As the name suggests fillings are used to fill in cleared cavities and minor tooth fractures.

Fillings should feel comfortable and natural in your teeth, and there are a variety of materials we can use to fit your needs. Fillings can help prevent further tooth decay and can restore the function and structure of a tooth.


What are dental fillings made out of?

Generally, dental fillings are made out of a composite resin which resembles the look, feel, and shade of natural teeth.

Glass Ionomer Cement (GIC) fillings are a newer style of filling that releases fluoride over time to help prevent further tooth decay. It is a great insulator for nerve tissue, so it is a popular choice for deep cavities to protect the nerves and prevent deeper tooth decay.


Do fillings hurt?

At Whitehall Dental Care, we want our patients to feel comfortable and relaxed. We use an anaesthetic to numb the gums and the surrounding area of the affected tooth before we begin the filling procedure.

We can stop at any time if you experience any discomfort. However, our patients often find the experience with our dentists painless.


Will my filling feel different?

After your filling treatment, we will shape your tooth so that it fits your natural bite structure. You may notice a slight difference in the area in the surface of the tooth in the first few days after the filling, but you should soon grow used to it.
