Smile-Saving Cavity Protection

Tooth decay penetrates the surface of your teeth, leaving cavities. This damage can cause toothache and bad breath, leaving you open to dental infection.

Fillings are simple restorations that prevent more significant issues later. Tooth decay can affect you at any age, and whenever a cavity forms, you’ll need a filling.

At The Dental Suite, we use high-quality tooth-coloured fillings designed to last.

Why Do I Need a Filling?

There are several symptoms of tooth decay. You will need a filling if you have sensitivity to hot or cold food and drink, persistent toothache, or acute pain while biting or chewing.

While injuring a tooth may mean you need a filling, tooth decay is the most common reason for this type of repair. Tooth decay occurs through acid erosion.

There are countless bacteria inside your mouth. Many are harmless or even helpful. But some feed on sugar and starch in your diet. When they feed, bacteria produce acid. As bacteria, food debris, and saliva combine, they create a sticky plaque coating.

Plaque is easily removed through regular brushing. If left on your teeth, the acid erodes your dental enamel and cavities form.

If you grind your teeth, it can wear your enamel down. This may also damage your teeth and require repair using a filling.

The Benefits of Fillings

The fillings we use at The Dental Suite have several benefits.

PERFECTLY SUBTLE

Once in place, nobody will see your filling. We use a resin that matches the natural colour of your teeth so they’ll blend seamlessly into your smile.

MADE TO LAST

We use high-quality materials and clinically proven techniques, meaning your fillings will last many years. And, if your filling ever needs repairing, the process is simple.

EXCEPTIONAL PROTECTION

Fillings provide a strong barrier that protects your compromised teeth from harmful bacteria. A filling will prevent dental infections.

The Filling Process

After assessing the affected tooth, we’ll use a local anaesthetic to ensure maximum comfort during your treatment. Before placing the filling, we’ll remove the decayed portion of your tooth. Next, we’ll shape, clean, and dry the tooth.

Once prepped, we’ll fill the cavity with a discreet, tooth-coloured resin before smoothing the filling so your teeth sit correctly when your mouth is closed.

Recovery is brief following treatment. Your mouth may feel numb for a while after you leave. During this time, avoid chewing and don’t drink hot beverages. After the anaesthetic wears off, chew meals on the opposite side of your mouth for the rest of the day.

Some sensitivity is normal for a few days after treatment. You can manage these symptoms with ordinary painkillers.

How to Avoid Tooth Decay

Although tooth-coloured fillings prevent further damage and infection, avoiding decay is always essential. You can minimise the chance of needing fillings by:

  • Brushing your teeth thoroughly twice daily
  • Using an interdental brush between teeth
  • Choosing a high-fluoride toothpaste
  • Replacing your toothbrush often
  • Reducing the amount of sugar you consume
  • Coming to see us for checkups
  • Making appointments with our hygienist

I had Enlighten whitening, icon treatment and cosmetic bonding with Dr Sanita and Emma. They were both very friendly and made me feel comfortable in every appointment. Sarah was also always welcoming and helpful. I’m very happy with my results and will be going back in the future for more treatments ?✨

I have had full removal of my teeth and full implants fitted by the Dental suite, the service and work I received were second to none. All my questions and fears were put to rest by the professionalism of all the staff involved with my dental works. The ongoing support is also seconded to none. Highly recommended!

I went in with jaw ache and needed a filling in one tooth. The filling was done quickly and painlessly and the jaw ache was diagnosed as bruxism. I got fitted for a sleep clench inhibitor and after a few months of use had no pain in my jaw!

I recently got Cosmetic Bonding – It was such a simple process for me to go through with no pain at all, Kiren did an absolutely amazing job and I couldn’t be happier with the result, they look beyond perfect and completely natural. She has been so helpful since my first appointment with her and I couldn’t recommend her and The Dental Suite enough! Many thanks again
