Dental Fillings

Tooth-Coloured Composite Fillings To Restore Chipped, Cracked Or Decayed Teeth

Dental problems like cavities, minor cracks, or chipped teeth can surface unexpectedly. These issues can arise due to factors as simple as poor oral care, unhealthy dietary habits, or dental trauma. Although they may seem minor initially, if ignored, they can develop into more complex problems that can affect your oral health.

At Lower Plenty Dental, we recognise the importance of timely intervention, using non-invasive methods to preserve your natural smile whenever possible. Traditional amalgam fillings may raise concerns due to their appearance and composition. We offer composite resin dental fillings, ensuring your dental work not only feels comfortable but also blends naturally with your existing teeth.

Dental Filling Procedure In Lower Plenty

At Lower Plenty Dental, your oral health and comfort remain at the forefront of our care. Our tooth-filling procedure is designed to be minimally invasive, often completed in just one or two visits.

We begin by numbing the area around the treated tooth. The decay is removed, and the space is filled. We use ceramic or composite resin materials to create dental fillings that match the natural colour of your teeth, ensuring a seamless and aesthetic result. The filling material is applied in layers and cured with a special light, ensuring strength and durability.

Tooth-coloured fillings help treat recent dental issues and replace older, deteriorating, or aesthetically displeasing restorations. For larger restorations, ceramic inlays/onlays or dental crowns may be recommended to restore the tooth’s strength and structure.

Dental fillings are only suitable when the decay is in its early stages. If the cavity has progressed and reached the nerve, a filling might not provide sufficient relief from the symptoms. In such cases, a root canal may be needed to remove the decay and preserve the remaining tooth. Regardless of the situation, we are committed to providing transparent and thorough guidance, ensuring you are well-informed throughout your oral care journey.

Protect Your Smile!

At Lower Plenty Dental, we believe there’s nothing stronger than your natural teeth. Restorative procedures such as dental fillings, crowns and root canal therapy can help preserve your existing teeth, removing decay and infection to prevent further damage while improving function, strength and appearance. Our dentists, oral therapists and hygienists are here to guide you at every step of your dental journey, from maintenance and preventive care to restorative treatments to improve oral health.


Research shows that root canal therapy has a success rate of 90-95%, with most people experiencing improved functionality.
