(Fillings)

Direct restorations commonly known as fillings are utilised to restore a tooth affected by decay, cracks, fractures, and other issues. The decayed or affected part of the tooth is removed and then replaced with a restorative material.

Dr. Nathan Phung can guide you with the best options for restoring your teeth. Composite fillings can be closely matched to the colour of existing teeth as they are tooth-coloured, making them more aesthetically suitable for use in front teeth or other visible areas. Sometimes other filling materials are used to provide the tooth with the best longevity. These fillings are highly durable and can provide a long-lasting, beautiful smile.

Fillings are typically placed in a single appointment. we will remove any decay as needed. The area will then be meticulously cleaned and prepared before the new filling is placed. If the decay is close to the nerve of the tooth, a special medication may be applied for additional protection. The filling is then accurately placed, shaped, and polished, restoring the tooth to its original shape and function.
