How to Choose the Right Dental Fillings in Casula
Which filling should I choose for my tooth?
This is a common question we have to answer when we visit a dentist.
With dentistry evolving at such a high pace and with so many technological advances in dentistry, we have more and more options available now.
Although it is hard to explain all the differences between the different materials available, we can touch base on three main materials available to make a choice easy for you.
Types of Dental Filling to Choose From
Keep in mind that each material has its strengths and weaknesses. There is no one perfect filling for every person. Your Casula dentist will be helpful when deciding which type of filling to go with.
Amalgam (silver) fillings are a very popular type of dental filling. These fillings will often last at least 10 years and often much longer. They are extremely durable and are among the most affordable options. One of the major disadvantages is the colour, which will not match the tooth that is being repaired.
Ceramic fillings are more expensive than other types. These are made of porcelain and are durable and aesthetically attractive. They’re tooth-coloured and resistant to staining and abrasion.
Glass ionomers (acrylic fillings) often last for less than five years but are a good choice for children if their teeth are changing. They can also release fluoride, and this helps to prevent tooth decay.
Which Dental Filling Material Works Best for You?
Consult with your dentist about which type of dental filling is right for your budget and your particular preferences.
Dental Fillings at Casula Dental Care
Casula Dental Care offers durable tooth-coloured fillings for patients in and around the Casula area.
Porcelain fillings give aesthetically pleasing results. Since they look like natural teeth, it is hard for anyone to tell that you might have a filling.
Tooth-coloured fillings restore the function and appearance of the tooth and are mercury-free. Less tooth enamel removal is required as the size of the hole made for the filling can be smaller for tooth-coloured fillings.
