Tooth filling is a way to restore a tooth, damaged by decay, back to its normal shape. Traditionally, grey amalgam fillings were used to fill in the cavities, however, we now have better, more aesthetically pleasing alternatives to the odd-looking grey fillings.
When your tooth is decayed, a Dentist sometimes has to remove the decayed part of the tooth, clean the area and fill the cavity with a filling material. Filling is an essential procedure as it closes off the spaces where bacteria can enter and create further decaying of the teeth. Historically, several materials have been used for fillings that have included luxury metals like gold and porcelain, grey amalgam fillings, and more recently coloured tooth fillings made from composite resin.
Restorative tooth filling is an important procedure as it stabilises your tooth’s structural integrity and ensures that it remains protected against further decay. Tooth filling also has a cosmetic side as it highly improves the appearance of your teeth. Expert and qualified Dentists at Smilexcellence in Richmond NSW ensure that their patient’s oral health is not only optimum but they also have a beautiful and pleasant smile, boosting their confidence.

This is our patients’ preferred choice for tooth filling as composite resins are matched to the same colour of your teeth, giving them a natural look. The composite is mixed and then filled into the cavity, where they harden with time. This tooth filling material, however, is not suited for large fillings as it can chip over time. Lasting from 3 to 10 years, composite is also prone to coffee and tobacco stains.
Porcelain fillings are called inlays or onlays and are produced to order in a lab and then bonded to the tooth. They can also be matched to the colour of the tooth and resist staining. Advanced bonding technologies make it last for quite a long time too.
Our expert Dentists at Smilexcellence will create tooth coloured restorations on the front and back of the teeth, giving them a natural appearance. With the help of advanced technology, we create a bonding that is strong and durable.
