Fillings at Plaza Dental Centre

Restore Your Teeth in Hurstville

Dental fillings are a common and essential component of oral health care, serving to restore and reinforce teeth damaged by decay or fractures. When tooth decay occurs, bacteria produce acids that erode the enamel, creating cavities. Fillings, composed of various materials such as amalgam, composite resin, or porcelain, are employed to repair these cavities and prevent further deterioration.

The Treatment Process

The treatment process typically begins with the removal of the decayed portion of the tooth, followed by thorough cleaning and preparation of the affected area. Dentists then apply the chosen filling material, shaping and polishing it to seamlessly blend with the natural tooth structure. This not only restores the tooth’s integrity but also prevents the spread of decay, maintaining overall oral health.

Fillings are crucial for preserving tooth function and preventing more extensive dental issues. Left untreated, cavities can lead to severe pain, infections, and even tooth loss. Why you shouldn’t delay your filling treatment:
