Tooth Fillings

Tooth Fillings are by far the simplest and most commonly used restorative procedures in dentistry. Though fillings were made of metal in the previous decades, it has become obsolete now. Penrith Dental Clinic provides the most modern Tooth Fillings that look natural and are unidentifiable. They restore the natural function of the teeth after minor invasive procedures and also make your teeth look normal. Here is a brief instruction on fillings.

The Most Popular Types Of Tooth Fillings We Use:

  • • Amalgam – a silver-coloured filling created with Mercury, Tin, Copper, and Zinc.

  • • Composite – a tooth-coloured filling created with resin material.

Amalgam Fillings

Amalgam fillings are metallic fillings. Though this is not preferred by many people, we still use them because these tooth Fillings are hard and strong and might even stand a life time. However, they might cause increased sensitivity and have a metallic appearance. Hence, they do not have aesthetic advantages. The teeth might also look discoloured.

Composite Fillings

As the name indicates, these Tooth Fillings are made from a combination of two different materials. The advantage with composite fillings is that they can be tweaked to match the colour of your natural teeth. Composite fillings are easy to apply and they can also be used to reshape your teeth. Since these Tooth Fillings are easy to apply, they can also be used to fill the gaps between your teeth. This is currently the most used type of filling.
