Tooth decay can ruin your smile and cause great damage in your mouth. Decay is one of the most common reasons for getting restorative dentistry treatment.
If your tooth is plagued by tooth decay, do not hesitate to call or visit your A Supa Smile dentist. Call in and check our options for restoring your teeth’s strength and beauty, including tooth fillings. Read on and learn more about tooth fillings at A Supa Smile.
What Are Tooth Fillings?
A tooth filling, as the name suggests, fills the holes in your teeth to restore their strength and capacity. Material is bonded to the teeth, trimmed, and shaped to achieve the desired result.
In the past, amalgam fillings have been used for this procedure. However, using modern dentistry techniques at A Supa Smile, tooth fillings are now tooth coloured. They blend with your natural teeth and are safer compared to amalgam.
Issues Solved By Tooth Fillings
As mentioned tooth decay is the most common reason for getting a tooth filling. But beyond that, tooth fillings address a number of other dental issues, including:
- Fractured tooth
- Gaps in between teeth
- Broken or cracked tooth
- Chipped tooth
Benefits Of Tooth Fillings
If the above-mentioned dental issues are left unattended, another dental issue could follow, such as a dental abscess leading to tooth extraction. Hence it is necessary to visit your dentist right away if you believe you need a filling. Take a look at some of the benefits of tooth fillings:
- Little tooth preparation
- Look and feel like your natural tooth
- Return shape and size of tooth
- Prevent further damage
The tooth filling procedure at A Supa Smile is fast and easy. The following are the steps we follow:
- Your dentist will prepare your tooth for the filling with a thorough cleaning and removal of decayed parts.
- To keep the tooth dry from saliva during the procedure, a dental dam is used.
- The tooth filling is applied, shaped, and hardened into place.
Tooth sensitivity may be felt for a few days after the procedure. If it lasts a week contact your dentist immediately.
