Frequently Asked Questions about
Dental fillings strengthen the tooth structure by filling in the damaged areas when teeth are cracked, broken, or decayed. They can restore your tooth to its normal function and shape and prevent further damage.
Dental fillings can also be used for cosmetic purposes to improve the appearance of your teeth and give you an attractive smile.
Dental fillings offer many benefits. They can help:
- Reduce the spread of tooth decay and improve your dental health.
- Restore the strength and function of your teeth.
- Improve the appearance of your teeth and smile.
- Reduce tooth sensitivity or toothache.
Discover if dental fillings are right for you with a personalised treatment plan from your qualified healthcare professional.
During the dental procedure, our dental team will:
- Apply local anaesthesia, if needed, to numb the area around your tooth.
- Remove the decayed or damaged portion of your tooth.
- Determine the type of filling material based on different factors and your personal preference.
- Place the filling material in increments. They may use a device to harden each layer of it.
- Shape and polish the filling. Depending on the material used, this may be done on the same dental visit or another day.
- Provide you with aftercare and oral hygiene instructions.
The longevity of your dental fillings depends on the filling material used, your oral hygiene practices, and habits (e.g., clenching or grinding your teeth, using tobacco). Amalgam (silver) fillings typically last much longer and can last up to 15 years. Composite fillings or white fillings can last anywhere from 5 to 10 years but look more natural.
It’s important that you practise excellent dental hygiene and visit your dentist regularly so they can monitor your fillings.
Avoid eating hard, sticky, or crunchy foods for the first 24 hours after your dental fillings are placed. To prevent damage, you should also avoid grinding your teeth or biting too hard where the filling is located.
The fillings can cost from $140 up to $390, depending on the material used, size and location of the cavity. However, dental costs vary due to many different factors, which is why we highly recommend that you visit our clinic for more accurate information. Dental fillings are cost-effective and can last many years with good oral health care.
It is best to contact your private health insurance provider to determine if dental fillings are covered under your plan.
