Dental Restorations - Fillings

A filling restores the integrity of a tooth that’s damaged by either dental decay, chipped, cracked or fractured due to trauma. Dental restorations are required for:
  • Dental decay causing cavities
  • Worn down teeth
  • Abraded teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Fractured or broken teeth
  • Gaps between teeth that appear unsightly
  • Teeth with old damaged fillings
Composite restorations have a major advantage of being highly aesthetic and closely resemble natural tooth structure. Composite ‘bond’ to the tooth structure, making them more conservative and allows preservation of natural tooth structure.
Dental amalgam and Glass Ionomer Cement are other restorative materials used in certain situations.

At Karnik Dental Clinic, we discuss the possible options suited to your case and help you choose the best.

How are restorations placed?

Placing a dental restoration generally requires just a single sitting. If required, the tooth is anesthetised. The cavity is shaped so as to retain the dental filling material. In deeper cavities, a layer of protective base material may be placed below to filling to protect the sensitive nerve within. The filling is finished by polishing to a smooth finish.

After a dental filling there is generally no discomfort, expect some sensitivity to hot or cold in the first few days that subsides on its own.
