BROKEN TEETH FILLING

Teeth which are broken to a minor extent due to trauma can be repaired with the use of cosmetic dental fillings which are made out of a resin based material. Such cosmetic dental fillings- “composite fillings” are usually completed in a single visit and are painless. The end result is a beautiful integration of the natural tooth with the exact match of the filling.

Technique

The first step is to clean and prepare the teeth to receive the filling material. In some instances, if the broken fragment of the tooth is available – reattachment of the fractured piece is also possible. The shade of the broken tooth is recorded and the tooth colour filling shade is selected accordingly. The material is hardened with a Light Curing machine and finishing and polishing is done.
