What are fillings?

Fillings or dental fillings are used to repair the damaged surfaces of teeth. The surface of teeth may be damaged by small fractures, damaged enamel or decay. It takes 25 to 90 minutes to place a filling in a tooth.

What different types of fillingsare there?

Dental fillings are made of gold, silver, mercury or amalgam, porcelain or ceramic, plastic, composite resin materials or a glass and acrylic mixture called glass inomer.

Is getting a filling painful?

Preparing the tooth to place a filling by removing the decayed portion using a dental drill should not be painful. Some patients find the preparation procedure uncomfortable and painful. The dentist will administer a local anaesthic to ensure that the patient does not feel pain during the procedure.

 

How long does recovery after fillings are placed take?

Patients may experience pain or sensitivity for a few weeks after a filling is placed. The area where the anaesthetic was injected will feel sore for a few days. The gums of the patient will also feel sore for a few days.

How do I care for my teeth after fillings are placed?

Patients should not eat for at least three hours till the anaesthesia wears off. They should not eat or drink anything that is too hot or too cold for a few days. They should avoid very hard food. They should take all prescribed medications correctly. They should follow correct dental hygiene and brush and floss their teeth regularly.

What are the alternatives to placing fillings?

Alternatives to dental fillings are dental crowns, inlays or onlays, or tooth remineralization.

Fillings €60 - €120
With significant advances in dental materials many fillings are now completed with white composite restorations. Composite restorations can be used to repair worn or fractured front teeth by matching the tooth tissue colour to various white filling materials. Why should I consider white fillings?White fillings are very natural looking, as well as doing the job they’re meant to do. While they have traditionally been considered less long lasting than silver amalgam fillings, advances in materials now mean that white fillings are virtually as durable as silver amalgam. Is it worth replacing my amalgam fillings with white ones?It is generally best to change fillings only when your dentist decides that an old filling needs replacing. When this happens you can ask to have it replaced with a tooth-coloured filling. What are tooth-coloured fillings made of?Composite fillingsMade from powdered glass, quartz, silica or other ceramic particles added to a resin base. Your dentist will choose a shade to match your own teeth. After the tooth is prepared, the filling is bonded onto the area with an adhesive and a light shone onto it to set it. With this type of filling, the dentist may have to remove less of the tooth, which is obviously better.Glass IonomerGlass Ionomer fillings form a chemical bond with the tooth. They may also release fluoride, which helps prevent further tooth decay. This type of filling is relatively weak and is usually used on non-biting surfaces, such as around the neck of the tooth.Porcelain inlaysOur laboratory can now use computer technology to design and prepare perfectly fitted porcelain inlays. Porcelain tends to be very hard wearing and long lasting, and it can be precisely coloured to match your own teeth. This type of filling is significantly more expensive than the standard white filling. Your dentist will explain all of your options before any treatment commences.<
Dentist Consultation from €30
Regular check ups and professional cleaning are essential to protect the health of your teeth and gums. At your dental consultation your teeth, gums and mouth will be carefully examined to ensure you are in good oral health. After the examination we will discuss with you any requirements you may have and offer advice on how to protect your teeth. Depending on the condition of your teeth and your previous dental treatments your dentist will usually recommend a dental check up at least once a year. At your check up appointment a full examination will be carried out on the oral soft tissue to ensure that it is healthy. 
Dental Crowns from €500
On occasion a tooth may have significant damage which can not be repaired using a filling. As we recommend retaining the natural tooth where possible a patient can consider the option of crowning a tooth. This involves placing a crown over the damaged tooth. There are many different types of crowns and at Reva Dental in Kilkenny our preference is to recommended either all porcelain crowns or porcelain bonded to white gold crowns. This is consistent with our philosophy of using only the highest quality materials to ensure the best and longest lasting result. All crowns look like natural teeth once complete and are matched to your own dentition. If a tooth has been previously root treated it is often necessary to increase the strength of the tooth by placing a fitting called a ‘post and core’ in the tooth. These posts improve the strength and durability of the restored tooth. It is our policy to use laboratory fabricated white gold posts for the best clinical results. Our dentists will be happy to discuss all of your options with you and provide a written quote before any treatment is carried out.

I felt 100% comfortable on every visitCatherine, Ireland, 03 10 17

I needed work done and wanted my teeth sorted before my upcoming wedding. I have a living fear of dentists hence needing all the work Meave could not have been nicer or made me feel any more at ease. She spoke to me about everything that needed to be done and we worked out a timetable to get it done before the Wedding. I felt 100% comfortable on every visit.
