Dental Restoration(Tooth Filling)

What is Dental Restoration?

Dental Restoration is a way to restore a tooth damaged by decay back to its normal function and shape. The procedure involves first removing the decayed tooth material, cleaning the affected area, and then filling the cleaned out cavity with a filling material.

By closing off spaces where bacteria can enter, a filling also helps prevent further decay. Materials used for fillings include gold, porcelain, a composite resin (tooth-colored fillings), and silver amalgam.

When you need a dental filling, you have many choices. But since different types of fillings are better for different dental conditions, we will help you decide which type of filling is right for you based on factors including the location and severity of the decay, the cost of the filling.

The process of preparation usually involves cutting the tooth with a rotary dental handpiece and dental burrs or a dental laser to make space for the planned restorative materials and to remove any dental decay or portions of the tooth that are structurally unsound. If permanent restoration cannot be carried out immediately after tooth preparation, temporary restoration may be performed.

Types of Dental Restoration :

Silver amalgam:

Silver amalgam fillings offer strength and durability at lower cost, but many people don’t like the look of them. Also, amalgam fillings can be more prone to expansion and contraction and thus they are more likely to cause a tooth to crack compared with other filling materials.


Fillings made of a tooth-colored composite are popular because the color can be matched to your teeth. Composite fillings are not as durable as metal fillings and they may need to be replaced after five years, compared with 10 or 15 years for metal fillings. They are more expensive than amalgam fillings.

Glass ionomers:

These glass and acrylic fillings usually last less than five years, but they are often a good choice for children whose teeth are still changing. Also, they can release fluoride, which can help prevent tooth decay.


Gold, which has long been prized for its malleability and durability. Gold fillings are actually composed of gold, copper and other metals, but they still look like gold.

How long will Dental Restoration Last?

Your filling won’t last forever. How long your fillings last depends on a number of factors, including the size of your cavity and the material used to fill the cavity.

Several factors influence the performance, durability, longevity and cost of dental restorations. These include the patient’s oral and general health, components used in the filling material, where and how the filling is placed, the chewing load that the tooth will have to bear, and the duration and number of visits needed to prepare and adjust the restored tooth.
