Almost everyone will get a cavity at least once in their life, and while they are common, they shouldn't be taken lightly. Cavities and other forms of tooth decay can tremendously impact your oral health if not treated in time.
A standard treatment for cavities is dental fillings, which are used to treat teeth damaged from decay or injury. The result is a strong and healthy tooth completely restored.
Dental fillings are made from moldable materials that fill and cover the tooth, protecting it from further damage. At Winelands Dentistry, we work with quality dental materials and tools to ensure our patients receive the best care for their needs.
Our dental filling materials include:
Both of these materials are durable and long-lasting, giving your tooth the support it needs to function at its best. Ceramic porcelain is the strongest material available, whereas composite resin is more affordable.
Our expert dentist will assess your tooth and provide a diagnosis before recommending the best material and treatment plan for your needs.
Dental fillings procedures are quick, painless and performed at our clinics. The dentist will first numb the area to ensure your comfort before thoroughly cleaning the impacted tooth. It's essential to remove any bacteria or decay so that when the filling is applied, the tooth won't get infected again.
Once ready and dry, the dentist applies the filling material and moulds it to fit your tooth's natural shape. The material is then cured and buffed, and you can resume your normal activities immediately with no downtime.
