Fillings at Berwick Dental Clinic & Surgery

Everyone knows how essential it is to keep up on your oral hygiene routines at home. Even those who brush and floss regularly may experience the common oral health problem of tooth decay. At Berwick Dental Clinic & Surgery, we provide tooth-coloured fillings that will blend in with your smile so that nobody knows they are there.

Why Choose White Fillings?

Once you have tooth decay, it won’t go away and must be addressed so that it doesn’t worsen, turn into an infection or spread to neighbouring teeth. The materials we can provide for tooth-coloured fillings include porcelain and composite.

A white filling isn’t as invasive as the silver amalgam fillings that were the standard for treatment in years past. It won’t require that as much of the tooth material be removed, and it won’t expand or contract when it comes into contact with hot or cold substances.

There is no mercury in our tooth-coloured fillings, making it the clear choice to address tooth decay.
We want you to be able to take control of your oral health, which is why we discuss your home habits with you. We’ll give you any relevant advice on products to use or techniques for brushing and flossing so that you can help keep your teeth and gums healthy between your checkups.

What to Expect

At a consultation, we’ll evaluate your tooth and determine the nature of your problem. If it is tooth decay, we’ll recommend that you have a filling to address the decay. This straightforward process involves having anaesthetic administered so that you stay relaxed and don’t experience any discomfort.
Then, we’ll remove the area of decay from the tooth, preserving as much as the existing tooth structure as possible. Then, the site is disinfected and dried. The filling material will be applied and shaped into the perfect form, followed by allowing it to harden into place. We’ll then polish your filling and make sure that you and your dentist are happy with the results.

Inlays and Onlays Available

If you have an area of decay that is larger, an inlay or onlay may be the most appropriate solution. These restorations are custom-created for you and can either fit on the cusps of the tooth or over them, depending on your needs. Once they’ve been fabricated, we will bond them to your teeth.
