A dental restoration or a filling is a material used to repair chipped, broken, or decayed teeth to restore function and esthetics. Decay is completely removed and the tooth is prepared for the filling to be inserted. At Give Dental we use white fillings also called composite resin fillings which are tooth colored material. Composite blends in with tooth enamel so your tooth will look natural and white. This procedure is done under local anesthesia. Following the appointment patients can eat and drink as soon as the anesthesia wears off which takes about an hour.
In some cases if the tooth is severely decayed or broken, a dental filling may not be sufficient to properly restore the tooth. In such cases, additional treatment is needed depending on the case. Therefore, it is highly recommended to treat decayed or broken teeth quickly while the tooth is still restorable.
Dental fillings are an excellent choice of treatment to restore broken and decayed teeth. The procedure is completed on the same day, is it pain free, and restores one’s natural white tooth color.
