Dental fillings in Dubai come in different types, depending on the extent of the damage to your tooth. These dental fillings differ in quality, color and price, and you have to choose the best one suited for you after doing sufficient research on each.
We have decided to make your work easier, by explaining the nature and durability of each of the dental fillings in Dubai for you.
Amalgam filling: These are the silver fillings that have a darker color. These fillings are normally used in teeth that are not very prominent, like the molars. Amalgam fillings are considered fairly durable – they last anywhere from 10 years onwards, and the cost is very fair compared to other fillings. They are made from a mixture of tin, silver, zinc, mercury and copper.
Gold Dental Filling: These are the most expensive fillings. If this is your preferred choice of dental filler, you have to order them direct from a laboratory. The gum tissues tolerate these gold inlays very well, that is why most dentists recommend them, considering you can afford to have real gold teeth. They last for 20 plus years and are very stout when it comes to chewing.
Porcelain Dental Filling: These are the ones made of porcelain, and they cost as much as the gold fillings. The only difference is that when you make your order from the laboratory, they can be matched to your teeth color making them go unnoticed. Just like in veneers, the filling is bonded to the tooth, and can cover more than just the hollow space created. Porcelain fillings in Dubai are also resistant to staining, hence the reason why you have to pay the price of gold for them.
Composite Dental Filling: Made out of plastic, composite fillings are used to give a natural appearance to the teeth. The mixture is made by the dentist then placed onto the hollowed bad tooth where it hardens in place. Composite fillings are not as long lasting as gold and porcelain, and they only last three years plus. This is because they are very prone to wear and tear, and are easily stained by tea, coffee, cigarettes, and other colored stuff you ingest.
First and foremost, after the dentist has decided that you need a dental filling in Dubai, you have to choose the type of filling, from the above list. The dentist in Dubai then gives you a local anesthesia which numbs the area.
The dentist will then use a drill to cut through the enamel in order to remove the decayed matter. He/she will then clean out the hollow space in readiness for the filling of your choice. Depending on the dental filling, he/she will use acid gel to etch the tooth before filling it.
After the dental filling is in place, also depending on the type, he/she will use a resin layer, which he hardens using a special kind of light to make sure it keeps strong. Afterwards, the good dentist in Dubai will polish your newly restored tooth to perfection.
After the dental filling procedure has been completed, all you have to do is follow the dentist’s advise and recommendation, and you will live happily ever after with your restored tooth.
