Dental Fillings in Dulwich Hill

Dr Saad with patient in dental chairAre you concerned about your oral health? At Wardell Dental Clinic, our team of dentists provides a wide range of services. You can feel confident that we’ll be able to address any potential problems and help you keep your teeth and gums healthy.

If you have a tooth that has a crack from trauma or a cavity from tooth decay, our high-quality fillings can repair your tooth. By having a filling, you’ll avoid the chance of more serious problems developing that would require a tooth extraction.

The materials our fillings are made from are tooth-coloured so that they blend in with the rest of your teeth.

Your Decay Won’t Go Away

A problem with your teeth should never be ignored. If you have a cavity, you might be able to feel a pit with your tongue, have extreme sensitivity or notice that you have some pain in the tooth. If left untreated, tooth decay will spread. It can affect your neighbouring teeth or cause an infection that results in tooth and bone loss.

A dental filling will restore the health of your tooth. Bacteria will be unable to re-enter the area once it’s been sealed off with the filling material, meaning your decay can’t worsen.

What to Expect When Getting a Filling

Getting a filling is a simple procedure where you’ll be kept comfortable the entire time. Once we’ve determined that you need a filling, the process is as follows:

  • The affected area is numbed
  • Instruments are used to remove the decay
  • The area is disinfected and dried
  • The filling material is applied and hardened
  • The filling is polished to a sparkling finish

It’s our goal to leave as much of your tooth structure intact as possible. We’ll remove only the areas of decay so that your natural tooth is left untouched.

Inlays and Onlays Available

In some cases, the damage or decay to your tooth might be too large to receive a filling. If so, we can provide an inlay or onlay. This restoration is custom-created in a laboratory. It can then be strongly bonded to your tooth to restore its look and function.
