Dental Fillings Restore Damaged Teeth

What are dental fillings?

A dental filling is a material used by your dentist in the treatment of many dental conditions. In tooth cavities, the fillings are used after removing the decayed part of your tooth to fill the tooth and protect it. They are also used to restore cracked and broken teeth in a simple process. To learn more about dental fillings, visit your Hamilton Square, NJ, family dentists, Dr. Polina Vaynblat and Dr. David Finkelstein of Kuser Family Dental.

What are the steps of the tooth filling process?

After performing the needed examinations and evaluating your teeth, your Hamilton Square, NJ, family dentists will start preparing you to receive the filling. First, your dentist will numb the area around the tooth to be filled using a local anesthetic. Then, using special instruments, the dentist will remove any tooth decay. Your dentist will skip that step when the filling is used to repair a cracked tooth, and there is no teeth decay. After that, your family dentist will start preparing the tooth for the filling by cleaning it thoroughly, roughening the tooth, and adding an adhesive. Once the tooth is ready, the family dentist will add the filling material, shape it to the desired result, remove any excess material, and polish the final restoration.

Post-procedure care

Following good oral hygiene by brushing twice a day with fluoride toothpaste and flossing at least once is necessary to keep the fillings healthy. Patients must also use an antibacterial mouthwash at least once a day to prevent the recurrence of tooth cavities. In addition to good oral hygiene practices, visiting your dentist regularly for cleanings and general dental examinations is important.
Visiting your dentist is necessary whenever you have any of the following situations:

  • Having a sensitive tooth
  • Feeling a sharp edge in the treated tooth
  • Feeling a crack in the filling
  • Missing a part of the filling
