Tooth decay and fillings
When a tooth is compromised by decay, it will continue to spread throughout the tooth unless it is treated. Your dentist will remove the decayed tooth structure and a filling is placed to seal the tooth from further bacterial infiltration and to restore the tooth back to its original shape and function.
Did you know there are different grades of dental fillings?
Composite resin fillings are the most common filling material being easy to use and versatile in its application. They are white in colour and are matched to the shade of your teeth. In addition to restoring teeth with dental decay, they can also be used to repair chipped or worn teeth.
When a tooth has lost a large amount of tooth structure, ceramic can be used to make onlays and inlays. Ceramics are much stronger than composite resin materials and will provide greater wear-resistance and durability. At Holdsworth House Dental Practice, we utilise CEREC technology to be able to offer patients SAME-DAY ceramic inlays and onlays.
Our dentists at Holdsworth House Dental Practice are skilled in all levels of dental restorations, which include simple tooth-coloured fillings, CEREC same-day ceramic restorations, dental crowns and bridges and dental implants. We can also work to restore the aesthetics and function of broken teeth and replace missing teeth.
