Dental fillings are a solution to damaged teeth, usually to fill cavities or teeth that have decayed. They are made from various materials and restore the tooth to its natural state. This makes the tooth fully functional and prevents further damage or decay from reoccurring.
There are several factors to consider when deciding on the material for a filling. Dr Borman will assess the damage and the extent of the repair needed.
There are two types of dental fillings available:
The procedure for dental filling is non-invasive and simple. Dr Borman will ensure you are comfortable and talk you through the entire process.
First, Dr Borman will physically examine your mouth and identify the tooth or teeth that require a filling. The next step is to remove any leftover decay and prepare the tooth. If needed, Dr Borman will numb the area with local anaesthesia, remove the decayed tooth structure and repair the tooth with white filling material, also known as composite. Finally, he will adjust the filling to make it as comfortable as possible when biting and then finish it off by smoothing any rough edges.
