What are Dental Fillings?

Dental fillings are among the most common and effective restorative dental treatments to repair teeth damaged by decay, cavities, or minor fractures. These fillings are typically made of durable materials such as composite resin, porcelain, or amalgam and are designed to restore the tooth's structure, function, and aesthetics. By filling in the areas of decay or damage, dental fillings help prevent further tooth deterioration and maintain overall oral health.

Why Choose Dental Fillings?

Dental fillings offer several advantages, making them a preferred choice for addressing tooth decay and damage. They are a conservative treatment option, requiring minimal removal of healthy tooth structure compared to other restorative procedures like dental crowns. Secondly, dental fillings are versatile and can be color-matched to the natural shade of your teeth, ensuring a seamless and natural-looking smile. Moreover, they are durable and can withstand regular chewing forces, providing long-lasting protection for your teeth.

Dental Fillings Procedure

Dental Fillings typically begin with the dentist administering local anesthesia to numb the area around the affected tooth, ensuring a comfortable experience for the patient. The decayed or damaged portion of the tooth is then carefully removed using specialized dental tools. Once the tooth is cleaned and prepared, the chosen filling material is applied in layers and hardened using a special light. The dentist will then shape and polish the filling to ensure a perfect fit and a natural appearance.

Am I a candidate?

Dental fillings suit people with small to medium-sized cavities, chipped teeth, or minor fractures. We will evaluate your oral health and determine if you qualify for fillings during a comprehensive dental examination. In cases of extensive decay or structural damage, alternative treatments like dental crowns or inlays/onlays are recommended for optimal results.

Post Treatment Care

After receiving dental fillings, it is essential to follow proper post-treatment care instructions to maintain the longevity and effectiveness of the restoration. You may experience some sensitivity in the treated tooth for a short period, which is normal and should subside within a few days. Avoid chewing on hard or sticky foods immediately after the procedure to prevent damage to the filling. Maintain good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing regularly and attending regular dental check-ups. Dental fillings can serve you well for many years, providing a healthy and confident smile.
