Dental cavities are the most common dental issue in the world.

Treatment starts by removing any tooth decay.

Our dentists in Norwalk, CT can offer many alternatives for dental fillings. They combine different options such as durability, strength, and aesthetics.

 

Traditional dental fillings may include gold, porcelain, or composite. Fillings replace the part of the tooth that destroyed by decay. They are used to restore teeth to their normal shape and appearance.

  • Direct - placed into a prepared cavity in a single visit.

  • Indirect – generally require two or more visits.

There are five types of materials commonly used to fill in the space where a cavity has been removed:

 

  1. Amalgam

  2. Composite

  3. Ceramic

  4. Glass ionomer

  5. Metals

 

All of them have their pros and cons. If you would like to learn more about the advantages and disadvantages our dentist in Norwalk, CT will be happy to assist you.

Different Kinds of Fillings

If your cavity is located in a less visible area of your mouth - you can typically choose between the traditional amalgam and the composite material, which is a resin that matches your tooth color.

 

Both dental fillings have benefits. But the only dentist can recommend which type of filling is better in your case. It depends on specific details.

Dental Sealants

Dental sealant is a thin plastic coating intended

to help prevent tooth decay on the chewing surface

of your teeth. Usually, sealants use on the back teeth.

 

Sealants are applied very quickly and without pain.

Drilling or removing tooth structure is not required.

They can be applied on the same day as your dental

exam and cleaning.

 

Dental sealants on permanent molars reduce the risk of cavities by 80%. Sealant placement is quick and simple.
