Dental Filling

Keysborough Dental Surgery offers strong, durable dental filling

Do you experience pain and sensitivity in your teeth while brushing, eating or drinking hot or cold fluid? It could be because of tooth decay which needs urgent dental filling and care.

At Keysborough Dental Surgery, our professional team offer different dental fillings depending on the location of the filling, degree of tooth damage or decay, your existing allergies and your budget.

There are different fillings available in the market and our dentist can help you choose what suits your requirement best. Some of them are as follows.

Amalgam Fillings

Amalgam fillings are a combination of metals like copper, silver, tin and mercury. Though a strong and stable filling material, it is primarily suggested for dental fillings in teeth at the back, because of its dark colour.

Composite Fillings

Composite fillings are pretty popular with people because of their colour. The composite fillings are closest to your natural pearls and are made of composite resin. This filling is suitable for small to mid-sized restorations that withstand moderate chewing pressure.

Glass Ionomer Fillings

Glass Ionomer filling easily bind with tooth tissue. This filling slowly releases a fluoride over time to help prevent decay under and around the cavity. But since they wear off easily it is not recommended for the weight bearing molars.

Gold and Porcelain Inlays

Gold fillings are custom made in laboratory and work well with gum tissues. With high durability and strength, gold is considered the best dental filling material, but is the most expensive option too. Porcelain fillings are second most expensive dental filing. Easily customisable, porcelain inlays are popular as they are stain resistance and can be merged with the natural teeth colour.
