Regular Fillings

Dental fillings are materials used to restore a decayed tooth. Over the years there have been many different types of filling materials, the most commonly used nowadays are; resins (composite), glass ionomer (ketac) or amalgam, all of which provide ultimate durability and functionality.

Composite Resins fillings are tooth coloured, non-metallic fillings, after all the decay has been removed it is used to restore your teeth to their original anatomy. The colour (or as we call it; shade) is selected carefully from a wide variety to perfectly match your tooth colour. When restored, your teeth look like nothing ever happened! These fillings not only provide aesthetics but, now, provide maximal strength properties, rendering you a superiorly aesthetic as well as durable filling!

Glass Ionomer ot Ketac is also a tooth coloured, non-metallic filling. It is usually used as a core (for badly destructed teeth) were bulk is required. It provides immense surface adhesion to the tooth structure.

Amalagam is a metallic bulk system filling used in specific cases. It is silver in colour and is not very aesthetic, but has its specific mandates.

Consult with your dentist on the type of filling best suited for your case, as different fillings are case subjective.

Post & Core Fillings

This is a filling indicated only for severely damaged, endodontically treated teeth. In which, a small amount of the coronal root canal filling is removed and is replaced with a small post cemented in place using a specialized cement. This post is used to re-inforce the tooth structure and support the filling which will be placed. A specific filling material is then placed onto the tooth; this filling material is specially re-inforced and possesses superior strength properties so as to act as base-support for the weakened tooth. Sometimes, this kind of filling is sufficient to protect the tooth against further damage, if not, a crown is required to protect the tooth. This is decided according to the amount of tooth destruction, the position of the tooth in the mouth, the biting forces and habits of the patient, among many others.

Core Build Ups

These are extra-strength fillings, very similar to post and core build-ups, the only difference is in the absence of the post (or screw). They are done when a tooth has endured sufficient damage to cause root canal treatment and, subsequently, a crown, but, there is enough residual tooth structure that a post is not required. In this type of filling, a highly durable tooth colored resin is used to reinforce the tooth.

Composite Veneers

The dental composite veneers are quite similar to porcelain veneers, except, no impression taking is required as the veneers are constructed directly on your teeth using composite resin instead of porcelain. Both are equally effective, however, porcelain veneers result in slightly better color esthetics, while, composite resin veneers are faster and less expensive. Ask your dentist about which alternative is better suited for you.

Inlays, Onlays & Overlays

These are meant to replace fillings, mainly on posterior teeth, they are highly protective of the tooth. We can fabricate them from of zirconium, resin, regular porcelain, silver or even gold!

Inlays are extremely strong and durable fillings fabricated outside the mouth and then cemented in the same manner as crowns. They only occupy the biting surfaces of teeth like regular fillings do, but, ply superior strength properties.

Onlays are indirect fillings very similar to inlays, except they cover a portion of the tooth cusps along with the biting surface of the tooth.

Overlays also hold a strong resemblance to inlays and onlays, however, they cover entirely the cusps and biting surface. They are almost like crowns, except they do not approach the gum margin; they are like half-crowns if you may.
