Repairing teeth and treating cavities with tooth-coloured fillings

For any teeth that have been damaged, we can repair them using composite fillings. We can rebuild teeth, resculpting the bite surface and restoring their functionality. If you have any dental decay, we can repair the damage and relieve any dental pain. Fillings protect the internal structure of the tooth, preventing any further damage and ensuring your natural tooth stays healthy.

At Glow Dental, we use dental composite to create aesthetic repair work. We can also replace any metal fillings that you already have with the tooth coloured composite option if you are self-conscious of any noticeable fillings in your smile. Tooth coloured fillings are made of composite, a type of resin made from a mixture of glass and plastic. When hardened, composite looks just like dental enamel. It can be colour-matched to blend in perfectly with the natural tooth.

Why do I need a filling?

When the hard structure of the tooth is damaged, it leaves the vulnerable tissues inside vulnerable to infection. Cavities can also be painful so a filling will relieve any discomfort as well as saving the tooth from further harm.

If you think you have a cavity, arrange for an appointment so we can assess the tooth and then book in the treatment you need to fix the issue.

How do we fill a tooth?

We first numb the area with a local anaesthetic and remove the decayed part of the tooth. Then we prepare the surface with a special gel so the composite will bond to the natural tooth. Composite will only bond to a dry surface so the gel is cleaned off and the tooth dried.

We colour-match the composite to the tooth and then apply it in layers. The filling is moulded to match the shape of the tooth. The resin is hardened with a special bright light and it is then polished to look like a natural part of the tooth.

To prevent decay forming around the composite filling, it is important to brush at least twice a day and see your dentist for regular check-ups.
