A cavity formed in the tooth due to decay can cause toothache, pain or sensitivity when biting or chewing. It is essential to treat the decay and fill the cavity to prevent further deterioration or infection of the tooth’s nerve. A dentist may also use a filling treatment to reshape a worn-down tooth or fix a minor crack.
Dental fillings are available in a range of materials varying in colour, properties, benefits and cost. At Slade Dental Practice & Implant Centre, we offer resin, porcelain, gold, amalgam and composite dental fillings.
Our team of dental professionals will recommend an appropraite filling material depending on the treatment needs, as well as considering the patient’s health and aesthetic preferences.
