A dental filling is a way to restore a tooth damaged by decay back to its normal function and shape and it is performed by our top dentist in Pune. When a dentist gives you a filling, the decayed tooth is removed, the affected area is cleaned and then the filling is done with the suitable dental filling material.
A filling prevents further decay by closing off spaces where bacteria can enter. Various filling materials like Gold, Porcelain, or tooth coloured materials like a composite resin, glass ionomer cement are available.
Dental surgeon considers number of factors before choosing the right filling material for the patient. Not one type of filling is the best. It all depends on what is required for a particular case. Sometimes, even combination of two filling materials in layering form is done to give best results.
