Common Teeth Damages That Need Tooth Fillings
Tooth fillings are durable materials bonded or attached to the damaged teeth to restore its strength and prevent further tooth destruction. When successfully done, tooth fillings can help your teeth in their everyday functions including heavy chewing.
Tooth fillings are often recommended to address the following issues:
- Broken tooth
- Small gaps
In case of tooth decay, tooth fillings need to fill the cavities as soon as possible to prevent further destruction to the affected tooth. If the cavities are not filled in, pain, discomfort, swelling, pulpal and periodontal disease, and eventual tooth loss are likely to follow.
Regular dental check-ups reduce the need for tooth fillings as possible dental issues are stopped before they can worsen. Tooth fillings at Mayfield Dental Care are of the highest quality with proven durability.

The Tooth Filling Procedure
Tooth fillings require only one appointment. Your dentist will remove the decayed parts of your teeth tooth and condition the tooth enamel. To keep the target tooth dry during the procedure, a dental dam is used.
The composite filling will be bonded to the prepared tooth. A curing light is used to harden the bonded filling.
After the procedure, the tooth might be sensitive to cold and hot food/ drinks for a couple of weeks. If the sensitivity lingers for more than two weeks, you should see your dentist.
