A filling is used to treat a small hole, or cavity, in a tooth. To repair a cavity, We help you removes the decayed tooth tissue and then fills the space with a filling material.

Why Filling is Important?

Tooth decay is damage to a tooth that can happen when harmful bacteria in your mouth make acids that attack the tooth enamel. This can lead to a small hole in a tooth, called a cavity. More severe decay can cause a large hole or even destruction of the entire tooth. If tooth decay is not treated, it can cause pain, infection, and even tooth loss.

Amalgam fillings

Amalgam is a silver mixture of different metals, such as copper, tin, and mercury. These fillings may be more appropriate for the back molars. The material is durable and lasts a long time.

Glass ionomer fillings

The material is tooth-colored and made of powdered glass that bonds with the teeth. These fillings release fluoride to help prevent further tooth decay.

Gold Filling

The material is an alloy of copper, gold, and other metals. These are the most durable fillings, lasting for 20 or more years.
