Filling Cavities can Improve Your Smile

Filling Cavities can Improve Your Smile - Precision Dental Brisbane, Fortitude Valley

Getting a cavity filled these days no longer means leaving the dentist office with a mouth full of silver and a less than perfect smile.

In fact, having a cavity filled at Precision Dental in Fortitude Valley, could potentially improve your smile.

Vast improvements in materials and techniques of composite resin fillings (sometimes called “white fillings”) in recent years means that you can get a damaged tooth repaired and come away with a tooth that might look better than the original.

Tooth-coloured Fillings

Composite resin fillings are non-metallic fillings that can be coloured and shaped to match your teeth virtually perfectly.

In the hands of a skillful dentist, like Dr. Choi at Precision Dental, you can get your tooth repaired and be confident that the dental work will be virtually unnoticeable.

And, if your original tooth had some defects or discolouration, you could even walk away with a more attractive smile than you arrived with.

Advantages of Composite Resin Fillings


The biggest advantage to getting a composite resin filling at Precision Dental is the aesthetically pleasing results.

Dr. Choi can adjust the colour of the resin material to match your teeth and make the repair virtually invisible. It will look great!

Preservation of the Original Tooth Structure

Amalgam fillings require sculpting a specially shaped cavity to hold them in place, because they are not bonded to the tooth surface.

This often requires drilling away large portions of healthy tooth in order to create a “box” to hold the filling in place.

Composite resin fillings are bonded to the tooth with powerful adhesives and can be installed with much less alteration to the healthy, original tooth.

For that reason, they don’t require a lot of reshaping of the tooth for installation.

Strengthens Tooth

Tooth structure is generally strengthened by the bonding of the composite filling to the original tooth.

Improved Shape

The composite filling can be shaped to improve or replicate the shape of the original tooth.

Less Costly

Composite resin fillings are sometimes a less costly alternative to replacing a tooth with a dental crown.

No Mercury

Using composite resin fillings eliminates the need for using mercury and other heavy metals that are required for silver amalgam fillings.

Why You Should Choose Precision Dental in Fortitude Valley

In order to enjoy the long lasting benefits of composite resin fillings, they must be installed precisely according to professional, technical standards, or they can develop flaws and fail. This can cause pain, inconvenience, and expense for the patient.
