Checking the teeth

A filling attempts to restore the shape and function of the affected tooth by ‘filling’ the missing tooth structure. Loss of tooth structure is caused mainly by dental decay or occasionally trauma to the tooth.

At Yamanto Dental, Ipswich we only use tooth coloured fillings (dental composites). In the past amalgam (silver) fillings were used. However, technology has advanced to allow us to provide a more aesthetically pleasing, strong and durable restoration.

Our dentists at Yamanto Dental strive to make your filling appointment comfortable and painless. Our surgeries are equipped with roof mounted televisions with most Foxtel channels so you can sit back and watch your favourite shows while the Dentist works away
