Cosmetic Restoration (white Fillings)

Dental fillings are inserted as restorations in the treatment of dental cavities, after drilling out the cavities. The purpose of drilling is to remove the enamel and dentin that has had its structural integrity compromised by the invasion of acid-producing bacteria.

If dental plaque is permitted to continue to lie on the tooth's surface the decay process will progress until finally a point is reached where so much mineral content has been lost that a hole has formed in the tooth and a filling is needed. On the other hand however, if the tooth's surface is kept plaque free, the cavity formation process can be halted. But since the mineral content of the enamel has already been altered its color will remain bright white.

Once the infected hard tissues have been removed, the resulting cavity preparation must be filled in order to restore structural integrity of the tooth. This will prevent further damage to the tooth and hopefully avoid the eventual need for the tooth to be extracted.
