Many people will need at least one filling in their lifetime as tooth decay can cause cavities, or teeth may become cracked or chipped and must be repaired. Here at Dapto Smile Dental Centre, we can quickly and comfortably mend any damaged teeth. Our aim is to provide minimally invasive dentistry, preserving as much of your natural tooth as we can. Once your tooth has been filled, it is protected against further decay and infection and you can bite, chew and smile with complete confidence.
How Will I Know if I Need a Filling?
Attending regular check-ups is the easiest way to ensure any leaky older fillings, or small cavities or signs of damage to your teeth are detected. If a cavity is larger, it can cause sensitivity or pain, so if you feel something is wrong, please contact us as soon as possible. The sooner we can mend a tooth with a filling, the more likely we can save your tooth. Smaller fillings are also quicker and more cost-effective.
