Dental Fillings Make Your Teeth Strong & Healthy

Dental Fillings are used to treat the holes in teeth caused by tooth decay. They can also be placed on top of existing fillings to make them look more natural. Fillings can also be used to restore teeth that have been broken or structurally damaged.

What Are Dental Fillings?

Dental Fillings are used to treat many issues which can occur in teeth. From fixing the holes in teeth caused by tooth decay to fixing old fillings with new decay, or to improving the appearance of broken or structurally damaged teeth, dental fillings serve many purposes. 

Why Are Dental Fillings Important?

Teeth can require dental fillings for many reasons, including dental caries (i.e. cavities or decay), external trauma, developmental defects, and/or esthetic concerns. Dental caries is the most common reason teeth require restorations.
 
Tooth decay occurs due to bacteria in our mouths, which converts the sugar we consume into acid. This acid then breaks down our external tooth structure (enamel), causing a small hole to form. This hole allows bacteria to infiltrate into the tooth’s underlayer (i.e. dentin) and allow the decay to spread.
 
If left untreated, decay will increase in size and can result in possible pain, infection of the tooth’s pulp (i.e. nerve), or loss of a tooth. The sooner decay is treated, the easier it generally is to fix, and the smaller the chance is that the pulp will become infected.

Filling a dental cavity is important because it prevents tooth damage from continuing and it protects your smile from other potential problems such as tooth decay spreading to other teeth and causing discoloration.

Types Of Fillings

A variety of materials can be used for fillings, but we mainly use composite resin (i.e. white fillings) as they are more aesthetically pleasing, require less drilling of tooth structure, and are typically less sensitive after placement. Other materials include Amalgam (i.e. silver fillings), Porcelain, and temporary filling materials.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

Composite Fillings

Composite is the most popular choice for dental fillings and is great for those who don't want their fillings to show. Made out of a resin material, composite fillings bond with your tooth structure to replace any damaged areas. This material can be used on all teeth (i.e. front and back), has good durability, and can be very aesthetically pleasing.

Porcelain Fillings

Porcelain is a high-tech ceramic that has strong qualities and doesn't stain. Generally more expensive than composite materials because they may require the use of a dental laboratory or specialized computer-generated technology to create them; however, this also means they are more durable.

Glass Ionomer Fillings

Glass ionomer is a tooth color filling material that's frequently used in dentistry. It adheres to the surface of a tooth and releases fluoride, which aids in the prevention of decay. As they don’t last as long as composite fillings, they are generally used for temporary fillings.

Metal Fillings

Amalgam Fillings

A classic “silver” filling has been in use for more than 100 years! Amalgam is an alloy made up of many metals. Amalgam fillings are generally very strong and can last a long time with proper oral care.

What Are the Benefits of Dental Fillings?

  • Restoring teeth that have been structurally damaged
  • Preventing tooth decay & tooth damage
  • Protecting your smile from further damage and the risk of infection
  • Adding stability to unstable teeth
  • Creating a more aesthetically-pleasing smile
  • Making your smile look brighter and whiter
  • Less cost than a tooth extraction or replacing your tooth with an implant, bridge, or crown.

What To Expect After A Filling

After your dental filling has been placed, it is normal to experience some sensitivity in the tooth to hot and cold. This sensitivity generally resolves after two to three weeks.
 
Your bite may also feel different after the filling has been placed asit can be hard to tell if you are biting correctly while you are anesthetized. This is common and can be corrected by a follow-up appointment with your dentist to adjust the filling to ensure you are biting properly.
 
You can continue to eat all types of foods and beverages after a filling has been placed, however, your dentist will provide you with specific instructions to follow depending on the material used in your filling.
