#1 Composite Fillings

A dental filling is a process of restoring a tooth using different types of material.

A dental filling or dental restoration can restore a tooth that has been affected due to decay or a crack.

Your Melbourne CBD dentist will remove and clean the decayed or cracked portion of the tooth and fill it with a ‘composite filling’.

#2 CEREC® (Ceramic) Fillings

The CEREC® (ceramic) fillings with ‘Omnicam 3D Technology’ will give you a beautiful and natural smile. CEREC® (ceramic) fillings can be completed in just one visit.

CEREC ® has completely eliminated messy impressions and laboratory work required for dental restorations. These restorations would take up to several weeks and require a series of dental appointments.

Is the process of fixing a composite dental filling complicated?

Composite fillings can be fixed in a single visit. Your Melbourne CBD dentist will first clean your tooth of any decay, once your tooth has been made numb. After cleaning and preparing the tooth, the new filling is placed with care and precision. It is then polished and shaped to make it look like the original tooth.

Care is taken to ensure that the colour of the filling matches the colour of the adjacent teeth to give you a natural smile.

You may feel a heightened sensitivity to cold or hot with your new filling, and this is a normal reaction. This sensitivity will subside as your tooth adapts to its new filling.

The Procedure

During your visit to Art De Dente, the affected tooth is first prepared for treatment. Any decayed tooth material, including material from an old tooth filling, is removed and the tooth is cleaned.

An electronic 3D scan is taken of the area using the CEREC® blue-light camera. This 3D scan image is then used to design and create a ceramic restoration for your tooth.

Using the CEREC® machine, the ceramic restoration is created quickly and efficiently.

Once ready, the Ceramic restoration is applied to the tooth and polished to look and feel natural. And all this is done in about an hour of your visit.

Advantages of CEREC®

CEREC® restorations give teeth greater strength and stability and are completely natural in their appearance. This material is closest to the natural aesthetics of teeth enamel than any material previously used.

Ceramic has superior strength and durability, which makes it long-lasting and value for your money.

CEREC® restorations are also far more natural-looking when compared to composite resin. And you can get this entire procedure done in just a single visit, thus eliminating multiple visits and temporary fillings.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a dental filling?
A filling restores a hole in a tooth or repairs a broken tooth and returns it to its original shape. Dentists carry out the process and use non-toxic materials that bond to your teeth.
What is the process of a filling like?
Once your Melbourne CBD dentist has discovered a cavity, all the decayed and weakened tooth is removed and replaced with filling material. After discussing your options regarding pain relief, you may opt for a local anaesthetic to numb your tooth and the surrounding area.
Does the treatment hurt?
The treatment is painless due to the anaesthetic that’s used. Afterwards, the treated area can feel tender and bruised, and your tooth can be sensitive. This sensitivity generally subsides over a couple of days. If you are at all worried contact your Melbourne CBD dentist for advice.
