Over time, our teeth can sustain damage from exposure to certain foods and inadequate dental care. This damage often leads to the decay of enamel, resulting in symptoms such as sensitivity to sweets and hot or cold foods and drinks. When the enamel weakens, it compromises your tooth’s structure and can lead to cavities.

At Honest Tooth Dental Care, we treat these issues with dental fillings. This common procedure not only reduces sensitivity but also restores your tooth’s structure. Our team meticulously removes any decay from your tooth and thoroughly cleans the area before placing the filling.

Signs You May Need a Dental Filling

Dental fillings in St Leonards are ideal for addressing cavities, cracks, or any type of tooth decay. It’s important that you treat these problems immediately to prevent further damage. If you notice any of the following signs, then you should consider getting a dental filling:

Persistent toothache

Sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures

You see a small crack or chip in your tooth

Noticeable dark spot on a tooth

If you think you may need a dental filling, it’s important to see a dentist as soon as possible!

Keep Your Teeth Healthy and Strong with Dental Fillings

Don’t wait for your toothache to get worse. It is much easier to treat a minor tooth issue than to deal with a more complicated problem later on.

Our caring dentists can assess the problem and provide an accurate diagnosis and the best course of treatment. That may include removing any decaying or damaged tissue, filling any cavities, or providing a root canal treatment if necessary.

Our dentist in St Leonards can also provide you with advice on how to maintain good oral hygiene, such as proper brushing and flossing techniques, and the best oral care products for you to use.

Frequently Asked Questions

A dental filling is a procedure that involves repairing a damaged or decayed tooth by filling the affected area with a dental material. This material helps to restore the strength and appearance of the tooth.

There are several types of dental fillings, including composite, silver amalgam, gold, porcelain, and glass ionomer. Each type has its own unique characteristics and benefits.

We do use amalgam/silver material – we are a non amalgam practice since 1986

The procedure for a dental filling typically involves the following steps: numbing the area around the tooth, removing the decayed or damaged tissue, cleaning the affected area, and filling the void with the dental material.

Most people do not experience significant pain during a dental filling. Your dentist will use a local anesthetic to numb the area around the tooth, making the procedure relatively pain-free.

The lifespan of a dental filling depends on several factors, including the type of material used, the size of the filling, and your oral hygiene habits. On average, dental fillings can last anywhere from 5 to 15 years, but with proper care and regular dental check-ups, they can last much longer.
