Filling Options:

Our filling options include plastic resin and long-term, more durable ceramic fillings. Plastic fillings are a fantastic option for most children, as tooth decay isn’t too substantial. Ceramic fillings are a longer lasting option that we 3D mill in-house from scans of the mouth. Ultimately, we’ll recommend the best option for your child based on the extent of the damage, their age and your budget. We’ll also evaluate whether there are behaviours or oral health habits likely to be causing tooth decay that need addressing.

We use an advanced computer-controlled numbing system that slowly injects local anaesthetic with a smaller needle, so your children don’t feel the numbing process and aren’t intimidated by a large needle. Further, ceramic fillings can be scanned, made and fitted on the same day using our state of the art technology; ceramic filling procedures at dental facilities without this equipment can take up to two weeks while the filling is made at an external laboratory.

Comfortable Environment:

We understand that going to the dentist can be a daunting experience for many children and even some adults. To counteract this, our dental office environment is upbeat and friendly, and we do as much as we can to minimise the pain and scariness of dental work for children. Some of the things we do to make the dental experience more enjoyable for children include:

  • Putting Netflix or TV on the monitor
  • Having friendly chats with them instead of just mum and dad
  • Stopping and asking how they’re feeling
  • Seeking alternative ways (e.g. happy gas)
  • Essential oil diffusion

We pride ourselves on making dental procedures as gentle as possible. This is especially important when working with children to instil confidence in going to the dentist and keeping their teeth clean. Naturally, all fillings and restorations come with a numbing agent unless requested otherwise.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
