To treat a cavity, broken, or chipped teeth, dental fillings are used to restore your teeth’s shape to their natural state. Fillings are usually made of gold, porcelain, silver amalgam, resin composite, and plastic. Depending on where the tooth is located in the patient’s mouth, white fillings may be suggested.
To place the filling, all decay is cleaned from the tooth before a dentist puts a bonding material inside of the hole. The filling is applied in thin layers, with each layer being hardened with the help of a special light. After the last layer is placed, the dentist will shape the filling to make it look and feel natural to the patient.
Old black Silver/Amalgam Fillings can start leaking after a few years and cause decay under those fillings and eventually lead to more problems. These old Silver Fillings can be easily replaced with white tooth-colored fillings and make the teeth more Aesthetic, Functional and Long Lasting. Any fractured front/back teeth can easily be fixed with white fillings and restored back to their original shape and size.
