Dental Fillings


Dental filling is one of the most common procedure we perform on a daily basis. The most common reason we do fillings are:
– Dental decay

– Broken or chipped tooth

– Cosmetic dentistry


We can do fillings with difference materials, but not limited to:
– Composite resin – or commonly known as white fillings

– Amalgam – the silver filling which Craigieburn Dental Gallery seldom does

– Ceramic – if done in ceramic instead of filling it would be called onlay or inlay. This material offers significantly better longevity than other types of fillings

– Gold – not commonly used these days

However if the area that needs to be filled is very large or the tooth in question already has a large area of filling on it already, tooth will then start to become brittle and a full crown may be a better long term solution.
