At Booval Dental, we understand that maintaining a healthy, vibrant smile is crucial to your overall well-being. Our restorative dentistry services are designed to renew and enhance the natural beauty of your teeth, and one essential aspect of our offering is Fillings.

What Are Fillings?

Fillings are a common dental procedure used to repair teeth affected by decay, cavities, or minor fractures. The process involves removing the damaged portion of the tooth and filling the space with a durable material, effectively restoring the tooth’s integrity and preventing further decay.

Our Approach to Fillings

Comprehensive Examination

Before recommending any treatment, our experienced dental team conducts a thorough examination to assess the extent of damage and determine the most suitable approach. We utilise advanced diagnostic tools, such as X-rays, to get a comprehensive view of your oral health.

Personalised Treatment Plans

We believe in individualised care, and our treatment plans are tailored to meet your specific needs. Whether it’s a small cavity or more extensive decay, our team works closely with you to develop a plan that ensures optimal restoration and functionality.

Types of Fillings

We offer a range of filling materials, including composite resin, amalgam, and porcelain. The choice of material depends on factors such as the location of the tooth, the extent of the damage, and your aesthetic preferences. Our dentists will discuss the options with you, ensuring you are well-informed and comfortable with the chosen material.

Painless Procedure

We prioritise your comfort throughout the entire process. Our skilled dentists use local anaesthesia to ensure a painless experience during the removal of decay and the placement of the filling. You can rest assured that you are in capable and caring hands.

Aesthetic Considerations

For visible teeth, we understand the importance of aesthetics. Tooth-coloured fillings, made from composite resin or porcelain, are carefully matched to the shade of your natural teeth, providing a seamless and aesthetically pleasing result.

Frequently Asked Questions

Dental fillings are dental restorations used to treat minor cracks, holes, and cavities. Dentists use gold, porcelain, or silver to fill holes and cavities.

Broken, chipped or tooth cavities can damage facial appearance and lead to more tooth damage and decay. Dental fillings help restore teeth’ health and shape back to normal.

During dental fillings, your dentist will remove damaged parts of the tooth (if any) and cleanse the site to wipe out plaque or bacteria from the tooth surface. Then, filling material will be applied to the teeth to fill in the space.

Typically, dental fillings last up to 10 years or even longer if you maintain optimum oral hygiene and visit your dentist biannually.
