What are What are Bridges & Crowns?

Bridges and crowns are time-tested dental restorations used to repair or replace damaged or missing teeth. A crown is a cap, custom-made to cover a damaged or treated tooth, restoring its shape, size, and strength. A bridge, on the other hand, fills the gap created by one or more missing teeth, anchored on either side by crowns. At Dr. Mogla’s MyDentist Chandigarh, we craft each bridge and crown with precision, utilizing durable materials that blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, restoring the aesthetics and function of your smile.

Tooth Filling for oral health needs

What is Dental Filling?

A dental filling is a common dental procedure used to repair minor tooth fractures, decay, or surface damage. When a tooth develops a cavity from decay, a dentist will remove the decayed material, clean the affected area, and then fill the cavity with a filling material. This process restores the tooth to its original shape and function, prevents further decay by eliminating spaces where bacteria can enter, and reduces tooth sensitivity by covering exposed dentin. The primary goals of dental filling are to restore the integrity and function of the tooth, maintain oral health, and prevent the progression of decay. It’s a straightforward, effective treatment for preserving a tooth that might otherwise need more extensive work or extraction.

Types of Dental Filling Materials

Dental fillings are a common dental procedure used to restore teeth damaged by decay back to their normal function and shape. When a dentist gives you a filling, they first remove the decayed tooth material, clean the affected area, and then fill the cleaned-out cavity with a filling material. This process helps prevent further decay by closing off spaces where bacteria can enter. Here are the materials and types of dental fillings that are commonly used:

Composite Resins (Tooth-Colored Fillings)

These fillings are designed to match the color of your teeth and are preferred for visible areas. Composite resins are durable and can be used for small-to-midsize restorations.

Dental Amalgam (Silver Fillings)

This is a durable material that is less expensive than other types. However, due to its dark color, it is more noticeable than resin and is usually not used in very visible areas.

Gold Fillings

These are made to order in a lab and then cemented into place. Gold inlays are well-tolerated by gum tissues and may last more than 20 years, making them a highly durable, although expensive, option.

Porcelain Fillings

Also called inlays or onlays, they are produced to order in a lab and then bonded to the tooth. They can be matched to the tooth’s color and resist staining. Porcelain restorations generally cover most of the tooth, making them somewhat comparable to crown in terms of cost.

Glass Ionomer

This type of filling is made from acrylic and a specific type of glass material. It releases fluoride to help protect teeth from further decay. However, it’s less durable than composite resin and more suitable for children’s teeth or non-load-bearing areas of the mouth.

Who Needs Dental Fillings?

Repairing Damaged Teeth

Fillings can be used to repair teeth that have been worn down from misuse (such as from nail-biting or tooth grinding) or to repair minor chips and cracks.

Closing Tooth Gaps

In some cases, composite resin can be used to close small gaps between teeth as a cost-effective cosmetic solution.

Tooth Decay Prevention

Some types of fillings, like glass ionomer, can release fluoride to help protect the tooth from further decay.

Tooth Decay and Cavities

The most common reason for needing a dental filling is due to cavities caused by tooth decay. When bacteria in the mouth produce acid that erodes the tooth enamel, it can lead to the formation of a cavity. Fillings are used to repair these cavities, restoring the tooth to its normal function and preventing further decay.

Worn Teeth

Teeth can become worn down from activities such as tooth grinding (bruxism), nail-biting, or using teeth to open things. This wear and tear can result in damage that may require repair with fillings to restore the tooth’s shape and prevent further wear or sensitivity.

Chipped or Broken Teeth

Minor chips or breaks in the teeth can often be repaired with dental fillings. This not only improves the appearance of the tooth but also restores its functionality and prevents further damage or decay in the affected area.

Tooth Erosion

Acidic foods and drinks, acid reflux, or certain eating disorders can cause tooth erosion—the loss of tooth enamel. In some cases, fillings may be used to cover and protect areas of erosion, helping to restore the tooth’s shape and protect the underlying dentin.

Closing Teeth Gaps

For small gaps between teeth, composite fillings can sometimes be applied to the sides of the teeth to reduce or close the gap as a cosmetic solution.

Replacing Old or Damaged Fillings

Over time, fillings can wear down, crack, or become loose, potentially allowing decay to set in beneath them. Replacing old or damaged fillings is crucial to maintain oral health and prevent further issues.

Your Tooth Filling FAQs, we answer

he procedure for dental fillings is completely pain-free. In case of hypersensitivity, we use local anesthesia to ensure your comfort during the treatment. Some patients might experience minor sensitivity or discomfort after the anesthesia wears off, but it typically diminishes quickly.
The lifespan of a dental filling can vary based on the material used, the size and location of the filling, and your oral hygiene practices. On average, amalgam fillings can last 10 to 15 years, however amalgam fillings are being replaced because of alleged adverse health effects and inferior aesthetic appearance while composite fillings may last 5 to 7 years or even longer. Regular dental check-ups and proper oral hygiene can extend the life of your fillings.
