Patients often aren’t aware that there is an issue until they are experiencing a toothache. Unfortunately, it may be too late to restore the tooth with a simple tooth filling once there is a toothache. This is why your regular dental check-ups are so important.
What is a tooth filling ?
The types of fillings that are used include:
1. Composite Resin (white fillings)- These are the most placed fillings at Forster Court Dental. The filling colour can be matched to the colour of the tooth and can be used on front and back teeth to restore strength and aesthetics.
2. Amalgam (silver fillings)-This filling material was used for many years with great success. It is less commonly used today as it is less aesthetic than composite and can leave the tooth in a weak condition.
3. Porcelain or gold inlays- These fillings are custom made to fit your tooth and can be made in ceramic or gold. They will require 2 or more visits and are excellent filling choices for teeth that are badly damaged and need more strength than a filling that is done directly in the mouth.
What damage can a tooth filling repair?
What is the tooth filling procedure like?
The decayed or damaged area of the tooth will be carefully removed. The tooth will be disinfected and the filling material will be placed.
The amount of time that each patient will spend in the dentist chair will be based upon the severity of the damage and the size of the cavity.

I have had a number of procedures completed at Foster Court Dental Clinic and I would highly recommend this practice.
The staff are friendly and helpful and were happy to check my PRSI entitlements for treatments.
The dentist was very clear on what procedures were needed and the treatments were completed hassle-free and very professionally.
Amazing dental practice, I have been going here for 10 years and I only have good things to say. The dentists are extremely knowledgeable in their field and I always feel at ease going to the dentist or the hygienist. Would highly recommend Forster Court Dental Clinic.
I have being going to Forster Court Dental for 2 years and they are wonderful. A positive pain-free experience. Before going here I was very nervous about dentists but they put me at ease!
