Tooth Fillings

A Quick and Natural-looking Fix

Fillings are a fast and effective way to fix cavities, chipped teeth, discolored teeth, and even worn teeth. The high-quality materials and advanced techniques available today can help create long-lasting restorations for such cosmetic issues.

Traditional black/silver metal fillings have now been replaced with composite resin that blend in perfectly with the natural tooth color.


Why Will I Need A Filling?

Cavities or decayed teeth are fairly common even with a good oral hygiene routine. Genetics, food habits, and improper oral hygiene are the main causes of caries. Fixing cavities quickly is vital as decay is a progressing condition.

A cavity, once formed, needs to be cleaned using dental instruments at the clinic. Then, composite filling or ceramic onlays/inlays are used to cover the cavity and restore the natural look of the tooth.

Other conditions that require the use of fillings

  • Worn teeth caused by clenching, hard brushing, or teeth grinding over a prolonged period of time.

  • Broken or chipped teeth due to falls or biting down on hard foods. If neglected, these minor issues can weaken the tooth structure and cause serious problems.

  • Discolored patches on teeth that can be fixed using white fillings. Other options include veneers, crowns, or teeth whitening.
