What are Dental Fillings?
Dental decay and cavities are one of the most common dental problems caused due to unhealthy eating habits and lack of oral hygiene. When tooth decay is not treated, it gets worse and then you may have to undergo a root canal treatment or wear dental crowns. A dental filling is a safe restorative procedure that can effectively treat and cure dental decay. This treatment helps improve the functionality of your teeth and gums and is highly recommended for repairing damaged and fractured teeth.
Why Choose Dental White Fillings?
Dental fillings come in several materials like gold, silver, amalgam and composite resin. Composite resin (tooth coloured filling material) is the best choice because:
•It matches the colour of the teeth
•It does not look unsightly
•It strengthens your natural teeth
•It is not harmful to the gums
•It is durable and stain resistant
•It can be used for both front and rear teeth
•It is painless and easy to place
•It requires minimal removal of healthy tooth for its placement
Treatment Procedure at XL Smiles Dental Clinic
First step – The dentist evaluates the decayed tooth. While the treatment is painless, you may ask your dentist to administer local anaesthesia to numb the area around the tooth before removing the decay.
Second step – The surrounding area of the decayed tooth is prepared and cleansed, after which the tooth is isolated and the white filling is bonded in layers. These white fillings are hardened immediately after the treatment with the help of dental light.
The entire treatment procedure does not take more than one hour while giving you a beautiful natural smile that stays!
