General Dentistry


You may require a filling to restore the cavities left behind once decay has been removed from your tooth, or to replace existing restorations that are leaking or damaged.

A filling is a plug of material that is placed into a tooth to replace missing tooth substance or structure. There are many different options available when it comes to filling a tooth.

White fillings consist of composite resins and glass ionomers, and have the ability to bond to your tooth structure. They are a good way to aesthetically restore your tooth.

Silver fillings or dental amalgams are strong, durable restorations. These fillings may be considered when conditions are not suitable for utilising tooth coloured filling materials.

Your dentist at the Melbourne Dental Group will discuss your options with you and recommend the best approach for your tooth based on your needs and current scientific evidence.
