Dental fillings restore a tooth to its original shape after decay has been removed (see the picture)
When a tooth gets decayed, STAR dentistry's surgeons must remove the decay and rebuild the part that has been removed. This is a dental filling. The material used for fillings has changed dramatically over the years, and our experienced surgeons at STAR dentistry only use white composite, or porcelain, for a natural finish that is almost impossible to differentiate from a normal tooth.
Metal (amalgam) fillings, are not used at Oatley Family Dental. We are more than happy to discuss changing your old metal fillings into natural looking white restorations.
If you are in pain, it is likely that the tooth will need further treatment than a filling. Please call STAR dentistry for an emergency appointment immediately if this is the case.
