Filling is done when the tooth is decayed or affected by cavity, if the tooth is chipped off or cracked.
Filling for Decayed Tooth
The procedure of treating the cavity means that the dentist is required to remove decay and then fill the tooth with another piece of suitable material. Due to the advancement of dental technology, it’s now possible to make choices from options for those clients who need a dental filling.
Available materials for filling:
Silver filling: Silver filling is a convention filling material used by dentist for years and is best for the molars as molars are not seen very easily.
Tooth coloured filling/Composite filling: A composite or tooth colored filling is used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks, fractures, etc. The decayed or affected portion of the tooth will be removed and then filled with a composite filling in no time. Nowadays, composite filling or white filling is much more stronger than the conventional silver filling and is much in use in cosmetic dentistry.
There are many types of filling materials available, each with their own advantages and disadvantages. You and your dentist can discuss the best options for restoring your teeth. Composite fillings, along with silver amalgam fillings, are the most widely used today. Because composite fillings are tooth colored, they can be closely matched to the color of existing teeth, and are more aesthetically suited for use in front teeth or the more visible areas of the teeth.
As with most dental restorations at our dental clinics, composite fillings are very durable, and will last many years, giving you a long lasting, beautiful smile.
Reasons for composite fillings:
- Chipped teeth
- Closing space between two teeth
- Cracked or broken teeth
- Decayed teeth
- Worn teeth
