Lost a filling?
Need amalgam fillings removed?
That is pretty inconvenient.
It is important to get it fixed as soon as possible. If the nerve becomes exposed, it can set off a toothache!
This may prevent further damage and sort out any pain you might be feeling.
This could be as easy as a simple polish for very minor chipping, fillings for something a little bigger or more complex treatment for extensive breakdowns.
Next, we must work out what caused it…so it doesn’t happen again!
Possible causes include tooth decay, accidental trauma, and worst of all: teeth grinding and clenching!
If you have a broken tooth, don’t delay! It will only get worse with time!
Frequently Asked Questions

You are unlikely to feel pain, during a dental filling treatment. Tooth cavities do not start in areas of the tooth with nerves, so you shouldn’t feel pain during the procedure.
