Dental Fillings Brisbane: What To Expect At Your Consultation?

The first step is of course a thorough assessment of your oral health so we can identify exactly what dental challenges you’re facing. We use state-of-the-art technology including intraoral scanners, digital x-rays or 3D CBCT x-rays (depending on your unique needs) and the Diagnocam which allows us to spot decay between teeth that might not be visible to the naked eye.

Once we’ve identified the extent of any damage to your teeth, we will discuss all your treatment options including dental fillings and crowns, the benefits and drawbacks of each option, and provide transparent pricing information for each option so you can make an informed decision about which treatment option is best for you.

Our dedicated team is committed to providing you with the highest quality dental care in a comfortable, judgement-free environment. Don't wait to restore your smile – contact us today to schedule a consultation!

Frequently Asked Questions 
About Dental Fillings Brisbane

General Information

What are the types of dental fillings?

The main types of dental fillings are amalgam (silver fillings), composite (tooth-coloured fillings), porcelain, and gold. The type chosen often depends on the location of the tooth, the cost, and the patient's preferences.

Do dental fillings have mercury?

Amalgam fillings, also known as silver fillings, do contain mercury. Whilst the amount is considered safe for adults and children over the age of six according to health agencies like the FDA and the ADA, we focus on offering better alternatives to our patients.

Can you get dental fillings on front teeth?

Yes, you can get dental fillings on front teeth. Composite resin fillings are often used for front teeth as they can be matched to the colour of your natural teeth.

Are dental fillings permanent?

While dental fillings are designed to last for many years, they aren't considered permanent as they may need to be replaced over time due to wear or decay.

Are dental fillings necessary?

Dental fillings are necessary to restore teeth damaged by decay and prevent further tooth decay. They help maintain the structure and functionality of the tooth. If you do not treat decay, it gets worse over time and you run the risk of developing painful infections or losing your tooth.

Can you get same day dental fillings?

Yes, most dental fillings can be completed in a single appointment.

Do toddlers get dental fillings?

If a toddler has tooth decay it can be treated with either a filling or a stainless-steel cap. At Today’s Dentistry we’re passionate about ensuring all our patients have positive dental experiences, and it’s especially important for children to feel safe and supported through any treatment they may require.


What's involved in a dental filling procedure?

A dental filling procedure usually involves numbing the area, removing the decayed part of the tooth, cleaning the area, and then filling it with the chosen material. The filling is then shaped and polished to fit your bite.

Do dental fillings hurt?

With modern anaesthetics, patients should feel no pain during the filling procedure. There may be some sensitivity or discomfort after the anaesthetic wears off, but it usually subsides after a few days.

How many dental fillings can be done at once?

The number of dental fillings that can be done at once depends on the size and location of the cavities, and the patient's overall health and comfort.

Can you do a dental filling between teeth?

Yes, a dental filling can be done between teeth if there is decay in that area.

Can you eat after getting a dental filling?

With composite fillings, you can eat as soon as the anaesthesia wears off. If you have an amalgam filling, you may be advised to wait at least a few hours before eating.

Difference between amalgam fillings vs composite fillings?

Amalgam fillings are silver and more durable but less aesthetic, while composite fillings are tooth-coloured and blend in with your natural teeth but may not last as long.

Difference between dental fillings vs crowns?

A dental filling is used to repair a smaller area of decay in a tooth, while a crown is used to cover and protect a tooth that is severely damaged or decayed.

Difference between dental filling vs root canal?

A dental filling is used when the decay has not reached the tooth's pulp. A root canal is needed when the tooth's pulp is infected and needs to be removed.

Issues / Challenges

Are dental fillings safe?

Dental fillings are considered safe for most people. However, some people may be allergic to certain types of fillings. Discuss any concerns with your dentist.

Can you get dental fillings during pregnancy?

Yes, it's safe to get dental fillings during pregnancy. Good dental care, including getting fillings, is important for the health of the mother and baby.

Can you get dental fillings while breastfeeding?

Yes, it's safe to get dental fillings while breastfeeding. Local anaesthetics, like those used in dental procedures, have been deemed safe for breastfeeding mothers.

what to do if a dental filling falls out?

If a dental filling falls out, contact your dentist right away. They can provide guidance on next steps and schedule an appointment to replace the filling. In the meantime, avoid chewing on the side of the lost filling and keep the area clean.

Do dental fillings cause sensitivity?

It's common to have some tooth sensitivity after getting a dental filling, especially to hot and cold. This sensitivity should lessen within a week or two. If it doesn't, contact your dentist.

Can dental fillings decay?

While the filling material itself doesn't decay, the tooth around the filling can. Regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups can help prevent decay around fillings.
