Dental fillings can be an effective solution to fix teeth and a variety of dental problems. From cavities to chips and cracks, fillings are an essential dental procedure for maintaining good oral health. At Complete Smile Dental, we provide a wide variety of restorative and cosmetic services, including dental fillings.

What is a dental filling?

A dental filling is a restorative procedure that treats cavities caused by tooth decay, repairs fractured teeth, and restores worn teeth due to grinding or acid erosion. A filling helps restore the normal function and shape of the affected tooth, relieving pain and restoring the patient’s ability to chew. and eat normally.

How do dental fillings work?

The process begins with an examination and X-ray of your teeth, which helps the dentist determine whether or not a filling is necessary. If a filling is required, the dentist will use a drill to remove any decay from the affected area to clean and prepare the tooth. Then, the dentist will use a special material to fill the cavity and mold it to the correct shape and height to keep your original bite.

Composite resin filling

Composite resin fillings, also known as “white fillings, have become the standard in private dental practice. It is composed of a mixture of plastic and glass particles that can easily be matched to the colour of your teeth, making them virtually invisible. After the filling material has been placed, it will be shaped and polished to match the contours of your tooth. This helps restore the strength and function of your tooth while also giving it a natural-looking appearance.

What makes composite resin a better option compared to other materials?

While amalgam restorations still have their place in dentistry, the improved qualities of modern composite resins make them far more desirable than traditional silver amalgams. With superior aesthetics and structural integrity, composite resin has become the preferred filling option among patients over previous materials. Composite resin fillings are strong, durable, and aesthetically pleasing.
