Tooth Colored Fillings

Dental caries, also known as tooth decay or cavity, is a disease wherein bacterial processes damage hard tooth structure. They are caused due to acids produced by bacteria present in our mouths, on contact with remnants of food particles.

  • What

    In the initial stages, dental cavities are not symptomatic, but can be diagnosed clinically during a dental check up. When the caries spreads to dentin( the second tooth layer beneath the enamel), there might be increased sensitivity. A Dental filling is a way to restore teeth that are damaged by decay back to their normal function and shape. When treating a carious lesion, first the decayed tooth material is removed, cleaned and finally, the cavity is filled with a filling material.

    There are a number of filling materials available to help you restore your cavities.The most preferable filling material available is tooth colored bonded Composite filling material. They are highly esthetic filling material. There are lot of other materials available to help choose as per individual needs. Silver amalgam fillings have been the oldest way of filling a tooth. We, at Thyme Dental, strictly do not use any mercury based silver amalgam fillings,as Mercury is a highly toxic metal associated with damage to the kidneys,and also mercury poisoning in rare cases.

  • Need For Filling Cavities

    If left untreated, cavities can grow in size and often lead to pain, thus, requiring more invasive treatment.Getting timely treatment is crucial to avoid this kind of situation.

    Prevention of decay is always a better option and can be done by following a good oral hygiene program and visiting your dentist every six months.
