Frequently Asked Questions

How Dental Fillings Work?

  1. Removal of Decay: During the procedure, the dentist begins by removing the decayed or damaged portion of the tooth, leaving behind a clean, healthy surface.
  2. Filling Material: Various materials can be used for fillings, including composite resin, amalgam, gold, or porcelain. These materials are chosen based on factors like the location of the tooth, the extent of damage, and patient preference.
  3. Filling Placement: The selected filling material is carefully placed and shaped to restore the natural contour of the tooth, ensuring a proper bite and function.

Types of fillings

Composite Fillings: Made of tooth-colored resin, composite fillings blend seamlessly with the natural tooth color, providing a discreet and aesthetic solution.

Porcelain or Ceramic Fillings: These tooth-colored fillings offer excellent durability and are a popular choice for visible teeth due to their natural appearance.

Benefits of dental fillings

Restored Tooth Structure: Fillings help restore the strength and structure of the tooth, preventing further damage or decay.

Improved Functionality: Once placed, fillings restore the tooth's ability to bite and chew properly.

Aesthetic Enhancement: Tooth-colored fillings can blend seamlessly with natural teeth, enhancing the smile's appearance.
