Restorations

Due to advances in technology, patients can have cavities restored with tooth coloured material (composite resin).

These modern materials are a much better alternative to traditional amalgam fillings as they

  • Do not release mercury
  • Do not expand and cause the teeth to crack
  • Are less invasive (don’t need as much tooth to be drilled)
  • Look very cosmetic and natural
  • Can be used on front and back teeth
  • Bond to the tooth for a long term seal.

They are a good option when around 30-50% of the tooth has decay. If there is more damage to the tooth, out dentist may recommend a ceramic crown.
