Benefits of Smile Designing
What Are Cavities?
Cavities or caries or tooth decay are the damaged areas in your teeth that result in tiny holes. Cavities are caused by several factors including, unhygienic oral health, bacteria growth in the mouth, eating sweets, sugary drinks, frequent snacking, and other reasons.
Dental Fillings for Cavities
Dental fillings are used to fill the cavities in the teeth. Before filling the tiny openings in your teeth, dentists first remove the decayed portion of your teeth and then fill it with the filling.
We also use fillings to repair the cracked, broken, and worn teeth.
What Are the Different Types of Filling Materials Are Available?
At Hyderabad Smiles Advanced Dental Hospitals, we have:
- Composite Fillings
- Laser Fillings
- Tooth-Colored Fillings
Depending on the severity of the damage, location, and cost, we recommend the best filling for your case. You get to choose the filling material as per your liking.
Composite fillings are tooth-colored material that matches your natural tooth color. It is hard to detect these fillings and are aesthetically more appealing. Composite fillings are used to cover the front teeth gaps or imperfections.
Composite fillings, also called plastic or white fillings, are made with powdered glass and plastic resin. Composite fillings are durable but are not permanent and will have to be replaced at some point in time.
Dentists at Hyderabad Smiles use the Laser technique to detect cavities and kill the bacteria situated deep in the teeth without any local anesthesia, needles, and drilling.
Tooth-colored fillings match the color of your natural teeth and are used for front teeth are other visible parts of your teeth. We can use these fillings to support the tooth structure and to repair broken and chipped teeth.
After cleaning the decayed tooth, the tooth-colored filling is applied layer-by-layer. Next, a special light is used on the area to cure and harden it. Finally, the excess filling is trimmed and polished for the final restoration of the teeth.
