Dental fillings or tooth fillings are designed to restore part of a broken or damaged tooth. Fillings are one of the simplest ways to fix up teeth damaged by tooth decay. Cavities are caused by the decay of tooth from bacterial acids in plaque that is formed when consuming certain food and drink. Our family friendly dentists will fill that hole to prevent the bacteria from getting deeper into the tooth pulp and causing more damage. Untreated cavities can lead to severe toothaches and infection possibly requiring extraction or expensive treatment to save the tooth.
At Murray Valley Dental Group our dental experts will take the time to make your fillings look as natural as possible!
The materials used for fillings can vary from metal amalgam fillings to white composite fillings. At Murray Valley Dental Group, the choice is completely yours. The white composite fillings have the advantage of being tooth coloured and hardly noticeable.
