Dental fillings are used to restore a tooth which has been damaged by decay or cavity back to its normal function and shape. When a MALO CLINIC NUFFIELD DENTAL Dentist has to do a filling for you, the decayed tooth material is first removed, then the affected area is cleaned and then a suitable filling material is placed and shaped to form the tooth.
Fillings essentially restore the form and shape of a tooth and especially closing off spaces where bacteria can enter. Hence fillings can also help prevent further decay. Common materials used for fillings include composite resin & gloss-ionomer (tooth-colored fillings). Other types of dental fillings also include Porcelain, Gold & Amalgam. All MALO CLINIC NUFFIELD DENTAL are mercury and amalgam free.
