Dental fillings can restore the integrity of a compromised tooth, to remove tooth decay, save a tooth from infection, or more involved and expensive procedure like Root Canal Treatment and relieve discomfort in a single appointment.

Dental Fillings

A dental restoration or dental fillings is a treatment to restore the function, integrity, and morphology of missing tooth structure resulting from caries or external trauma as well as to the replacement of such structure supported by dental implants. They are of two broad types—direct and indirect—and are further classified by location and size. A root canal filling, for example, is a restorative technique used to fill the space where the dental pulp normally resides.

Tooth Preparation

Dental Fillings

Restoring a tooth to good form and function requires two steps: (1) preparing the tooth for placement of restorative material or materials, and (2) placement of these materials. The process of preparation usually involves cutting the tooth with a rotary dental handpiece and dental burrs to make space for the planned restorative materials and to remove any dental decay or portions of the tooth that are structurally unsound. If permanent restoration cannot be carried out immediately after tooth preparation, temporary restoration may be performed. The prepared tooth, ready for placement of restorative materials, is generally called a tooth preparation. Materials used may be gold, amalgam, dental composites, glass ionomer cement, or porcelain, among others. Preparations may be intracoronal or extracoronal. Intracoronal preparations are those which serve to hold restorative material within the confines of the structure of the crown of a tooth.
