Service Description

A dental restoration or dental filling is a treatment to restore the function, integrity, and shape of missing tooth structures resulting from decay or cavities. What Are Dental Fillings? Dental fillings are a tried-and-true method for treating cavities and restoring damaged teeth to their full functionality. They are commonly used to repair teeth that have been affected by decay, trauma, or wear and tear. The procedure involves removing the decayed or damaged portion of the tooth and filling the resulting void with a dental material to restore its shape and function. Dental filling pain serves as a barrier to prevent further decay and can also enhance the appearance of your smile. Types of Dental Fillings At Ubuntu Dental, we offer various types of dental fillings to suit your individual needs: Amalgam Fillings: These are silver-colored fillings made from a combination of metals, including mercury, silver, tin, and copper. Amalgam fillings are durable and cost-effective, making them an excellent choice for back teeth. Composite Fillings: These tooth-colored fillings are made from a blend of resin and fine glass particles. They are aesthetically pleasing and a popular choice for front teeth, as they can be color-matched to your natural teeth. Ceramic Fillings: These fillings are crafted from porcelain and provide a natural appearance. They are highly stain-resistant and offer excellent durability. Gold Fillings: Gold fillings are composed of a mixture of gold and other metals. They are long-lasting and extremely durable. The Filling Process During your visit to Ubuntu Dental, our experienced dentists will start by numbing the area to ensure your comfort. Next, the decayed or damaged portion of the tooth will be carefully removed. Once the tooth is clean and free of debris, the filling material is applied and shaped to match the natural contours of your tooth. After the filling has been placed, our dentists will polish and smooth it to ensure a comfortable bite. You can expect your dental filling to last for many years, provided you maintain good oral hygiene and regular dental check-ups.
