Fillings have been used in dentistry for over 100 years, and help provide structural support to a weakened tooth…
When a tooth is affected by decay and suffers from cavities as a result, fillings are generally used once the decay has been cleaned out in order to provide strength to the weakened tooth structure and prevent any further decay. At Teeth@Mittagong, we use ‘white fillings’ which are composed of composite resin material for a strong, durable and virtually invisible restoration!
The benefits of composite resin fillings…
Modern day composite resin fillings are beneficial for all our patients as they:
- Can be colour-matched to the exact shade of your tooth, rendering it nearly invisible
- Are bonded from the inside of your tooth, giving it extra structural support
- Do not require much removal of natural tooth structure in order to be placed
