Composite Fillings Offer the Solution for a Natural-Looking Smile
One of the most common chronic health conditions across the globe is tooth decay. However, you can have your tooth decay treated with dental fillings. Smile Club offers natural-looking, affordable dental filling services that are attractive, strong, and long-lasting.
Do I Need a Dental Filling?
The first sign that a filling is needed is often a toothache or tooth sensitivity, which can indicate decay or a fracture. At Smile Club, we will evaluate your teeth and determine the most appropriate restorative treatment for your situation. We recommend dental fillings to restore teeth that have decayed and formed cavities or teeth that have been damaged with chips or cracks.
Some people with tooth decay or trauma are not good candidates for fillings, because the tooth does not have enough structure. In this case, we may recommend inlay or onlays, a root canal, or a dental implant. Root canals and dental implants are a type of restorative dentistry, and following the procedure, the tooth is capped with a dental crown.
The Process of Getting a Dental Filling
Just as the name implies, a dental filling involves filling a hole, or cavity, in a tooth that has formed from tooth decay or trauma. The decay will be removed before the filling is placed, which restores the normal anatomy of the tooth. The restoration will be practically invisible to the naked eye because the composite resin material we use is shade-matched to blend in with your natural tooth.
The process of getting a dental filling includes:
- Isolating the tooth to keep it dry from saliva
- Removing tooth decay
- Applying etchant and bonding agents
- Applying a composite resin
- Using a special light to harden the material
- Shaping the composite reason to resemble a natural tooth
- Smoothing and polishing the restoration
