Dental Fillings in South Brisbane

Young woman with dark hair and beautiful smileTooth decay can happen, even to people who are strict about regular brushing, flossing and dental checkups. Though it may occur, cavities are easily treated without resorting to metal fillings that contain mercury. At Melbourne St Dental Studio, we provide tooth-coloured fillings that are created from biocompatible materials, which blend in seamlessly with your natural teeth.

Safe Composite Fillings

The traditional silver fillings of days past stand out from the rest of your teeth. They’re not aesthetically pleasing, and they contain small amounts of mercury. Using these metal materials requires that more of the tooth structure is removed than with tooth-coloured, composite fillings. Furthermore, when hot or cold touches the metal, it contracts and expands, which in turn can weaken the tooth around the filling.

White fillings are bonded directly to the tooth, so they are less invasive. With a variety of colours available, we can select the shade that matches your smile.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are white fillings noticeable?

No. When you smile or speak, nobody will know that you have a filling, so you can feel confident.

Do I need to get a filling if I have a cavity?

It’s not possible for tooth decay to go away. We recommend that you have it treated straightaway, as it can spread just like a normal infection, affecting neighbouring teeth and leading to possible tooth loss. By getting prompt attention, you will likely require a small filling.

What are the signs that I have a cavity?

The symptoms you may experience include:

  • A visible hole or dark spot on the tooth
  • A rough area you can feel with your tongue
  • Sensitivity when chewing

If you experience any of the above, please contact our clinic so that we can examine the tooth.

Can you replace my old metal fillings?

Yes. We have the equipment and knowledge to safely remove silver fillings and replace them with a tooth-coloured filling.
