Treating decay with fillings at Bupa Dental
When a tooth becomes damaged from decay, the decay will continue to damage more of the tooth unless action is taken. Fillings repair the damage and stop more bacteria from entering the tooth.
Fillings have come a long way over the years. Better materials like composite resin and porcelain can match the colour of your natural tooth so they are less visible, unlike amalgam or gold fillings. With modern anesthetics, having a filling put in can be virtually painless.
It’s also important to look after your filling as they usually last around 12 years. Practising good dental hygiene will keep your filling in good condition and prevent further decay and the need for more fillings. If you think you need a filling due to decay or you need an existing filling replaced, book an appointment with your local Bupa Dental clinic today.
