Fix your cavities with quick and painless tooth fillings in Adelaide
Let Perfect Smile restore your teeth with our latest tooth filling treatment technology.
The health of your mouth is vital to leading a happy, pain-free life. Cavities are one of the most common dental issues, and the good news is that this means we have treated a lot of them.
However, cavities also cause severe toothache, discomfort, and even infection and tooth decay if left untreated. That’s why it’s so important to go and see the dentist (on top of your regular checkups and cleans) if you start noticing these symptoms.
Fillings seal any holes in your teeth and thereby prevent further decay and protect against harmful infections. Not only do fillings alleviate current pain, but they can also prevent future fillings from developing.
Don’t wait until a cavity becomes a larger issue – visit Perfect Smile in Adelaide for necessary fillings — as well as all your general dentistry requirements — and enjoy optimal oral health.

Frequently Asked Questions
A dental filling is a procedure that involves repairing a damaged or decayed tooth by filling the affected area with a dental material. This material helps to restore the strength and appearance of the tooth.
There are several types of dental fillings, including composite, silver amalgam, gold, porcelain, and glass ionomer. Each type has its own unique characteristics and benefits.
We do use amalgam/silver material – we are a non amalgam practice since 1986
The procedure for a dental filling typically involves the following steps: numbing the area around the tooth, removing the decayed or damaged tissue, cleaning the affected area, and filling the void with the dental material.
Most people do not experience significant pain during a dental filling. Your dentist will use a local anesthetic to numb the area around the tooth, making the procedure relatively pain-free.
The lifespan of a dental filling depends on several factors, including the type of material used, the size of the filling, and your oral hygiene habits. On average, dental fillings can last anywhere from 5 to 15 years, but with proper care and regular dental check-ups, they can last much longer.
