An Overview of Dental Fillings

Dental fillings can be an important contributor to your overall dental health and are used to restore the anatomy of a tooth that has been damaged by trauma or dental decay. There are two procedures that your dentist can use when administering dental fillings: direct or indirect.

  • Direct fillings entail your dentist applying the filling material directly onto the affected tooth and can be fabricated from a variety of materials that include amalgam (silver fillings), composite resin (tooth-colored fillings), resin Ionomer and glass Ionomer.

  • Indirect fillings are usually manufactured separately in a dental laboratory before being cemented onto the tooth and are usually made from ceramic (porcelain), gold alloy or base metal alloy.

A local anaesthetic will be administered to numb the area around the tooth to be treated, allowing your dentist to remove any damaged or decayed parts. Once the tooth has been prepared, the filling is placed into position and is shaped, smoothed and polished to achieve a comfortable and optimal fit.
