Modern dentistry has allowed us to combine beauty as well as strength when filling teeth. With composite resins and other modern materials, dental restorations are close to their original strength and appearance. Our patient’s comfort is always the main priority of the dental team, leading to a comfortable experience.
Fillings (restorations) are used to replace tooth structure that is decayed. They are also used to repair fractured, broken, or severely worn teeth.
Composite fillings look great aesthetically since they are available in natural shades matching the colour of your teeth . We match them as closely as possible to your tooth colour, making them virtually undetectable to the eye. Made of durable plastic and glass particles, these fillings bond to the existing tooth structure restoring a natural contour, creating a better seal and increasing its strength. After the decay in your tooth has been cleaned out, a cleansing gel is applied to the area. The next step is a bonding solution, followed the composite filling material, which is then hardened for a few seconds using a high-intensity blue light. The filling is shaped to ensure comfort. In some cases, Our dentists recommend an inlay or an onlay (partial crown). Those restorations are made in a dental laboratory after the dentist has taken a tooth impression. The final placement of inlay, onlay or a crown is usually made during a second visit.
Fillings do not last forever so it is essential that you visit your dentist regularly for further examinations. They can develop cracks or simply wear down due to chewing forces. Your dentist will monitor the integrity of your fillings during regular exams and will recommend replacing a filling if a problem is detected.
