You can brush and floss regularly and still end up facing the occasional problem that compromises your oral health. Tooth decay is a common issue that affects children and adults alike, resulting in a cavity or a small hole in the tooth. The Fortitude Valley Dentist team provides fillings to restore the function, shape and colour of your tooth.

Amalgam-free Dentistry to Protect Your Health

Silver amalgam fillings, also known as mercury fillings, are no longer the only choice to fill cavities. Instead, we repair broken or decayed teeth with white fillings that blend in with your original teeth.

We remove amalgam fillings using a rubber dam for isolation and high speed vacuum suction to minimize inhalation and swallowing of any residual material. With our state-of-the-art technology and strict infection control protocols, you’ll know that you’re in good hands with the most stringent procedures.

The price of a filling ranges from $195-$395.

The Danger of Waiting

Our team is experienced in providing dental fillings with trusted materials like composite or porcelain. They blend in very nicely with your existing teeth. Once you suspect you may have a cavity or decay, we recommend that you contact our clinic straightaway. If left untreated, tooth decay can spread leading to a toothache or tooth sensitivity. Untreated cavities are full of bacteria, which over time can affect the nerve of the tooth, which then needs more expensive procedures like root canal treatment.

What to Expect

The procedure for receiving a filling is straightforward and simple, as well as being virtually painless. We utilize anesthetic to make sure you’re numb before we start. First, the decay is removed, ensuring that we preserve as much of the natural tooth as possible. Then, the area is dried and disinfected so that it can receive the filling. The material is applied, then shaped and allowed to harden. The bite is then checked for comfort and the filling polished. Terms and conditions apply.

* Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
