We understand the importance of maintaining your oral health.

Dental fillings are a common and essential procedure in dentistry, and we are here to provide you with the highest quality care. Our skilled team of dentists is committed to ensuring your comfort and restoring your smile with precision and care.

Types of Dental Fillings

  • Composite Fillings: Composite fillings are tooth-coloured and blend seamlessly with your natural teeth. They are an excellent choice for front teeth and visible areas, as they provide an aesthetic advantage. Composite fillings are also versatile and can be used for small to medium-sized restorations.
  • Glass Ionomer Fillings: Glass ionomer fillings are a mixture of acrylic and glass powders. They are often used for non-load-bearing areas and as temporary fillings. Glass ionomer fillings release fluoride, which can help prevent further decay.

The Filling Procedure

The process of getting a dental filling typically involves the following steps:

  1. Diagnosis: Our skilled dentists will first examine your tooth and take X-rays, if necessary, to assess the extent of the damage.
  2. Anaesthesia: Local anaesthesia will be administered to numb the affected area, ensuring that you are comfortable throughout the procedure.
  3. Decay Removal: The decayed portion of the tooth will be carefully removed, leaving behind a healthy tooth structure.
  4. Filling Placement: The selected filling material will be applied and shaped to restore the natural contour of your tooth.
  5. Finishing and Polishing: The filling will be polished to ensure a smooth and comfortable fit.

Benefits of Dental Fillings

  • Restored oral health.
  • Improved tooth strength and functionality.
  • Prevention of further decay.
  • Aesthetic improvement for composite fillings.
  • Long-lasting results.
  • Preservation of your natural smile.


1. What Are Dental Fillings?

Dental fillings are restorative treatments used to repair teeth that have been damaged by decay or minor fractures. They are a fundamental part of preventive and restorative dentistry. When a tooth has a cavity, it is crucial to remove the decayed portion and fill the resulting space to prevent further damage and restore the tooth’s strength and functionality.
