Dental Filling

Dental fillings are used to fix cavities and help restore a tooth’s original function as well as its shape after it has been damaged. We may recommend that you get fillings if you are suffering from dental caries or if the structure of your tooth has been compromised due to trauma.

By filling in the cracks and spaces in your teeth, our dentists can stop decay from getting worse and make sure your teeth stay healthy and work well. Only your dentists can determine if you have cavities that need to be filled. This usually happens during a check up where your dentists can examine the surfaces surrounding each tooth.

At Happy Dentistry, our dentists are experienced in providing quality tooth fillings to our patients. Consult with our dentists about getting dental fillings in Melbourne or contact us today at 03 9663 3401 or via WeChat to book your appointment.

What Can Dental Fillings Do For You?

A tooth or dental filling is a common early treatment for tooth decay. It may cause temporary tooth sensitivity, but fillings typically last many years before needing to be replaced.

At Happy Dentistry, we check the condition of your fillings on a regular basis during our routine dental check ups and cleans.

Types of Dental Fillings

There are different materials used for dental fillings. Many factors can influence which material will be used on your tooth. Our dentists will choose the right one based on your condition.

Composite Fillings

These are a popular solution made of resin. Composite resin is soft and malleable, so it can be shaped to fit the cavity comfortably. We typically use blue light on the composite to cure it or make it harder. The end result is an extremely durable filling designed to blend in with your natural teeth colour.


Perfect when creating onlays and inlays, porcelain works well with teeth restorations where a large amount of the natural tooth structure has been removed. Onlays and inlays preserve more natural tooth structure than a dental crown, plus they can reinforce a weakened tooth.

Gold Fillings

These are a long-lasting and durable alternative, but they are not used as frequently as silver amalgam because gold is more expensive and does not match the colour of natural teeth.

Amalgam Fillings

Made from a mix of metal alloys, amalgam used to be the industry standard but have since fallen out of favour because they contain trace levels of mercury. Amalgam is also a dark colour that stands out against the surrounding teeth.
