FILLINGS & BONDING
Cavities. Sneaky things, cavities.
They can eat away at your tooth
may not even know it. This is because the outer enamel of a tooth has no
nerves. It is only when the cavity enters the underlying dentin that
the cavity may begin to feel sensitive.
A cavity weakens the tooth, causing it to fracture when biting down. It can attack an existing filling, making it very fragile.
How do you treat a cavity?
An Altona Gate Dental Filling will do
the trick. We remove the decay from the tooth, clean the infected area
and restore the tooth with a filling back to it’s normal shape and
We have a variety of filling materials
available, a composite being the most popular. An Altona Gate Dental
composite is a tooth colored filling that blends beautifully with your
natural tooth colour.
Cavities are not particularly fond of
fillings. We think they are great. By closing off spaces where bacteria
can enter, a filling helps prevent further decay and bigger problems
such as root canal or extraction.
