When you have a chipped, cracked, worn, or decaying tooth, the most common and least-aggressive treatment option is to restore the tooth with a filling. Our dentists use fillings to repair and strengthen the natural teeth. We provide composite fillings because composite material is both durable and attractive, mimicking the look of a natural tooth. Dental fillings are the most common procedure we perform at Kler Dental Centre, so you can rest assured that you are in good hands from start to finish, whether you require one filling or several.
What to Expect from Dental Fillings
Dental fillings are a standard procedure performed by our dentists. Local anesthesia is used to ensure you are completely numb and comfortable before the procedure beings. Then, our dentists clean and prepare the tooth, before drilling and cleaning out the cavity. Once the space is clean, the cavity is filled with composite resin and shaped to match the contours of the natural tooth, so you can bite and eat comfortably.
The Benefits of Dental Fillings
Dental fillings help preserve and protect the affected tooth from further damage. Untreated tooth decay can cause further damage to the tooth, leading to more invasive procedures, such as tooth extraction, or even root canals. The sooner a filling is treated, the better the chance is of saving the natural tooth. If you notice dark spots on your teeth or feel tooth pain, call our dentists to set up an appointment.
