What is Dental Filling?

Dental filling is a therapeutic technique for numerous dental problems and cosmetic imperfections, where it is used by dentists as a replacement for decayed material or bacterial assembly in the cavity of the affected tooth, preserving the tooth and restoring its natural shape, beauty, and function without the need to lose or extract it. Filling processes rely on the concept of removing the decay that caused damage to the tooth cavity, sterilizing this cavity, and then placing fillings inside it.

The role of the filling is to fill all the spaces and holes in the damaged tooth cavity, preventing any chance for bacterial growth and reproduction, thus preventing decay. These fillings are made from different raw materials such as gold, silver, and various metals, or a resin mixture, or amalgam mixture containing mercury, silver, copper, tin, and zinc together.

Given the variety of raw materials from which the fillings are made, which results in different characteristics and properties for each type of these materials, fillings differ from each other in shape, color, hardness, and the functional tasks each filling can perform. Therefore, it is possible to mention the different types of fillings and the advantages and disadvantages of each type based on the mixture they consist of or are used in their manufacture, and the five types of fillings can be explained as follows:

  • Silver amalgam fillings: These fillings consist of a mixture of metals 50% silver, tin, zinc, copper, and 50% mercury, making them unsuitable for front teeth due to their appearance. These fillings are commonlyused, strong, and durable, lasting for years in the patient’s mouth. They are affected by temperature, which makes them prone to shrinkage during cold and expansion during heat, making them easily breakable, in addition to being cost-effective.
  • Ceramic fillings: Made from ceramic and porcelain together, this mixture gives them durability along with an aesthetic appearance, making them one of the most expensive types of fillings. These fillings are resistant to tooth decay and brittleness.
  • Composite fillings: Made from a mixture of resin and plastic, cured with blue light, they are the most commonly used type due to their aesthetic role. They not only treat dental problems but also maintain a seamless appearance due to their color matching with natural teeth. However, they do not last as long in the patient’s mouth, needing replacement every 5 to 10 years.
  • Gold fillings: These expensive fillings are made from pure gold material that does not rust or corrode, making them last up to 20 years without any damage, hence their unpopularity.
  • Glass ionomer fillings: Made from acrylic material, a type of glass that does not resemble the color of teeth, these fillings release fluoride that prevents tooth decay, making them suitable for children’s teeth who are still in the stage of exchanging their teeth. However, these fillings do not last long and wear out over time, enjoy the pure and healthy smile you deserve with our distinguished dental filling services at our Dental Center.

Steps of Dental Filling

The dental filling process targets cases suffering from decay, cracks in the tooth structure, or a broken part of the teeth, working to treat and repair their deformities. The filling step takes place during one or two sessions at most, and if there are health problems related to the rest of the mouth’s teeth or surrounding tissues, necessary medications should be taken and wait for complete healing before placing the filling inside the affected tooth cavity, and the filling process consists of several steps as follows:

  • Anesthetizing the affected area using local anesthesia or injecting the patient’s gum with an anesthesia syringe.
  • Drilling holes inside the damaged tooth cavity using a drilling tool.
  • Using a scraping tool to remove decayed material or any infection residues from inside the cavity, and this step can be applied more easily using a laser device.
  • Sterilizing the cavity using disinfectant solutions to ensure the elimination of any bacterial residues stuck on its walls.
  • In cases where decay reaches the root, protecting the nerve by installing a lining of glass ionomer or composite resin or other materials.
  • Placing the filling inside the cavity, making sure it is shaped and fitted to the cavity to prevent movement.
  • Leveling the tooth surface with the filling surface to get rid of any excess and protrusions, and you can learn more about cosmetic fillings for tooth gaps and their prices in Egypt by reading this article.
