Tooth decay is caused by bacteria in your mouth that feed off the food and drink you take in. These bacterias create a hole. These holes are called cavities. These cavities need to be filled for enjoying good dental health. A tooth filling is a form of dental restoration which helps repair the damage caused by tooth decay and prolongs the life of the tooth. Dental fillings are an effective way to repair the damage of tooth decay
There are various different tooth filling materials that we, at tooth and care, use according to the type of filling in locations of Maitland. For a white tooth filling, our dentists typically use a tooth-coloured material. Many of these dental adhesives are the same as those used to attach crowns, bridges and veneers. The types are as follows -
Amalgam (silver) fillings
Composite resin fillings
Glass ionomer fillings
The procedure of tooth filling varies slightly according to the type of filling. Before filling cavities, our dentist numbs your teeth primarily focusing on the tooth with cavities, gums and surrounding skin to avoid and lessen discomfort during the procedure. Next, he drills out the decay in the tooth and replaces it with a filling. This process only takes a few minutes. Finally, our expert shapes and polishes the tooth that has undergone the filling to give it a natural appearance.
