Dental Fillings at K&R Dental

Woman in dental chairTooth decay is one of the most common oral health problems. At K&R Dental, we can restore your tooth back to its natural colour, shape and function with dental fillings, inlays or onlays. The materials used are white to match the existing colour of your teeth so that nobody knows the procedure has been completed.

Dental Fillings

Your cavity can be effectively addressed with a filling. A variety of materials can be used to create a filling, including porcelain and composite, to repair the tooth. If you have tooth decay, keep in mind that it won’t get better.

Once decay is present, it will erode your tooth and can even result in an infection that can spread and cause tooth loss. Often, you may have pain or tooth sensitivity due to a cavity. A filling repairs the damage and prevents any more bacteria from entering and adding to the area of decay.

The Procedure for a Filling

Fillings are a service that our team is well-versed in providing. It’s a simple and straightforward process that is virtually painless. We administer safe, effective anaesthetics to ensure your comfort before proceeding.

We’ll begin with numbing the affected area. Specialised instruments are used to remove the decay, making sure that we leave as much of the natural tooth structure as possible. The cavity site is then disinfected and dried so that it can receive the filling. Once the material applied has hardened, it can be shaped and polished to perfection.

Inlays and Onlays

Inlays and onlays are similar to dental fillings. Just like fillings, they address areas of tooth decay or other damage. While fillings are applied directly to the cavity, an inlay or onlay is custom-created in our dental laboratory, then bonded onto the tooth.
