Restorative Dental Treatment Options at Warrnambool Dental

You will be informed of the teeth fillings available to you and have the option of choosing which material is best accommodates your needs.

An experienced Warrnambool dentist will provide all of the necessary information and advise you of every material’s advantages, allergy concerns, appearance, durability, and costs.

By the time you choose your restorative filling, you should have a sound knowledge of your options and make a well-informed decision.

Your dentist can offer their professional opinion to help you choose regarding the size of the restoration, placement in the mouth, visibility, how long the material will last, and any budget concerns that you may have.

Single Tooth Fillings

One of the most common filling materials in the world is silver amalgam, which is an alloy made with silver, copper, zinc, tin, and mercury.

For over 160 years, silver amalgam has been used in dentistry for the purposes of restoration and treatment.

As successful as it is, some people find it too visible and unpleasant looking, while the use of mercury has been argued since it first came into use.

In spite of this, it is still widely popular, and many patients choose silver amalgam over newer materials.

Silver amalgam is generally considered safe but may cause an allergic reaction to metals in a small percentage of the population.

Make sure to discuss your allergy history and record it with your dentist before receiving any kind of restorative treatment.

What tooth replacement options do I have?
There are several replacement options available; some of them are fixed and some removable. Removable options are dentures. Fixed options include dental implants, crowns, bridges and fillings.
Why should I save my tooth? Can't I just have it extracted?
It’s most favourable to save the tooth. Tooth can always be pulled; however, if a replacement is not placed timely, the other teeth left will shift out of place.

Damaged, loosened, or missing tooth/teeth, can lead to tooth movement, shifting, and bite changes, which are permanent alterations with harmful effects.
