Dental Fillings at Firs Premier

Fillings are used to repair a cavity in your tooth caused by decay.

There is a range of fillings available from Firs Premier depending on the location of the tooth requiring a filling. 

What type of filling will I have?

Fillings are made from a number of materials. Should you require a filling your dentist will offer you the most appropriate type of filling for your clinical (medical) needs. 

Fillings can be made of:

  • Amalgam (silver-coloured) – used for fillings on posterior (back) teeth. 
  • Composite (tooth-coloured) – used for anterior (front) teeth. 
  • Glass ionomer (tooth-coloured) – used on baby (first) teeth and occasionally on adult teeth. 

Fillings are placed into your tooth and sculpted to ensure the way you bite will not be altered after treatment. You must follow the care and advice recommended by your dentist so the filling is retained and your tooth remains healthy.

What happens if the damage requires more than a filling?

If the damage is more extensive and a filling is not suitable, then you may need an inlay or onlay. The damanged area is removed and rather than a standard filling, a laboratory will make a moulded filling, which is made to fit the tooth exactly. 

How much will it cost?

There is a range of fillings available and the price will depend on the type and size you require. Your dentist will discuss all of your options and related costs with you in your appointment.
