Dental fillings are one of the most commonly performed restorative procedures.white filling in Lahore According to Science Daily, the average American has three fillings. One in four people has 11 or more fillings. Fillings are ubiquitous because this treatment is affordable, versatile and highly effective for restoring teeth after cavities are removed.
There are different types of fillings available to restore teeth
But Dr Karl Jobst uses white filling in Lahore, also known as composite fillings or tooth-coloured fillings. These natural-looking fillings blend seamlessly with your natural tooth colour and gloss. Many of our patients can’t see where their fillings begin or end because composite resin looks so natural.
Since most of us will need to have fillings placed at some point, we’re giving you this overview of white fillings so you can understand the important aspects of the treatment and placement process.
What are dental fillings?
Fillings are the least invasive restorative treatment. There is no one basic material for fillings. What all fillings have in common is that they use a flexible material to fill in a part of the tooth that has lost its natural tooth structure, often as a result of caries treatment.
Fillings ‘fill in’ areas of your tooth, allowing you to restore oral health, restore dental balance and reduce the risk of future dental problems. Fillings are very affordable, but unfortunately they don’t last forever.
What are fillings used for?
The most common use of white fillings is to restore the strength and structure of teeth after cavity treatment. To treat a cavity, the decayed tooth structure must be removed. The treatment restores the health of the oral cavity but leaves the treated tooth vulnerable to further tooth damage.
After a more invasive restorative treatment, you may receive a pre-shaped filling called an inlay or onlay. After root canal therapy or removal of a large tooth lesion, a dental crown may be placed. The crown completely covers the tooth with a ceramic cap that protects the bottom tooth white filling in Lahore
What are my options for dental fillings?
Fillings fall into two main categories: metal and composite resin. Metal fillings are made of gold or silver alloy (a mixture of metals and mercury). Composite resin is a biologically compatible mixture of plastic and silica (glass). Silica gives white fillings a reflective property surprisingly similar to enamel.
How long have white fillings been around?
Various types of metal amalgam fillings have been in use for centuries. Composite resins were first introduced in the 1960s. The biosobic version quickly became popular because there was no need for mercury in the resin. Composite resin also offers better cosmetic results. In addition, composite resins have an average lifetime equal to or longer than metal amalgam fillings.
White fillings continued to become more popular. Further refinement of the filling base material and the addition of etching to create a stronger bond with the tooth surface led to a reliable and effective treatment option that Dr. Jobst and others use every day.
Benefits of white fillings
Tooth-colored fillings have become the restorative of choice for a number of reasons.
Lower risk of sensitivity
Composite resin does not transmit heat as quickly as metal. This property allows patients to avoid unpleasant sensitivity when eating hot or cold foods and drinks. Many people with silver fillings need to be careful when drinking hot tea or eating ice. White fillings insulate your teeth against temperature fluctuations.
White fillings are also safer. Metal can get into your mouth and bloodstream over time. Silver amalgam contains traces of mercury, a known neurotoxin. White fillings are biocompatible and do not contain dangerous metals or chemicals.
White fillings do not swell or shrink as a result of temperature fluctuations. Silver amalgam fillings swell and shrink due to temperature fluctuations Gums Treatment in Lahore
White fillings are cosmetically attractive. Composite resins are even used in a popular cosmetic dental procedure called tooth bonding. White fillings can be fabricated to match the colour of the surrounding tooth structure. The material is incredibly pliable before it hardens, which means Dr Jobst can fuse the fillings into the structure of the adjacent teeth.
