Also, referred to as the dental restoration, dental fillings are used to restore the damaged tooth to prevent further decay. Dentists recommend a filling when tooth pain emerges from a tooth cavity.
Dentists at Nagem Clinic first analyse the extent of decay, remove it and then clean the affected area. Once the area is cleared, the cavity is filled with the filling material. There are several types of material used for filling a cavity. Most common of them are porcelain, composite, gold or silver. However, the fillings used at Nagem Dental Clinic are composite fillings. Composite fillings are versatile and can be matched to the colour of your teeth so as to make them look natural.
In most of the cases, the above procedure is employed for filling. However, if decay has affected a large portion of a tooth, a crown may be required. Also, if the decay has spread to the nerve, the root canal will be required.
