Dental Filling

Dental Filling

Dental Fillings have become a standard part of dental care since they restore a tooth that has suffered from decay or a cavity to its original condition. It is considered one of the most common procedures done. The aim is to preserve natural teeth while preventing further cavitation processes. There are different signs and manifestations where fillings can be required. These include :

  • The gap in your tooth
  • Black spots on the tooth
  • Food stuck between two adjacent teeth
  • Chipped or distorted tooth
  • Sensitivity to hot and
  • Cold food and drink
  • Single or different pits

  • Aesthetics -- The shade/color of the composite dental fillings can be closely matched to the color of existing teeth.
  • Bonding to tooth structure -- composite fillings chemically bond to the tooth structure, providing further support.
  • Versatility -- in addition to using it as a filling material for decay, composite fillings can also be used to repair chipped, broken, or worn teeth.
  • Tooth-sparing preparation -- sometimes less tooth structure needs to be removed compared with amalgam fillings when removing decay and preparing for the filling.
