Our tooth filling procedure involves applying a local anaesthetic to the area, using an instrument to remove decay, and cleaning away bacteria and debris. We then place the filling material on the tooth and use a special light to harden it. Finally, we use a tool to shape the material so that it replicates the natural tooth and ensures there are no problems with bite.
Dental filling procedures can be uncomfortable for some people, but they are rarely painful. We inject a local anaesthetic into the targeted area, numbing sensations and allowing us to get the job done without causing distress. You may experience some mild sensitivity afterwards, but this is normal and the numbness from the anaesthetic will generally subside after several hours.
Our tooth filling cost in Adelaide varies depending on the number of fillings you need and the choice of dental filling material. The more fillings you need, the more you’ll need to pay for the procedure. The dental filling cost will also increase if you decide to use higher quality materials. A consultation will take your finances into account beforehand to determine the best solution for you.
