WHAT IS DENTAL FILLING AND WHAT ARE ITS ADVANTAGES
Dental fillings are dental restorations used to restore teeth that have been broken or have deteriorated. The procedure entails removing the tooth's decayed or damaged area before using the selected material to fill the ensuing cavity. By doing this, the decay is halted in its tracks and the tooth's functioning and appearance are restored.
- Prevents the Cavity from Expanding
Your dentist will remove the decaying portion of your tooth during the filling treatment. After the dentist has removed the decay and cleaned the area, a composite, which is a tooth colored filling material, will be applied in layers. The dentist will then shape and polish the final restoration.
Composite fillings may aid in strengthening your tooth's structural integrity.
- Reinforces Broken Teeth
Fillings can be done to fix a broken tooth. Teeth can fracture as a result of physical exertion, such as playing sports, accidents, or chewing on hard objects like ice or hard candy. As you become older, your teeth weaken and are more prone to fractures and chipping.
- Dental Fillings Can Enhance the Color of Your Teeth.
Teeth that are crooked or have significant discoloration can be covered with composite resin, to achieve a more uniform look.
