Dental Fillings and Their Purpose

Dental fillings are crafted substances used to fill cavities or holes in the tooth structure. Despite the resilience of enamel, our teeth’s protective layer, issues like dental caries and trauma can lead to damage. Dental caries, a progressive ailment, results in enamel breakdown, causing pain. Our practice offers restorative tooth fillings to prevent such consequences and fortify the tooth structure.

Common signs for teeth fillings include:

  • Tooth decay: Halting deterioration and restoring affected teeth.
  • Chipped teeth: Repairing minor chips, restoring shape and integrity.
  • Spaces between teeth: Closing gaps for enhanced aesthetics and preventing food impaction.
  • Broken or fractured teeth: Providing strength and protection.
  • Root caries: Addressing cavities on exposed tooth roots, common in older adults.
  • Worn-out teeth: Restoring functionality and appearance.
  • Replacing old fillings: Ensuring ongoing tooth health and structural integrity.
  • Root-canal-treated teeth: Sealing and strengthening post-treatment.

Questions About Dental Fillings

Types of Dental Fillings

Following a comprehensive oral exam, we tailor dental restoration options to your unique needs. Our offerings include:

  • Amalgam: Exceptionally strong but limited due to its metallic appearance and other drawbacks.
  • Composite resin: Tooth-colored and moldable to match natural tooth anatomy.
  • Ceramic: Aesthetically pleasing with a close resemblance to natural teeth.
  • Glass ionomer: Releases fluoride but less durable compared to other options.

Dental Filling Process at Trinity Dental Centers

After a thorough oral exam and X-rays, if signs of decay are present, we administer local anesthesia for comfort. Using a small drilling device, we remove damaged portions, rinse, and dry the area before placing the chosen dental filling. Finishing touches ensure a seamless blend with your teeth.

Tooth decay progresses slowly, often beginning with white spots on the enamel. As it advances, you may experience pain, sensitivity, or difficulty biting. Early intervention with dental fillings is crucial to limit the spread of decay.

Recovery After Dental Fillings

Dental fillings bounce back pretty quickly, no big deal. Once that numbing feeling wears off, your teeth might be a bit sensitive, but trust us, it’s usually gone by the end of the day. To play it safe, switch sides when you chew and give hot or cold stuff a little break for a few days.

Keep your smile in check by brushing and flossing like a champ to kick plaque to the curb. Oh, and heads up – filled teeth can be sneaky and get reinfected, so make sure you’re keeping up with your oral hygiene game. Your pearly whites will thank you!
