Dental Fillings – Effective Restoration for Damaged Teeth

Dental Fillings

What Are Dental Fillings and Why Are They Needed?

Dental fillings are a common and effective treatment used to repair cavities and restore the integrity of a tooth. Fillings are necessary to prevent further decay and damage, and to restore the normal function and appearance of the tooth. At Paya Dental, we use high-quality materials to ensure your fillings are durable and blend seamlessly with your natural teeth.

What Is the Process for Getting a Dental Filling?

The process for receiving a dental filling at Paya Dental includes:

  • Examination: Our dentists will first examine the affected tooth and surrounding area.
  • Decay Removal: We remove any decay and clean the affected area thoroughly.
  • Filling Application: The filling material is then applied to the cavity and shaped to match the contours of your tooth.
  • Polishing: Finally, the filling is polished to ensure a smooth and comfortable finish.

What Types of Filling Materials Are Available?

At Paya Dental, we offer a variety of filling materials to suit different needs, including:

  • Composite Resins: Tooth-colored fillings that provide a natural appearance.
  • Amalgam: Durable and strong, ideal for filling cavities in the back teeth.
  • Gold Fillings: Known for their durability and strength.
  • Porcelain: Aesthetic and resistant to staining.

How Can You Ensure Your Fillings Last Longer?

To extend the life of your dental fillings, we recommend:

  • Maintaining good oral hygiene with regular brushing and flossing.
  • Avoiding hard or sticky foods that can damage the fillings.
  • Regular dental check-ups for maintenance and monitoring.
