Fillings

Dental Fillings are, perhaps, the most common of Dental procedures. Fillings are used to fill in cavities, but they can also be used to repair cracked, broken, or worn teeth as well.

Having a filling is a relatively quick and simple procedure. A topical anaesthetic is used to numb the area of treatment. Beyond the whirr of the drill, you’ll feel little discomfort, if any at all.

While your tooth is numb, your dentist will remove the decay from the affected tooth. They will then restore your tooth using either a Composite or Amalgam Filling.


If a cavity is left unfilled, the tooth may get painful. Fillings are a way to keep your tooth from developing more decay, from becoming painful and bothersome, and from the structure of your tooth from becoming weak, leading to potential fractures and cracks
