The first thing that people notice about you is usually your smile. Having a beautiful smile can really improve both how you look and how you feel. Damaged teeth can have a negative effect on how you feel about yourself and how you present to others.
Your teeth are the only tissue in your body unable to repair themselves, which is why it’s sometimes necessary to have dental fillings to fix broken, chipped, damaged or decayed teeth. At Dental Fresh we make the process simple and cost-effective, so the perfect smile is never far away.
Should you require a tooth to be repaired there are options available depending on the location and type of damage you have sustained. Traditional Amalgam or silver fillings are hardwearing and cost effective. Composite or white fillings offer great cosmetic advantage, as they blend in to be largely indiscernible from your natural teeth. Composite fillings are often used to repair front teeth that are more visible, but more and more with the advancements in technology, composite fillings are being used for a wider variety of repairs, including hard working molars.
Composite fillings are now much stronger than they used to be, although they come at a higher cost than amalgam fillings. Most health funds rebate the equivalent cost of Amalgam fillings with the patient covering any residual costs for the Composite. Tooth fillings last around 7-10 years and are used for a variety of purposes, for example; to correct chipped, broken or cracked teeth, to fill spaces between teeth or to repair worn or decayed teeth.
If you’re worried about dental filling costs, then rest easy – we’ provide comprehensive and careful service at a very competitive price.
