A filling is a material which is placed inside or on the surface of a tooth which has a cavity, is worn or fractured.
Without fillings, it is possible for bacteria to damage teeth and penetrate the microscopic tubes which travel to the nerve. This may lead to toothache, dental infections and eventually tooth loss.
Here at the Kishore Dental clinic, we only use tooth coloured (white filling) material for all of our restorations. The filling material we use is a world leader in the industry, which has been developed for restorations with the toughness and beauty of natural teeth. This allows us to produce natural-looking fillings, while helping to protect our patient's teeth.
When to take treatment?
If your tooth is sore and the pain just won’t go away, you could have a cavity. This pain will only get worse over time and the only way to make it stop is by getting the cavity filled.
While fillings don’t usually require emergency dental care, there are some rare instances when you need to see your dentist immediately. If you have any of the following symptoms, reach to us at kishore dental clinic.
- Severe toothache
- A toothache that lasts more than two days
- A toothache with fever or pain in your ear
- Severe pain when drinking cold beverages
- Pain in a tooth that has an old filling
