Restorative filling

A dental restoration refers to the process of dental filling with a restorative material that restores and enhances function and morphology of a missing structure of a tooth. The tooth structural loss can usually lead to external trauma that can contribute towards greater damage. The structure can be lost during aesthetic preparations and other surgical operations and can be restored through dental filling. The restorative filling material can also be used to replace the missing tooth structure and support dental implants.

  • Composite Resin: Composite has been around for around 60 years and is presently the most commonly utilized restorative material. Its favorable elements are its appearance, and its capacity to attach to the tooth firmly giving a long lasting result. This restorative treatment has a permanent life span.

Types of Fillings


Amalgam

Is a dental filling material used to fill cavities caused by tooth decay. It has been used for more than 150 years in hundreds of millions of patients.It is a mixture of metals, consisting of liquid mercury and a powdered alloy composed of silver.It is also known as “silver fillings” because of their silver-like appearance.Amalgam fillings are strong and long-lasting, so they are less likely to break than some other types of fillings. It is least expensive type of filling material.


Composite resin

Composite resin or tooth colored fillings provide good durability and resistance to fracture in small to mid size fillings that need to withstand moderate pressure from the constant stress of chewing.They can be used on either front or back teeth. They are good choice for people who prefer that their fillings look more natural.

Whitening toothpastes

You can dramatically decrease your risk of cavities and other dental diseases simply by:

  • brushing your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste
  • flossing daily
  • eating a balanced diet
  • visiting the dentist regularly

Inlays:

Are used to treat teeth that have decay or damage lying within their indented top surfaces, between the cusps of the teeth. They can also be used to replace old or damaged metal fillings.

Onlays

It is a laboratory fabricated prosthetic that fits inside and over a portion of a tooth.It is used when a filling is going to be too large,causing the potential for fracture. Onlays are also used if a patient does not want to replace a larger filling as often,as onlays are made with a more durable material and are bonded to the tooth for a long service life.When onlays are done properly and with proper continued home care that includes daily brushing, and flossing, an onlay should last 15-30 years.
