What is a Dental Filling
A dental filling is a way of restoring a tooth that's been damaged by decay. Not only does the filling look aesthetically pleasing, but by closing the gap, additional decay is prevented, and the tooth is strengthened. It's among the most frequent treatments carried out in a dentist office.
The kind of dental filling our dentists may use to fix your tooth will be based on your dental needs and budget. Dental fillings can be made from gold, porcelain, silver amalgam, plastic or composite resin.
What to Expect from a Dental Filling Procedure
The very first step in the process is using a local anesthetic to numb the area around the tooth. Any tooth decay is then removed by drilling into the tooth with a dentist's drill. The tooth is then prepared for the filling by etching the tooth with acid gel. Following the dental etching, the cleaned and prepared cavity is filled with the desired filling substance.
Some fillings need to be first made in a dental lab and cannot be fitted during the initial dental visit. In this situation, a temporary filling will be placed to protect the tooth while the permanent filling is created.
What to Expect After a Dental Filling
Patients may anticipate sensitivity in their teeth following the procedure. The local anesthetic given prior to the process may still take time to wear off after the filling is placed, which might prevent you from having the ability to drink or eat properly. Your gums may also have become swollen during the process and might be sensitive for a little while after. You could also feel that your bite differs and it'll take a couple of days to become accustomed to the new addition to the surface of your teeth.
You may be unhappy with the appearance of the silver-mercury fillings in your mouth. Not only are there questions around how silver-mercury fillings may affect your overall health, but over time, old fillings leak leading to cavities forming underneath them. This can cause serious damage to the structure of your teeth, leading to cracked teeth and/or the need for root canal treatment.
