Restore Decayed Teeth
Dental fillings are more than just a remedy; they’re a testament to modern dentistry’s ability to restore, rejuvenate, and revitalize one’s smile. Whether addressing a cavity or repairing a worn-down tooth, fillings play a pivotal role in maintaining the integrity and health of our teeth.
Understanding Dental Fillings
At the core of restorative dentistry, dental fillings are materials used to replace decayed portions of a tooth, restoring its function, structure, and appearance. Over the years, the materials and techniques have evolved, offering durable and aesthetically pleasing solutions tailored to individual needs.
Why Dental Fillings?
Teeth are constantly exposed to various factors that can lead to wear and decay. Fillings step in to:
- Combat Decay: Cavities, if left untreated, can grow, affecting deeper layers of the tooth and leading to severe pain and potential tooth loss.
- Restore Function: Fillings allow for the normal function of the tooth, ensuring you can eat and speak without discomfort.
- Prevent Further Damage: By sealing off spaces where bacteria can enter, fillings prevent further decay.
- Aesthetic Restoration: Modern fillings are designed to match the colour of your natural teeth, ensuring they blend seamlessly and enhance your smile.
Types of Dental Fillings
Dental fillings come in various types, each with its unique characteristics and benefits:
- Composite Fillings: Made of resin and finely ground glass particles, they can be colour-matched to your teeth, making them a popular choice for front teeth.
- Ceramic Fillings: Made of porcelain, they are both durable and aesthetically pleasing, resisting staining better than composite fillings.
- Gold Fillings: While more expensive, gold fillings are durable and can last over a decade.
