Dental filling


A dental filling is a common dental procedure used to repair a cavity or hole in a tooth caused by decay. During the procedure, the dentist removes the decayed portion of the tooth and then fills the space with a dental material such as amalgam, composite resin, gold, or ceramic.  The Bryan Dental in Bryan and College Station area is conveniently located near to the Briarcrest Walmart is the best option available and, is the best  expert  near you  and best Dental Care  for the children, near you and for any type of  Dental problem

Amalgam Fillings: Made from a combination of metals including silver, tin, copper, and mercury. Amalgam fillings are known for their durability and resistance to wear, making them suitable for use in areas of the mouth that undergo heavy chewing.

Composite Resin Fillings: These fillings are made of a tooth-colored mixture of plastic and glass. They are popular for their aesthetic appeal as they can be matched to the color of the natural teeth, making them less noticeable. Composite fillings bond directly to the tooth surface, which can help to strengthen the tooth structure.

Gold Fillings: These fillings are made of gold alloy and are known for their durability and longevity. Gold fillings require multiple visits to the dentist as they are custom-made in a dental laboratory.

Ceramic Fillings: Also known as porcelain fillings, ceramic fillings are made of tooth-colored porcelain material. They are highly resistant to staining and can closely mimic the appearance of natural teeth. Ceramic fillings are often preferred for front teeth or visible areas of the mouth.

Glass Ionomer Fillings: These fillings are made of a mixture of acrylic and glass powders. They release fluoride, which can help prevent further decay. Glass ionomer fillings are commonly used for small cavities, as they are not as durable as other filling materials.

Composite-Resin Ionomer Fillings: A combination of glass ionomer and composite resin materials. They offer some of the benefits of both materials, such as fluoride release and tooth-colored appearance.

The choice of filling material depends on factors such as the location and size of the cavity, the patient's oral health needs, aesthetic preferences, and budget. Your dentist will discuss the options with you and recommend the most suitable type of filling for your specific situation.
