Fillings (Restorations)

If fillings are required, there is an option to choose between traditional amalgam fillings and aesthetic dental fillings.
The advantage of amalgam fillings is that they are inexpensive; their preparation is simpler and faster than that of aesthetic fillings. The disadvantage is that they are less aesthetic and conduct heat and electricity.
For aesthetic fillings dentists use a composite that binds when exposed to light. They can be used both for molars and teeth in the front. These materials allow us to reproduce the tooth’s original form and color as well. Contrary to traditional procedures, only a minimal amount of healthy tissue has to be removed when shaping the cavity to provide the filling with sufficient stability.

The stages of the filling process are the following:

  • the cavity is treated with acid, then rinsed thoroughly after 30 seconds with water
  • after drying, adhesive material is applied to the acid treated area
  • the filling material is placed into the cavity

The filling material and the tooth produce a chemical bind creating a lasting result.

  • more realistic color
  • preserve more of the original tooth

Inlay, Onlay For Conservative Dental Filling Instead Crown :

 Dental inlays and onlays are restorations used to repair rear teeth with mild to moderate decay or cracked and fractured teeth that are not sufficiently damaged to need a crown.

Ideal candidates for inlay or onlay work typically have too much damage or decay in the tooth structure to be successfully treated using a filling, but have sufficient healthy tooth remaining to avoid the need for a crown. This allows the dentist to conserve more of the patient’s original tooth structure.

Dr Brijesh Patel at Brij Dental Clinic ahmedabad, had experience in providing conservative restorations like inlay and onlay instead of crown. They are one of the leading conservative aesthetic dentist in Ahmedabad Gujarat, India.

 There are other benefits to inlays and onlays in comparison to metal fillings:

  1. Inlays and onlays are durable — they’re made from tough, hard-wearing materials which last up to 10 years.
  2. They help to strengthen teeth by up to 75 percent, unlike traditional metal fillings or crown which can actually reduce the strength of the teeth by up to 50 percent.
  3. Inlays and onlays prolong tooth life and prevent the need for more dental treatment in the future.
  1. Inlays and onlays can be made of composite and ceramic (Glass Ceramic Emax).
    Tooth colored inlays and onlays are very lasting and aesthetic.
