Dental Filing

Transform Your Smile and Boost Your Confidence with Our Comprehensive Services

Descriptions

Dental fillings are one of the most common dental procedures performed today. They are used to repair teeth that have been damaged by decay, restoring them to their natural shape, size, and function. If you have a cavity, a cracked tooth, or a tooth that has been damaged by trauma, a dental filling may be the right choice for you.

What Are Dental Fillings Made Of?

Dental fillings can be made from a variety of materials, including amalgam, composite resin, gold, and ceramic. The material used for your filling will depend on several factors, including the location and size of the cavity, your personal preferences, and your budget.

Amalgam fillings are made from a combination of metals and are typically used for back teeth. They are durable, long-lasting, and relatively inexpensive.

Composite resin fillings are made from a tooth-colored material that is bonded to the tooth. They are often used for front teeth or other visible areas of the mouth, as they blend in seamlessly with the surrounding teeth.

Gold and ceramic fillings are less common, but they may be used in certain situations, such as for larger cavities or in patients who are allergic to other filling materials.

Why Do You Need a Dental Filling?

If you have a cavity, a dental filling is necessary to prevent further damage to the tooth. Left untreated, a cavity can grow larger and deeper, eventually leading to tooth decay, infection, and even tooth loss.

In addition to treating cavities, dental fillings may also be used to repair teeth that have been chipped or cracked, or to replace old or worn-out fillings.

What to Expect During a Dental Filling Procedure

If you need a dental filling, here is what you can expect during the procedure:

  1. Anesthesia: Before the procedure begins, your dentist will administer a local anesthetic to numb the area around the tooth.

  2. Removal of Decay: Next, the decayed portion of the tooth will be removed using a dental drill or laser.

  3. Preparation of the Tooth: Once the decay has been removed, the tooth will be cleaned and prepared for the filling material.

  4. Placement of the Filling: The filling material will be placed into the prepared cavity, and your dentist will shape and polish it to ensure a comfortable and natural-looking result.

  5. Post-Procedure Care: After the procedure is complete, your dentist will provide you with instructions for caring for your new filling, including recommendations for brushing, flossing, and eating.

Smile Brighter, Laugh Louder: Our Top-Notch Dental Clinic is Here to Help

Our clinic offers a wide range of dental services, including general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, and dental implant services.

A dental implant is a small, screw-shaped post that is surgically placed in the jawbone to replace a missing tooth root. Once the implant is in place, a dental crown is attached to it, creating a natural-looking replacement tooth.

The length of the dental implant process depends on several factors, including the number of implants needed, the condition of the patient's teeth and gums, and the patient's overall health. Typically, the process takes several months, but our dentist can give you a more accurate timeline based on your individual needs.

To determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants, you will need to schedule a consultation with our dentist. During the consultation, our dentist will examine your teeth, gums, and jawbone to determine if dental implants are the best option for you.

The dental implant process involves a surgical procedure, so there may be some discomfort during the healing process. However, our dentist will provide you with pain medication and instructions for managing any discomfort.

Dental implants are designed to last a lifetime with proper care and maintenance. Regular dental checkups and good oral hygiene habits can help ensure the longevity of your dental implants.

Our clinic offers a range of cosmetic dental procedures, including teeth whitening, veneers, and Invisalign.

The cost of cosmetic dental procedures varies depending on the type of procedure and the individual needs of the patient. Our dentist can provide you with a cost estimate during your consultation.

During your first visit to our clinic, our dentist will perform a comprehensive oral examination and discuss any dental concerns you may have. Our dentist may also take x-rays or other diagnostic images to better understand your dental health. Based on your examination, our dentist will create a personalized treatment plan to address any issues and achieve your dental goals.

You can schedule an appointment at our clinic by calling us at +91 767 660 2695 or by filling out our online appointment request form. Our friendly staff will work with you to find a convenient appointment time that fits your schedule.

I had been to Lotus Dental Hub with a severe toothache and sensitivity. I met Dr. Poojitha - the senior most doctor here. She made me understand when should a Root Canal Treatment be performed and when should a tooth extraction be done. She explained this to me patiently. Under her guidance, Dr. Nandini performed RCT on one of my teeth. Throughout the procedure, she was very gentle and compassionate. She made me feel relaxed and comfortable throughout the procedure. Dr. Athulya Vijayan performed RCT too and thereafter fixed the teeth crowns following which I started developing mouth ulcers. She cleaned the ulcers and then, prescribed a gel to be applied on it. Dr. Athulya was very humble and stayed calm through out the procedures. She also gave me time to relax after which, she continued with the procedure. Depending on the severity of your condition, the doctors here call you personally to find about your health conditions too. The doctors I met here are very good and also they always greet you with a smile. They also tend to follow up with their patients to ensure their comfort. Thank you for your spectacular service!
