What Are Tooth Fillings?

Tooth fillings are durable materials bonded onto a tooth. This dental treatment has preventive and restorative features. By sealing the holes and cracks, further damage is prevented and the teeth’s capacity is restored.

With tooth fillings, you can still function normally. Chewing and other mechanical functions of the teeth are not negatively affected.

Common Uses Of Tooth Fillings

Tooth fillings are used for the following dental problems:

  • Decay
  • Cracks
  • Fractures
  • Chips
  • Broken tooth
  • Small gaps

What Happens If The Dental Problem Is Disregarded?

If the above mentioned dental problems are disregarded, further inconvenience and damage are likely to follow. Your oral health is compromised and more dental issues such as swelling, pulpal and periodontal disease, and eventual tooth loss are likely to follow.

Benefits Of Tooth Fillings

There are many restorative options to choose from at True Dental Care Preston. Each dental treatment has its own benefits.

Tooth fillings have the following noteworthy benefits:

  • Prevent further decay
  • Return natural shape of tooth
  • Restore tooth’s strength
  • Match your natural teeth’s shade
  • Restore bite and chewing capacity
  • Fill gaps in between teeth
  • No mercury content (as opposed to amalgam fillings)

The Tooth Filling Procedure

The tooth filling procedure is quick and easy. Once it is established that you are an ideal candidate for the dental treatment, it only takes one dental appointment to have it.

At your appointment, your dentist will first clean your teeth, remove all the decayed parts, and condition the enamel. A dental dam is used to keep the target tooth dry during the process. A composite filling is placed and a curing light is used to harden it in place.

After the procedure, tooth sensitivity might be experienced. If the sensitivity continues after two weeks, consult your dentist.
