Dental Fillings

Dental Filling Service

A dental filling is one of the most common procedures carried out by a dentist. They are usually required when a cavity or hole in your tooth needs to be filled. A variety of materials can be used for teeth filling. Your dentist can discuss the options and help determine the most suitable one for you depending on considerations such as cost and the severity of the cavity.

At Coorparoo Dental & Denture Clinic, our friendly, highly experienced dentists provide dental fillings in a comforting environment as part of our general dental services.

Getting a Dental Cavity Filled

When you get a dental filling, your dentist will use a drill and other tools to remove the decayed areas of your tooth. If needed, you can get a local anaesthetic to relieve any discomfort. Once any decay has been removed, the dental cavity is cleaned and dried, then filled with a filling material.
