Tooth Fillings Sandstone Point Patients Prefer

It can be upsetting to be told that you need a tooth filling but don’t worry, we only use ‘invisible’ white tooth fillings at Sandstone Point Dental, so your secret is safe with us.

At Sandstone Point Dental, we want to treat our patients as we like to be treated, which is why we only use white fillings. Not only are they more aesthetically pleasing, but they also require less tooth structure to be removed than amalgam fillings and it’s generally a more comfortable procedure to undergo.

Our caring dental team take the time and trouble to blend every filling in with your natural teeth for a seamless finish. Furthermore, white dental fillings enable our Sandstone Point dentists to do far more than fill cavities. They can also use white fillings to repair chipped or damaged teeth, close gaps between the teeth, and replace unsightly amalgam fillings.

What are white tooth fillings exactly?

White tooth fillings are also known as composite fillings and are made from a mixture of resin and tiny glass particles. By utilising a bonding technique, they are more versatile than the old-style amalgam fillings – and free from mercury.

What’s the procedure?

Our dentist will first numb the area with a local anaesthetic. Once you’re sitting comfortably, any decay will be removed from the affected tooth. The site is then cleaned and dried. To help the filling bond, the surface of the tooth is lightly etched and brushed with a gel and bonding solution.

Once the composite material has been prepared, it’s placed into the cavity or area to be filled, moulded to restore the contours of your tooth, and then hardened with a special blue light.

Finally, our dentist checks your bite and polishes the filling. Most tooth fillings will have set by the time you leave our clinic, so once you arrive home, you can eat, drink, brush and floss as normal.

The use of modern materials enables us to combine dental health with artistry and patients are always delighted with the lifelike natural appearance of their restored teeth.

If you need tooth fillings in Sandstone Point or would like to replace unsightly amalgam fillings, then why not book an appointment with the team at Sandstone Point Dental. We’re friendly and caring and will make you feel at ease from the moment you walk through the door. Give us a call to make an appointment on (07) 5429 5628 and we’ll show you just what we can do.
