Tooth Fillings

All The Facts You Need To Know!

Do you have a decayed tooth or a cavity? Then you might be wondering how to have it treated. Tooth fillings are the best way to save a tooth from a dental cavity. A tooth filling will help you get your tooth function back to normal.

And the best part?

It will even save your tooth from future decay!

Here are some questions you may have in mind before visiting your dentist to have your teeth filled:

Which tooth filling should I get?

Your dentist will examine your tooth and decide which kind of filling you would need. This will be based on:

  • the damage to the tooth,
  • the extent of repair,
  • where in the mouth you need the filling and
  • the cost of the tooth filling.

What is the procedure for a tooth filling?

Your dentist may take an X-ray to judge the extent of decay and damage to the tooth. He will then removed the decayed part and clean the affected area. The cleaned out cavity will then be filled with a filling material. Don’t worry, Fillings are completely painless!

Fillings close off the cavity area to the bacteria in your mouth. This will help prevent further decay.

Which type of fillings are available?

Filling materials include:

  • Tooth-colored fillings called composite resins or glass ionomer cement
  • A porcelain filling
  • A metal filling ( which may be gold or an amalgam )

 

 Your dentist will decide the type of filling best suited to you. However, tooth-colored fillings are the most common. They give you the natural appearance you desire. They are tough and can stand wear and tear over time as well. They don’t chip off easily. They are the ideal material to fill your anterior teeth.

Your posterior teeth may benefit from metal fillings. These fillings can cover a large cavity area. They are strong and can easily stand chewing forces and wear over time.

Now that you know what tooth fillings are, be sure to visit your dentist as soon as possible. So that the decay can be quickly managed with a filling and your smile is restored perfectly
