Tooth Fillings Auckland

Can you feel a hole in your tooth? 

Let our friendly team assist you with your enquiries.

Are you worried that your teeth may have holes or cavities? Do you feel pain when brushing your teeth or are you sensitive when eating hot and cold foods? You may have tooth decay and need to fill it. Dental filling helps restore teeth and relieve pain associated with cavities.

What is a Tooth Filling? 

Teeth can become damaged by caries caused by a combination of factors such as mouth bacteria, sugary food and drinks and poor dental hygiene. Overtime, these factors can weaken enamel, break down the teeth and cause a cavity.

Once a cavity has formed, the tooth will continue to decay and become increasingly painful until a dentist is able to treat it.

Depending on the level of damage to the tooth, a dentist may recommend a tooth filling to fill in the cavity, repairing the damage caused by the decay and preventing bacteria from attacking the cavity further.

If the decay is beyond repairable by a filling, your dentist may suggest a root canal to repair the tooth or a tooth extraction to remove the tooth completely.

Natural Look

White fillings preserve your tooth and look completely natural.

Preserve Your Tooth

By getting your dental cavity treated right away, you ensure you have healthy teeth many more years.

Lasting Smile

A white filling will match your normal teeth, so others will only notice your great smile.

Wonderful Team

Our team of dentists and dental technicians are dedicated to giving our patients the very best dental care possible.

Do you feel pain when brushing your teeth? Feel sensitive when having hot or cold drinks? Broken or decayed tooth? You may need a filling! Fillings are amongst the most common dental treatments and are a quick fix for your decayed or broken teeth. The idea behind a filling is to remove the decay that is causing sensitivity and to restore your teeth to a healthier state. If the decay is left untreated it can lead to a bigger and deeper cavity, meaning the decay can reach the nerves and cause immense pain. This will consequently result in an extraction or root canal of that tooth.

Signs you may need a filling

The three main symptoms which may lead you to believe you need a filling are:

A Broken Tooth

Sensitive to Cold or Hot Substances

Sensitive to Sugary Food or Drinks

Causes

Your teeth can experience decays or cavities for multiple reasons including mouth bacteria accumulation, poor dental hygiene and sugary food and drinks. These factors combined together weakens the enamel over time and can cause your teeth to break down or decay resulting in a cavity. If the cavity is left untreated the tooth will continue to decay until a dentist intervenes. If the decay reaches the nerve of your tooth, the decay can no longer be treated by a filling and will alternatively need to go through a root canal which is a more complicated and expensive procedure. Therefore, it is ideal to get your decay treated in the earlier stages.

Treatment

The treatment starts off with the dentist administering local anaesthesia to numb that area around the affected tooth to ensure the patient doesn’t feel any pain. The dentist then removes the decay from your tooth and prepares it for the filling. After this the filling material is laid and bonded to the tooth structure using a special light.

Types of Fillings

Composite White Filling

Composite fillings are one of the most popular filling types due to their strength and natural appearance. They tend to last a very long ( average of 7- 10 years) and can be matched to the exact colour of your surrounding teeth. These fillings blend in so well with the teeth that people often forget they had a stained or chipped tooth.

Advantages of composite white fillings are their natural appearance, their ability to bond weak teeth and they don’t require a lot of drilling of the natural tooth.

Gold Fillings

Some people prefer gold fillings for their appearance. They are also very strong and durable, lasts between 15- 30 years however, are less common nowadays.

Porcelain Filling

Porcelain fillings are also tooth coloured fillings and blend in well with your surrounding teeth. This type of filling is also very durable, resistant to staining and is the strongest type of filling but is also the most expensive. They can last for an average of 15 years.

Frequently asked Questions about Tooth Fillings

How much do fillings cost?

The price for filling starts from $180. The pricing is dependent on the tooth that has the decay and how big the decay is.

Are fillings painful?

During the procedure local anaesthesia is used to make the process pain free. However, after the procedure it is normal to experience some sensitivity once the anaesthesia has worn down but this sensitivity will go away in 1-2 days.

How long does it take?

It depends on the factors like filling material and the size of the decay. Most of the fillings take 20- 60 mins. Dentists can even perform two or more filling in a single visit if they are not complicated.

How to help my filling last longer?

Maintain good oral hygiene habits, brush twice a day and floss at least once. Visit your dentist regularly for checkups. Use fluoride toothpaste and mouthwash with a soft bristle brush .Avoid sugary, acidic or chewy food. Stick to a healthy diet to protect the teeth from further damage.

Had the horrifying experience of my front tooth just breaking completely off, I went to another dentist who quoted me $6000 for an implant..but he couldn't offer me any temporary replacement... there's no way I was walking around with no tooth for a week, googled implants and maxcare popped up with a deal of $3995. I called them they saw me straight away, I was given options but all came with the promise they could fix a temporary tooth.. they were friendly and really seemed to care..I walked out with my smile and dignity intact and will be back soon to get the implant.. couldn't recommend them more highly..great service.. amazing price

I only went to Maxcare Dental because I had a Grab One deal and it was across the road from my workplace. Normally I’ll never go into an establishment for Health Care unless it has been recommended to me AND I would never go into a Health Care establishment in Otahuhu either (personal choice).When I walked in, I was real surprised:1. It was clean and tidy (tick)2. Friendly staff (tick tick)3. Staff were professional, qualified and they knew what they were talking about and had been trained at a high level (tick tick tick)It ticked all the boxes for me. I have recommended Maxcare Dental to all my friends and colleagues (to their surprise lol). My wife has booked in to see Maxcare Dental and it’s now become my preferred choice when it comes to dental work!

The dental Clínic is outstanding with also excellent professional staff. I have been attended in 4 different Clinics before coming to this one and for sure this is the best. For those who fear going to the dentists my last 2 fillings I had here I suggested not to use anesthesia and I didn't feel any pain at all. They are really careful and have wonderful hands. Easy parking and online bookings.

I am a new patient and I thoroughly enjoy the friendly, welcoming service and affordable prices at Max care. I had several proceedures done to my teeth for tha past month and today I was very impressed and grateful that Dr Khan came in on her day off to accommodate me (shift worker)she has an extremely busy schedule but that blew me away!! I offered to pay extra but she said it was fine. I am recommending her to everyone I know she and her lovely staff pull out the red carpet treatment and make the whole experience all about you THANK YOU SO MUCH DR KHAN + MAXCARE

I went to the max care all frightened but was assured it will be painless. When I went there I was blown away by the relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff . I have changed my dentist to max care because they treated me so well and informed the procedure every step of the way. She was young beautiful and yet so knowledgeable . I completely trust her. The receptionist and the assistant nurse too were so Curtiss and friendly . They really know their stuff and work as a team . The place is clean, location is easy accessible and open 7 days . It’s great for working people , can visit in the weekends and there is plenty of parking . I have been to many dentists previously , but I really recommend Maxcare Dental. I give them 10/10 . They reminded me of my appointments . Max are provided me the service beyond my expectation. And I THANK YOU😃😃😃😃😃

Dr Tazeen is that rare kind of person that exudes professionalism but also is genuinely caring, and goes out of her way to advise you on what is best for your own personal dental health. In a situation where most of us are nervous and (with suction, etc in our mouths) unable to speak!) Dr Tazeen intuitively knows when to check in on you, and adjust any procedure to make you instantly more comfortable. The practice, in general, offers top quality work without the 'posh people' prices, and they stay away from sales pitches and hard-sells, while offering clear information and solid support. Highly recommended.

Dr Tazeen Khan, was very professional and so kind and thoughtful right from the start, I was super nervous in seeing a Dentist. I wanted to see a female Dentist, she put my worries at ease, cared about my feelings, she worked without any breaks and always che led to see how I was feeling. Dr Khan worked so fast and had everything done in the same day, she did moulds done all in one day and her assistant was very professional as well. I've never felt so cared for in such a kind and caring way. I would recommend her to everyone.

My wife and I both had work done at Maxcare Dental in Otahuhu and we were very pleased with the whole experience. The clinic looked very modern and clean. The receptionist was friendly and very helpful. The dentist was very professional and gave us great advise concerning care needed and after care. The cost was competive and reasonable but still a lot for a low income family. We did receive a slight discount which means alot as every cent counts. Overall, we are very satisfied with our experience, this is why we are back a second time. We'll done Maxcare Otahuhu.

I would like to express my gratitude for your wonderful dentist finding the infection that wasn't presenting on the 19th when I came for a review. I am very relieved now I returned so soon as I have been very unwell since the implant failure months ago and I am looking forward to becoming well again. I found his technique and skills outstanding and I will be referring people to your clinic to see him.I would also like to share that I thanked Lydia the dental assistant today. I have never thanked an assisting person before but she did an amazing job. I normally find suctioning extremely uncomfortable and usually the fluid still runs down the back of my throat causing me to gag. I would say she would be the best dental assistant I have ever experienced with excellent technique. Finally I would like to mention Anna she is always very friendly and helpful.I wanted to share my personal feeling toward your staff I encountered today and to let you be proud of them especially in the current difficult situation all New Zealanders and all businesses are facing.you have an outstanding Team working for you Rating 5/5

I have never enjoyed going to the dentist since young age and had struggled for a long time to find a dentist that I felt comfortable with until I visited Maxcare Dental. From the very first phone call with Anna at reception through to my visits with Dr Hassan Ahmed, they have shown sincere kindness and support throughout. They really do look after their customers and provide excellent work on your teeth! (really happy with mine!!). Will highly recommend them to all my family and friends.

After consulting multiple orthodontists, I decided to go ahead with Maxcare Dental. They were very reasonably priced, very close to my work and home and also open during weekends and not overly busy. I had my wedding planned for end of the year and all other orthodontists I consulted told me that they cant fix it within a year time but Dr Ramneek Kaur told me that she can do it. She booked me for adjustments every 2-3 weeks and I was off braces within 10 months with amazingly straight teeth. I couldn't be happier with the service I received from her, have exceeded my expectation in everyway. The staff is very friendly as well.
