White (composite) fillings are the most basic and commonly used restorative dental treatment.

Previously, amalgam or silver fillings would be used to treat patients with cavities. Today, white or composite fillings are used for two main reasons, the cosmetic appearance and also the fact that they require less healthy tooth structure to be removed.

The primary issue with amalgam fillings is that they require healthy tooth structure to be drilled away and the filling does not completely fill the patient’s cavity. This allows for further decay to develop. Composite fillings fully seal off the cavity, meaning there is no space for decay to form underneath the filling. This does not however make your tooth impartial to decay; you will still need to take good care of your oral health.

For the majority of the time your dentist we will be able to assess if you have a cavity during your general consultation, the need for a filling can often be characterised by the following symptoms.

Symptoms of tooth decay

  • Bleeding gums
  • Pain when chewing
  • Toothaches
  • Throbbing sensation in the gums
  • Sensitivity

If you suffer from these symptoms, even mildly, you should look to book an appointment with Redlands Gentle Dental Care. Treating the problem as early as possible can be the difference between a simple filling and a root canal.

White composite fillings are matched with the shade of your current natural teeth and require no healthy tooth structure to be removed.

Dental fillings treatment

Composite fillings are able to be completed in just the one appointment depending on your individual case and the number of teeth being treated. Our dentists will work to remove the decay from the tooth and place the composite material. Finally, an ultraviolet light will be used to allow the material to set giving you the appearance of a natural and complete tooth.

Aftercare

Composite fillings are still susceptible to a range of issues including, gum disease, trauma, decay and other oral health problems, this makes it imperative for you to take great care of your oral health. You should also attend Redlands Gentle Dental Care for regular six-month check-ups to ensure your continued optimal oral health. If you would like to make an appointment to have a check-up get in contact with our friendly team today.
