More About Fillings


Fillings are used to replace decayed portions of teeth that may be broken, cracked or affected by cavities. Without such replacements, decayed teeth portions could cause toothache, sharp throbbing pain, or sensitivity to hot/cold food and beverages. Tooth fillings relieve you of these kinds of pain and prevent teeth decay and infections.  

With modern technology, patients can aesthetically restore their natural smile, prevent fractures and chew food with ease by getting new tooth fillings or replacing existing ones. Tooth fillings are a durable and natural-looking option for dealing with cavities and improving tooth functionalities.

 

If you’ve experienced relatively minor damage to your teeth due to a cavity, tooth fillings will replace your decayed and damaged tooth materials. They will protect your teeth from further decay and reduce sensitivity by covering areas that are missing their protective enamel.

If your teeth are hurting or you think you have a cavity, schedule an appointment with us so we can put together a treatment plan to ease and fix your pain.

 


Common Questions


What happens when a dentist fills a cavity?

The dentist starts by removing any of the decaying and dead tooth enamel that cannot be saved with a small drill, and then cleans out the cavity to prepare it for filling. They then place the filling material into the cavity, and finish by cleaning and polishing the tooth.

What is the difference between temporary and permanent fillings?

Temporary fillings are generally recommended in cases where multiple sessions are required to design and cast a permanent filling. Since walking around with an open cavity is dangerous for your oral health, dentists will use a temporary filling to bridge the gap in time.
