Repair Tooth Damage with Dental Fillings
If you have tooth damage, it is best to address it without delay. Whether it is a small cavity or a loss of structure due to wear and tear, trauma or injury, it can easily be repaired with dental fillings.
More on Dental Fillings
Dental fillings are medically approved fillers to fill up a cavity, or to make up for missing tooth structure. In other words, they essentially fill the gap caused due to tooth decay or loss of structure, including cracked and broken teeth. Dental fillings are a wonderful way to correct minor tooth damage, and prevent further damage.
Dental fillings can be made of different materials, such as silver amalgam, glass ionomer, porcelain and other metals. But here at Victor Crescent Dental Clinic, we use high quality composite resin dental fillings at our Berwick clinic, which give the appearance of your natural teeth; so that no one can tell that you’ve had a dental filling.
What You Can Expect During a Dental Filling
A dental filling would only be suitable for filling minor cavities and fractures, and would not be the best choice for severely damaged teeth. Even before we recommend a dental filling, our dentist would usually check for the degree of decay and loss of structure. Sometimes, this might also require an X-Ray, to get a precise idea.
The affected tooth is then prepared for the filling, by first removing the decayed part with specific tools. The tooth is then cleaned and dried, to make it ready for the dental filling. Our dentist will then carefully proceed to fill the tooth using high quality fillers. Once this is completed, the tooth will then be polished into shape for the final finishing.
Usually, dental fillings require just one session at our Berwick clinic. Most dental fillings tend to last for a decade or more. However, their longevity will also depend on many factors, such as your eating habits, your dental hygiene, and other habits like teeth grinding and so on. We ensure to share all the necessary information with our patients to help them get the most out of their dental fillings, including detailed instructions for post treatment care.
