Fillings are a common and effective means of tooth restoration in which white composite resin is used to fill cavities caused by tooth decay and restore the strength and function of teeth.

tooth dental fillings

Lifetime Holistic Dental only uses composite resin because it is biocompatible, unlike amalgam fillings which contain mercury and are unsightly. Composite fillings are white, so they are completely invisible inside the mouth.

Fillings don’t just treat cavities, they are also effective at preventing cavities from getting bigger and causing further structural damage. They really are a weapon against losing your teeth. So make sure you visit your dentist every six months to see if you have any cavities that need attention.

Our Fillings Procedure

We offer a procedure that is straightforward and with the help of local anaesthetic, pain-free. We use the following process:

First, all the decayed tissue is removed from the cavity
The composite resin is poured into the cavity, and a light beam is used to cure and set it
Once it is set, we trim and shape the filling until you have the perfect bite

If you have an extensively damaged tooth, we may also add a pin rod to support the filling and add strength to your tooth. In many cases, this can save you from having to have the tooth extracted.
