by Sumit Gupta Freelancer

As the food industry is evolving people have started to know more about their unfamiliar taste buds. From enjoying the various and toothsome treats, many adults have complained about their tooth aching. Even after following a good routine for their mouth cavity. The only reason why they are facing such an issue is the cavity build-up from their teen or childhood years. The damage that is caused by the cavity or tooth decay is the only reason for that unexplainable pain in the mouth.

The solution to this problem is “Composite Fillings. It is known to be an efficient tool when it comes to correct the damage that is done by the cavity. Or it is also used to treat the cavity, where the affected area will get removed at first and then fill up that specific area from where the decayed matter was removed. Plus, there are some excellent dental clinics giving safe and secure composite fillings in Chandler, AZ. 

Apart from that people are also concerned about the steps that a dentist needs to follow at the time of filling. 

  • At first, the dentist will make sure to anesthetize the specific area with local anesthesia, to avoid any kind of insufferable pain. 

  • Then to remove or eliminate that affected matter from that area usage of a drill, air abrasion instrument, or laser will be used. 

  • What type of instrument should be used completely varies depending on the dentist's training, comfort level and the experience which he/ she holds in the handling of that instrument. 

  • After removal of the decaying matter, then the dentist assures to test the area to check any left out material. 

  • Once the dentist checks the area completely, then he/ she proceeds to clean the cavity just to have no sign of bacterial residue or cavity. 

  • Then the area is arranged for the filling.

  • In some cases, if the decay is near the root, then the dentist should make sure to place a linear made up of glass ionomer, composite resin, or other material in order to protect the nerve. 

  • At last, the dentist will fill that area up and will give it a complete finish by polishing it. 

  • And if someone wants to go for tooth coloured filling then, they need to tell their dentist and should be familiar with the further process. 

Moving forward some of the individuals also specifies the type of material they want to use while having a composite filling. There are several materials that are fulfilling the demand of people just like the affordable dental implants in Mesa, AZ


Let’s check out the advantages and disadvantages of various materials used in the filling of decayed teeth.

Gold Fillings-

  • They have the strength to bear the chewing forces. 

  • And they look pleasing to the eyes of people who love the golden colour. 


  • These fillings are a bit more expensive than others. 

Silver Fillings -


  • Just as the gold fillings they also have the durability of 10 to 15 years. 

  • They can also bear the chewing forces. 

  • They are less expensive as compared to the other fillings. 


  • They do not go with the colour of the teeth, due to being silver in colour. 

  • Easily gets cracks and fractures when in contact with too hot and too cold materials. 

  • Highly allergic to people because of the presence of mercury in amalgam restorations.
