Stop Further Tooth Decay with Quality Dental Fillings

Dental fillings are a common restorative dental treatment used to repair teeth damaged by decay or trauma. They provide several benefits to dental patients, including:

  1. Restoring tooth structure: Dental fillings are used to repair teeth that have been affected by cavities or dental decay.

  2. Preventing further decay: Dental fillings seal off the area where decay has been removed, preventing bacteria from re-entering the tooth and causing further decay.

  3. Relieving tooth sensitivity: Teeth that have cavities or areas of enamel erosion can become sensitive to temperature changes, air, or certain foods.

  4. Improving aesthetics: Pioneer Dental makes fillings from tooth-colored materials, such as composite resin or porcelain that match the color of your teeth.

  5. Preventing tooth loss: By addressing tooth decay early and restoring the tooth with a filling, patients can avoid further damage that could lead to tooth loss.

Pioneer Dental is happy to work to restore your smile to is very best with an expert treatment plan.

What are the Options for Dental Fillings?

There are several options for dental fillings, each with its own advantages and considerations. The common types of dental fillings include:

  1. Amalgam fillings: Amalgam fillings, also known as silver fillings, have been used for many years. Amalgam fillings are known for their durability and strength, making them suitable for filling cavities in the back teeth that endure heavy chewing forces.

  2. Composite resin fillings: Composite resin fillings, also called tooth-colored or white fillings, are made of a mixture of plastic and fine glass particles. They can be closely matched to the natural color of the patient’s teeth.

  3. Ceramic or porcelain fillings: Ceramic or porcelain fillings, often referred to as inlays or onlays, are custom-made restorations created in a dental laboratory.

  4. Glass ionomer fillings: Glass ionomer fillings are made of a blend of acrylic and glass powders. They are tooth-colored and can release fluoride, which can help prevent further tooth decay.

  5. Gold fillings: Gold fillings, also known as gold inlays or onlays, are made of a gold alloy. They are highly durable, long-lasting, and well-tolerated by gum tissues.

Pioneer Dental dentists consider the unique needs of each patient for dental fillings.

Pioneer Dental Makes Tooth Colored Fillings

Tooth-colored fillings provide an aesthetically pleasing option for restoring teeth affected by cavities or minor damage. Pioneer Dental generally recommends tooth colored fillings for most patients.

Here are some key features and benefits of tooth-colored fillings:

  1. Aesthetic appearance: Tooth-colored fillings can be closely matched to the shade of the patient’s natural teeth, making them virtually indistinguishable.

  2. Bonding to tooth structure: Composite resin fillings bond chemically to the tooth structure. This bonding process helps to strengthen the tooth, reduce the risk of further damage, and provide added support to the restored tooth.

  3. Preservation of natural tooth structure: Composite resin fillings require less removal of healthy tooth structure and can result in more conservative preparation.

  4. Insulation properties: Tooth-colored fillings have good insulation properties, meaning they are less sensitive to temperature changes compared to metal fillings.

  5. Dental adhesion: Composite resin fillings can be bonded to the tooth using dental adhesives, which helps create a tight seal between the filling material and the tooth structure.
