Most people have experienced cavities or a chipped tooth. Fillings restore and rehabilitate the affected tooth. Fillings also reduce further tooth decay. The procedure of fillings is usually painless and involves a short recovery time.
To fill in a cavity, the dentist removes any decayed portion, ensure the area is fully cleaned and seal the region with a filling material. Fillings can be made of a variety of materials. At Vogue Dental Studios, we offer both composite and porcelain fillings.
Composite fillings are tooth colored fillings done in one appointment. If you require multiple fillings, we do recommend spreading out these appointments to avoid the discomfort of being in the chair for so long. The dentist will be able to match your filling to a shade similar to your tooth to ensure that it does not look out of place. Composite fillings often lasts 5-7 years and may need replacing.
Porcelain fillings are made of porcelain. Taking advantage of our in house CEREC technology, this can be done in a single appointment. The dentist will prepare your tooth and remove the decay. We would then take a 3D scan and begin the design process to mill your restoration with a porcelain block to prepare for cementation. Porcelain fillings are very strong and durable, lasting upwards of 20+ years.
We accept all private health funds. While this procedure is usually covered, the coverage level varies depending on the plan. Upon consultation, an itemised break down will be provided to you, which can be used to check with your health fund.
