If your tooth shows signs of decay, your Portway Dental Care dentist can help to stop it before any further damage is caused. Fillings are applied to small and developing cavities to restore your tooth back to its normal shape and prevent any further decay.
When you visit for a consultation, your dentist will use a small inspection mirror to assess the surfaces of your teeth, looking for signs of decay or little cracks and fissures. They will let you know as soon as they see anything that might require treatment. A small filling prevents further treatment by sealing the cavity, ensuring bacteria cannot get in and cause further decay.
The process is straightforward and often only requires one or two appointments. Once your dentist has assessed the area that requires treatment, they will clear out any decay before filling the clean cavity with the most appropriate material.
There are a number of different materials that can be used to fill a hole in your tooth. Indirect fillings are those that require a couple of visits to Portway Dental Care as the tooth is treated with a tailor-made filling that has to be crafted to your needs in a dental laboratory. Direct fillings can be applied at one appointment. White or tooth coloured options prove to be the most popular of these as they remain the quickest and most natural-looking.
Should you require a filling, your dentist will discuss the different options available and offer best advice on the most suitable for you.
