Understanding Dental Fillings

Dental fillings are used to repair cavities and restore the tooth’s structure after damage from decay or injury. The procedure involves removing the decayed tooth material, cleaning the affected area, and then filling the cavity with a filling material. Fillings can be made from various materials, including composite resin, porcelain, amalgam or gold, each offering different benefits in terms of strength, appearance and cost.

The Dental Filling Process

The process for receiving a dental filling begins with a thorough examination to assess the extent of decay and determine the most appropriate filling material. Local anesthesia is applied to ensure comfort during the decay removal and filling procedure. Once the tooth is prepared, the chosen filling material is applied in layers, with each layer being cured or hardened before applying the next. The filling is then shaped to match the tooth’s natural contours and polished to a smooth finish, restoring the tooth’s function and appearance.
