Fillings in Split

The Ultimate Guide to Fillings in Split

Last fact-checked: 2 April 2020

Visit a dentist while you’re on holiday to maintain dental health and save money. Dental fillings in Split, Croatia cost a fraction of the price at home, so the short time away from your holiday will be well worth it knowing you’re taking care of your dental health as well as saving money.

Sure—we know that if you’re going on holiday you don’t really want to be thinking about going to the dentist. But there are many people that do. Private dental care is so expensive across Europe, and with public national health services unable to cope with demand, thousands are going without the care they need.

Preventive measures, such as regular check-ups with a dentist and treatments like professional teeth cleaning and teeth fillings, are extremely important in maintaining dental health as they provide an early system for identifying problems and treating them.

Why Are Dental Fillings So Important to Dental Health?

As a first-line preventive care dental treatment, dental fillings are a way of preserving teeth that have succumbed to decay. Decay is caused by acid-producing bacteria present in our mouths all the time. The acid they excrete erodes teeth, which is why it is so important to keep your mouth as clean as you can.

Although the most common use of a tooth filling is to fill the resulting cavity in the tooth once the decay is removed, fillings can also be used to repair broken or damaged teeth. They are important in preserving the form and function of your teeth, as well as preventing more serious treatments, such as a root canal.

What Is the Procedure for a Filling? How Long Will it Take?

A dental filling procedure is typically carried out within minutes, but it may take up to an hour as your dentist will probably want to give your mouth a thorough examination, as well as take some x-rays to help assess the extent of the decay. The dentist will talk you through their findings and the procedure and discuss with you the type of material you would like for the filling. These include:

● Ceramic Fillings. Usually made of porcelain and tooth-coloured, but expensive

● Composite Fillings. Also known as resin fillings, these are a combination of durable materials that are colour-matched to your tooth.

● Metal Fillings. Silver or gold are the most common metals in fillings and are the most durable of all the materials, although their appearance is not to everyone’s taste.

● Amalgam. Probably the most common filling material. It is hard-wearing but not aesthetically pleasing to the majority of people. It also contains mercury, which has recently stirred up some safety concerns.

Once the filling material has been agreed upon, a local anaesthetic will be used to numb the area around the tooth being treated. The dentist will begin to remove the decayed matter from the tooth, cleaning the resulting cavity and then applying the filling material. The filling material takes a few minutes to harden, and then your dentist can smooth, shape and polish it to complete the procedure.
