Restorative Dental Treatment (Fillings)

Tooth decay is the process in which the acids produced by bacteria in the mouth, as they digest sugar-containing food debris, dissolve the hard tissues of the tooth.

The treatment method for tooth decay depends on the stage of decay. In the early stages, when the decay is not yet causing pain or showing symptoms, it can be reversible. However, when the decay starts to erode the hard tissues of the tooth, a filling is necessary. Cavities that have not reached the nerve of the tooth can be treated with fillings. In modern dentistry, composite resins are preferred over amalgam (silver fillings), which used to be an older material choice. Composite resins offer a range of color options, allowing for fillings that match the natural color of the tooth.

For anterior teeth, a treatment called direct composite veneers can be used to address minor shape irregularities, decay, fractures, or diastema without the need for extensive prosthetic procedures. This treatment method allows for the preservation of natural tooth structure while achieving the desired aesthetic outcome. By using composite resin material, the dentist can sculpt and bond the veneers directly onto the tooth surface, providing a conservative and effective solution.
