Fillings, Inlays and Onlays

When you develop tooth decay, it is important to see a dentist to have the areas of decay carefully removed from the tooth. Once completed, there are many options to fill in the space. Some include fillings, inlays and onlays.

Fillings can be constructed with a composite material that match your natural teeth colour. Inlays and onlays are stronger and will last longer than fillings and are made out of dental porcelain.

Types of Tooth Repair Treatments

White Composite Fillings

A filling is usually required when a tooth has decay, cracks or chips. Once diagnosed, the tooth is then prepared prior to placing a white composite resin in to the cavity (or amalgam if necessary) which will mimic the natural shape and colour of the tooth

The tooth is cleaned then a white composite resin material is crafted to replicate your tooth. If a tooth is sensitive or may become so during treatment, a local anesthetic can be offered for a comfortable, pain free, anxiety free visit

Inlays and Onlays

Inlays and onlays are constructed by our high quality laboratory technicians to colour match them to your tooth shade.

They are then ‘glued’ into your tooth.

Inlays and onlays are stronger and will last longer than fillings and can be made out of either porcelain or gold.

For people with a “heavy bite” they can also provide additional strength and coverage.

Common Questions About Fillings

What causes cavities that require a filling?

Cavities are caused by food acid that erodes the tooth enamel. Many cavities start to develop in the tiny spaces between teeth or in the pits of the back molar teeth, making it very hard to detect unless you are a trained dentist.

What is a dental filling?

A filling restores a hole in a tooth, or repairs a chipped 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 it like to have a filling?

Once the dentist has discovered a cavity, all of 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. It doesn’t take very long, usually within an hour you’ll be done and resuming normal activities.

Do you offer white fillings?

Yes, we generally use white composite fillings because the composite resin bonds to your tooth making the tooth stronger plus it blends beautifully with your tooth.

Will my tooth hurt after having a filling?

Your tooth may feel a little sensitive after it’s filled. Sensitivity is completely normal and usually goes away in a few hours or even overnight.
