Effective Solutions for Tooth Decay and Damage

Teeth Fillings

Tooth decay (dental caries) causes destruction of teeth leading to development of cavities. A mixture of inadequate brushing, presence of dietary sugar on the teeth and the action of bacteria causes these cavities on the teeth. Initially, there may be no symptoms but over time, the teeth may become sensitive, painful and may eventually be lost if not treated.

Tooth-coloured fillings help to stop the decay process and eliminate the defects in the teeth where the bacteria hide and multiply due to difficulty in cleansing.

Frequently Asked Questions

Your questions on tooth fillings answered by an expert.

What are dental fillings made of?
Dental fillings are typically made of materials such as composite resin, porcelain, or amalgam (a mixture of metals). The choice of material depends on factors like the location and extent of the decay, aesthetic considerations, and patient preferences.
How long do dental fillings last?
The lifespan of a dental filling can vary depending on factors like the material used, the size of the filling, and oral hygiene practices. On average, composite resin fillings can last 5-7 years, while amalgam fillings can last 10-15 years or more with proper care.
Are dental fillings painful?
The process of receiving a dental filling is typically painless. Before the procedure, the dentist will numb the area around the tooth using a local anesthetic, ensuring minimal discomfort during the filling placement. After the procedure, some patients may experience temporary sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures, which usually subsides within a few days.
How long does it take to get a dental filling?
The time required to receive a dental filling depends on the size and location of the cavity. In most cases, a filling can be placed within a single dental visit, typically taking 30 minutes to an hour. However, larger or more complex fillings may require additional time or multiple visits.
Can dental fillings be replaced?
Yes, dental fillings can be replaced if they become worn, damaged, or develop new decay around them. Regular dental check-ups allow your dentist to monitor the condition of your fillings and determine if any replacements are necessary to maintain your oral health and the longevity of your dental work.
