What are dental fillings?

Dental fillings are a procedure of corrective dentistry with an aim of repairing the minimal tooth cracking, cavities or discredited surfaces of the teeth. The most common materials around are amalgam/silver fillings or tooth colored fillings. Depending on factors such as aesthetics, the severity of decay, and the patient’s oral hygiene habits, your dentist may advice you to choose one type of material over another.

Advantages of Dental Fillings:

Dental Fillings are preferred when your teeth are not fully damaged. Hence, with the help of this procedure, they may restore 85-90% of the original strength of the tooth. There is no fixed location for their use. They can be used for rear or front teeth because they do not affect the aesthetics of your gums.

Undergoing the procedure of dental fillings is a very simple process and you can expect little to no sensitivity. You won’t need more than one visit to the dental clinic. However if you are undergoing multiple fillings then you might have to visit clinic more than once. Should you require any special counseling about the dental fillings, you may contact a Dentist in Singapore at any of our branches.

Alternate to Dental Fillings?          

In more extensive decay or when most of the tooth has broken down, your dentist may in fact recommend that you look at other alternatives such as Crowns or any other suitable procedures.
