Dental fillings repair teeth damaged by decay or trauma. They help restore the chewing function and aesthetic appearance of your teeth.
A filling is a material used to treat decayed teeth. Treatment begins by numbing your teeth, gums and surrounding area. After a local anesthesia is given, the dentist will remove the decay using a dental handpiece or laser and then clean the area. After this, the fillings will be bonded to your teeth.
Fillings are made of different types of materials. This includes Amalgam, composite resin, ionomers, gold and ceramic. Discuss with your dentist which material is best for you. Although amalgam is the fastest and cheapest choice, the mercury toxicity in this material is quite controversial. Composite resins are tooth-colored fillings because it looks natural but it’s not durable like amalgam. Ionomers are used for small cavities. Gold is quite costly and involves a longer treatment process. Ceramics are tooth-colored fillings that resist stains but are also abrasive.
Simply observe proper oral hygiene by brushing, flossing, rinsing with mouthwash, and getting regular teeth cleaning. Avoid biting your nails and chewing hard food to prevent breakage.
Just like the dental practitioners in your home country, the dentists in Malaysia completed their degree and special trainings locally and internationally. They comply with industry standards set by organizations like Malaysian Dental Association and Malaysian Dental Council. A friendly staff supports them and assists patients coming from different countries.
Feel free to discuss your goals, budget, and preferences. Your dentist will explain and give you options. A customized treatment plan can also be created for you.
The cost of fillings depends on the type of material and the technology used by the clinic. Some clinics require two to three dental visits while others offer same day treatment, which is quite higher than the regular price. Fillings costs around USD $25.65 (CAD $33.41; AUD $33.65; NZD $37.67; £17.79). It’s cheap!
