Dental fillings are part of cavity treatment. If you have a cavity, it means an area of decay on your tooth that needs intervention from your Katoomba dentist.
Dentists relied exclusively on silver amalgam fillings to treat tooth decay in the past. Today, we can use a tooth-coloured option to not take away from the appearance of your smile.
A tooth-coloured filling is made of white composite resin. We apply this resin in layers after treating the tooth decay. The resin hardens to restore function and aesthetics to your tooth.
The advantages of tooth-coloured fillings are that they are virtually undetectable when you smile. They also do not contain mercury, which many patients prefer.
Of course, no fillings at all are best! To lower your risks for tooth decay, be sure to adopt and implement an excellent oral care routine at home. And visit your dentist in Katoomba on schedule for check-ups and teeth cleans. Additionally, if you notice any issues between dental visits, we encourage you to contact our helpful team.
