At Toombul Smiles Dental Clinic, when decay occurs our dentists use smile-saving tooth-coloured fillings to seal and repair the tooth. Composite, made of resin and microscopic glass particles, comes in a variety of shades to match your tooth.
Your dentist will numb the area, if necessary. (Some small cavities may not require anaesthetic.) Your comfort, and that of your child, is of the utmost importance to our team. Pain-free dentistry is always our goal.
After removing decay and bacteria, your dentist will begin applying the composite in layers, hardening it with a curing light between layers. Once the final layer is applied, we will shape and polish the filling to blend in with the tooth.
Because it is so versatile and conservative, we can make small repairs to teeth to improve their appearance. Composite bonds directly to the tooth structure and provides a way to repair chips, fill small gaps between teeth and reshape teeth for cosmetic solutions in a single appointment.
