Fillings

NO GAP Dental Fillings

A filling may be prescribed by your dentist if your tooth has a hole or decay. At Super Smiles Dental, the filling material we use is called composite resin, which is a tooth-coloured filling material. There are different material qualities that are important for composite resin such as strength, bonding ability, elasticity, shrinkage properties etc. At Super Smiles Dental we have selected only the best composite resin which has the best material properties for our patients. This is so that our fillings last as long as possible and provide outstanding comfort, support, aesthetics and function.

What are dental fillings?

If you find a hole in one of your teeth or notice some decay, it’s probably time to come into our practice in Liverpool and get a dental filling. One of the most common procedures in the dentistry world, dental fillings are extremely quick and easily completed. These cavities are usually the cause of a poor oral health routine or by eating sugar, as this makes it difficult for the teeth to heal and regenerate.

What happens during a dental filling?

During a dental filling, our dentists will carefully remove all dead and decaying material from the damaged tooth before inserting a new replacement filling. Afterwards, they will clean and polish the entire tooth, finishing the procedure off by using a special tool that hardens and secures the different layers.

Will it hurt?

At Super Smile Dental, your comfort is important to us, so we often use a local anesthetic to numb the area and typically our NO GAP dental filling procedures can be completed in under an hour. From our dental chairs, to our materials and equipment, our practice utilises the latest in dental technology for a less invasive, more efficient treatment experience.

What types of material do you use for dental fillings?

For a natural looking dental filling, At Super Smiles Dental we use a popular tooth-coloured filling material called composite resin. Indistinguishable from natural teeth, composite fillings actually bond to the natural tooth itself. They’re placed in layers and sculpted to your tooth's shape to provide an enhanced level of support and strength.

My tooth doesn't hurt, do I need a filling?

When a hole begins to form in a tooth, it doesn't cause pain, but usually it will continue to get bigger if it is left unaddressed. The best time to get a filling is when it is not giving you pain. As the decay progresses in the tooth, it gets closer to the nerve in which case it may cause pain. When pain begins this may be an indicator that you possibly require a root canal treatment rather than just a simple filling.

What does NO GAP dental fillings mean?
