more brittle than composite.

So it must be utilised on big cavities to avoid breakage. But, on the other hand, the dentist can widen the region to accommodate the extra bulk.

Fillings made of composite materials

Plastic and resin are used to make composite fillings. It's inserted into the tooth while still soft, then hardened with an intense curing light. It's a popular option for cheap dental fillings.

It may be customised to fit the colour of the patient's natural teeth. For example, making it less noticeable than a silver amalgam filling. In addition, composite fillings do not last as long as other varieties. However, they can last for five to ten years before being replaced.

Fillings made of silver amalgam

This is a widely used filler. Silver amalgam fillings are made up of various minerals. Including tin, zinc, copper, and mercury, in addition to silver. It is durable, long-lasting, and less expensive than other options.

As a result, it is a well-liked option. For example, a silver amalgam filling can last 12 years if properly cared for. Furthermore, because it is malleable, dentists find it simple to utilise.

The main downside is that it is unsightly; thus, it is not ideal for a conspicuous tooth. Temperature variations can also cause the material to compress and expand, causing the tooth to crack.

In addition, the changes may cause a space between the filling and the tooth. Allowing food and germs to enter and build new cavities. Despite the issue surrounding mercury in silver amalgam fillings, the substance has been approved for usage.

Fillings made of glass ionomer

Glass and acrylic are used to make this filler. These filings are typically utilised on children's teeth that are still developing. Fluoride is released into the tooth to prevent it from further deterioration.

However, acrylic is weaker than composite resin. As a result, they only have a year's lifespan before cracking or wearing out. Furthermore, a standard glass ionomer does not have the same natural appearance as composite resin.

The bottom line You should see a dentist for dental restoration if you have tooth decay. The dentist will recommend the optimum filling for restoring the tooth to its natural state.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
What filling materials do we use at Gorgeous Smiles?

For the dental filling, our material is white or silver porcelain. In large cavities, it is advisable to use Porcelain fillings to increase the lifelong of the filling. Our Porcelain fillings are made in-house, during a one-hour appointment, so you do not have to return several times.

How much does Root Canal Treatment cost?

The cost of filler at Gorgeous Smiles Dental Clinic can be &135-$400, depending on the complexity of the decay. Always remember you can put the whole treatment on an interest-free finance plan.
Depending on the size, porcelain fillers usually cost more because They require more labour and more expensive materials. Still, their service life is almost twice that of regular fillers.

How painful is a dental filling?
You are unlikely to feel anything during a filling. Because a filling does not occur in nerve-rich parts of the tooth, you should experience no more discomfort than you would if you cut your hair. There are no nerves. Hence there is no pain.
