Dental health is a crucial aspect of our overall well-being. One common dental issue that many of us face is cavities, which if left untreated, can lead to more serious dental problems. However, thanks to dental restorations, also known as fillings, we can effectively treat cavities and restore the health and integrity of our teeth.
Understanding Cavities and Tooth Decay
Cavities are small holes that develop on the surface of your teeth as a result of tooth decay. They are often caused by a combination of factors, including bacteria in your mouth, frequent snacking, sipping sugary drinks, and not cleaning your teeth well. If untreated, cavities can lead to severe toothache, infection, and even tooth loss. Want to learn how to prevent cavities? Check out our comprehensive guide to preventing cavities.
What are Dental Fillings (Restorations)?
Dental fillings are a common method used to treat cavities. When you have a cavity, your dentist will remove the decayed portion of the tooth and then "fill" the area on the tooth where the decayed material once lived. These fillings provide much-needed structure and integrity to the compromised tooth, effectively strengthening it and preventing further decay.
At Arora Dental we focus on your comfort to make sure your appointments are stress-free. Want to know about the procedure? Check out What to Expect during Your Dental Filling Procedure at Arora Dental
The Procedure of Dental Fillings
The process of getting a filling involves a few steps. First, the affected area is numbed with a local anesthetic. Then, the decayed material is removed, the area cleaned, and the cleaned-out cavity is filled with a filling material.

Here at Arora Dental, we understand that dental procedures can cause anxiety. That's why we take extra measures to ensure stress-free and comfortable experience for all our patients, complete with complimentary beverages, spa slippers, overhead TVs, noise-canceling headphones, and under-eye masks.
Types of Dental Fillings
Dental fillings come in a variety of materials, including gold, porcelain, silver amalgam, or tooth-colored glass materials called composite resin fillings. The type of filling that's best for you will depend on the extent of the repair, your allergies, where in your mouth the filling is needed, and cost. The most common filling we offer is the tooth-colored glass material called composite resin fillings. These are both esthetic and long-lasting when maintained properly.
Aftercare and Maintenance
Once your filling is complete, it's important to maintain good oral hygiene to ensure the longevity of the filling and overall oral health. This includes regular brushing, flossing, and rinsing with an antibacterial mouthwash. Regular check-ups are also essential in maintaining your oral health and at Arora Dental, our preventative care focuses on this aspect through regular check-ups, cleanings, and patient education.
Cost of Dental Fillings
The cost of dental fillings can vary depending on the material used and the extent of the treatment. However, at Arora Dental, we are committed to making high-quality & loving dental care more affordable for you.
