Dr. Harin Shodhan and Dr. Keyur Shodhan frequently treat men and women who suffer from cavities – the typical result of tooth decay. Though the exact cause of tooth decay varies from patient to patient, anyone who suffers from this condition can receive treatment. A “filling” can help alleviate the discomfort of cavities, as well as prevent further decay by closing off spaces where more bacteria can enter.

Such a procedure is an effective route to restoring tooth structure loss. This type of dental restoration not only treats cavities (the most common reason for tooth structure loss); fillings can also be used to treat teeth that are worn down, cracked or broken. This can result from repetitive misuse, such as grinding and nail-biting. Overall, fillings are used to transform decayed teeth into fully functional teeth. They also help eliminate the pain that is often associated with tooth structure loss.

There is more than one type of material that can be used for a filling. This includes:

  • Gold
  • Porcelain
  • Silver amalgam
  • Composite resin

The exact material used for a filling is based on certain factors, such as location and position of the tooth, the extent of the decay, the patient’s budget and insurance coverage. (Each filling material varies in costs.) Dr. Harin Shodhan or Dr. Keyur Shodhan will help determine which type of filling best meets your oral health, aesthetic, and financial needs. During your consultation at Shodhan Dentistry, you have the opportunity to learn more about the advantages of each filling material.
