How Fillings Help Your Teeth

A filling's main purpose is to fill in the gaps left behind by cavities. A cavity is a hole that dental decay causes. If you leave the cavity untreated, this can cause infection and even tooth loss. Once a dentist discovers your cavity, they will take out the decay and put in a filling. The filling stops future decay, gives your teeth strength and provides you with a full and healthy smile.


What Types of Fillings Are Available​


A few different types of fillings exist. Here are the main types:

  • Amalgam fillings: These fillings are metal-based and the least expensive of all fillings. Their main disadvantage is that they don't match the colour of the teeth surrounding them.

  • Composite fillings: Composite fillings are tooth-coloured, giving their wearer a beautiful, natural-looking smile.

  • Ceramic fillings: Ceramic fillings are also tooth-coloured. They are the most expensive out of the main filling types.


If you're unsure which filling is right for you, speak to an experienced dentist from Barrabool Hills Family Dental Practice.
