A filling is a way to restore a tooth damaged by decay back to its normal function and shape. When a tooth has to be restored, the dentist will first remove the decayed tooth material, clean the affected area, and then fill the cleaned-out-cavity with dental fillings.
In olden days, silver color dental fillings were used which was unaesthetic. They had another disadvantage of recurrence of decay due to weak bonding between filling and tooth.
Nowadays, tooth-colored materials (GIC or composites) are used as dental fillings that camouflage with the natural tooth. Additionally, they also prevent the recurrence of decay. The only issue with this material is the strength of the GIC may vary with the manual mix.
At Denta Kings, we use the most advanced machine-mixed filling material which has high strength and quality.
