Dental Fillings

Dental fillings are made out of a variety of metals, synthetic substances, glass, and other materials that are used to repair or restore teeth. One of the most popular uses of fillings is to “fill” an area of a tooth that has been removed due to decay – “a cavity.” Fillings are also used to restore teeth that have been worn down due to usage or that have been cracked or damaged (such as from nail-biting or teeth grinding).

At O'Skin, the top dental clinic in Madinaguda, a thorough diagnosis is done to ensure that the root cause of the concern is identified along with aligning the patient with the right kind of filling that will ensure that your smile is everlasting.

Dental filling materials include:

  •   Gold
  •   Porcelain
  •   The Amalgamation of silver (contains mercury mixed with silver, tin, zinc, and copper).
  •   Composite resin fillings are made up of tooth-colored, synthetic, and glass ingredients

After receiving a dental filling, what causes tooth sensitivity?

It's not uncommon for a filling to cause tooth sensitivity after it's been placed. Pressure, air, sugary snacks, and temperature may all irritate your tooth. Within a few weeks, the sensitivity usually fades away on its own. Until then, stay away from the source of your sensitivity. A pain reliever is generally unnecessary.
