What is Dental Filling?

Nothing gives us more pleasure than being able to conserve your natural teeth and help it remain healthy for life. At Dr. Kochar’s, preservation of your teeth is our aim. This branch of specialization includes “fillings” in simple terms. Be it a chipped tooth, a decayed tooth or one with an old filling, we have a range of newest and most advanced materials to give you a filing that will help your tooth regain its lost health.

What Are The Types Of Dental Fillings?

If not managed properly, the cavity grows deeper into the dentin and eventually reaches the nerve of the tooth. There are two types of dental filling:

Silver Fillings

Earlier the trend was to have amalgam fillings (silver) or gold filling restorations. But they demand more of tooth removal and are susceptible to corrosion. With recent advances in dentistry, we have got other materials which are aesthetically appealing and require less tooth reduction.

Tooth Colored Fillings

These fillings were created as an alternative to traditional metal dental fillings. Tooth fillings colored to look like a natural tooth are known as Composite Resin Dental Fillings and are made of a plastic dental resin combined with glass particles. GIC is another tooth-colored material which releases small amounts of fluoride, which may help you if you often get cavities.

What is The Importance Of Dental Fillings?

Cavities are small holes in the teeth that form after a tooth has become permanently damaged. While cavities may seem like a major dental problem that can easily be repaired with a dental filling.
Dental fillings is a very important subject of dentistry. Once you leave the cavity untreated, you will experience:

  • Increased Sensitivity
  • Pain
  • Swelling
  • Root Canal
  • Crowning
  • Or, extraction

Hence, if your tooth decay has already started, it is the best to seek the dentist immediately.

What is the Procedures To Perform Dental Filling Treatment?
