Restorative Fillings

What Are Restorative Fillings?

Tooth decay is the primary cause of toothache. The infection in the tooth that results from the decay causes pain and sensitivity. The tooth becomes painful and difficult to chew. If left untreated, tooth decay can lead to further damage of the tooth and eventually tooth loss.

In a perfect world, teeth wouldn’t decay, and in a perfect world, there wouldn’t be any need for restorative fillings. However, we live in the real world and not everyone can avoid decay and toothaches. Restorative fillings are tooth-colored fillings that are used to fill small holes or cracks in teeth that are the result of decay, tooth fractures, or other damage to the tooth.

Restore The Natural Luster
Of Teeth

When teeth lose their natural luster and color, they can also lose their structural integrity. The result is tooth decay and discoloration. Restorative fillings restore the natural luster of teeth and prevent further tooth decay. These restorative fillings are used in cases where decay has affected the chewing surface, the underlying tooth structure, or both. Until the decay is removed and the tooth restored, it is essential to restore the integrity of the tooth’s chewing surface and underlying tooth structure, which leads to a reduction in the risk of tooth decay.
