Dental restorations (also known as ‘Fillings’) are a common treatment used in general dentistry to restore and re-build decayed and damaged teeth.

They are also used in cosmetic dentistry to alter the shapes and sizes of teeth and mask discolourations.

Plaque build-up and dietary sugars in susceptible individuals can lead to cavities or holes in a tooth as acid eats away at the enamel. These teeth then require restorations (also known as ‘fillings’) in order to reconstruct the damaged portion of the teeth and restore them to their original integrity.

At Market Square dental practice, we offer a range of restoration types to protect and strengthen teeth. These include metallic or gold restorations as well as tooth coloured/aesthetic restorations, which blend into the teeth and are barely visible to the eye.

It is important to maintain a consistent and effective home care routine so that you can reduce the build-up of plaque on your teeth and avoid the need for fillings. You should also avoid sugary drinks and foods as much as possible.

What you can expect when getting a restoration/ filling?

Once your dentist has identified the need for a restoration, they will remove the decay from the affected area and clean it thoroughly. The areas where bacteria have the potential to enter are cut off and the tooth is restored with a restorative material, designed to re-establish the tooth shape and integrity. Here at Market Square Dental Practice we regularly carry out tooth coloured restorations which is an aesthetic alternative to traditional amalgam fillings.
