A filling is a restorative dental procedure that effectively restores a decayed tooth back to its normal shape and functionality.
During a filling procedure, the dentist will remove the decayed surfaces and clean out all the affected areas. Afterwards, it will be closed off and sealed with a filling material to prevent bacteria entering into any spaces.
At Clemton Park Dental, we use metal free fillings, all fillings are tooth coloured and would match the same colour as your teeth.
It is important to note that if a cavity is left untreated, it may heighten sensitivity and cause more constant ache and damage in the near future where it would require extensive treatment. Dental decay is the one of the two most common diseases affecting the teeth. Fillings are material used to restore the function and anatomy of the teeth after the decay has been removed.
Early Intervention is vital to prevent a small problem into enhancing into a bigger one!
