Dental Fillings

No more flossing pain or guilt.

It’s more common than you think

Dental fillings are a treatment for tooth decay (dental cavity).

Did you know:

that more than 90% of Australians will experience tooth decay?

Common causes include high sugar diets, risky drinking habits and smoking and there’s even a chance those that brush and floss twice a day may still experience tooth decay due to underlying health issues. This means you shouldn’t feel guilty or ashamed if your dentist recommends a filling.

Signs you might need a filling

Teeth can develop cavities from untreated decay, trauma, personal habits like chewing ice, persistent grinding or clenching. The extent of damage can vary greatly depending on when it’s discovered. You may experience a toothache or sharp pain in your tooth, extra sensitivity to cold or hot beverages, notice a hole in your tooth with a tongue or see your tooth is slightly chipped or worn down.
