What are fillings?

Fillings are used to treat cavities and to repair cracked or broken teeth. They are used to fill the area on the tooth where it is lacking. In the case of tooth decay, our dentist will remove the decayed portion of the tooth, clean it, and replace it with filling. After this, shaping is done to ensure that the filling suits the contours of your teeth. We mostly use tooth-coloured filling and porcelain-fused-to-metal for our patients.

General Questions
How should you care for your fillings?

Maintaining good oral hygiene by brushing your teeth twice daily with a fluoride toothpaste, flossing, and visiting your dentist regularly helps keep your fillings in good condition. If your filling cracks or comes loose, the tooth will feel extremely sensitive and have a sharp edge to the touch. You should make an appointment with your dentist to fix it if this happens.
