Dental Fillings: What You Need to Know


What type of filling do I need? Why do I need it? These are just a couple of questions you may have about dental fillings, and your dentist has the answers.

Dr. Nainesh Desai and Dr. Rahee Shah of Central Jersey Dental Arts in Piscataway, NJ, offer a wide range of dental services, including dental fillings to renew your smile.

So, let’s look at a few of the reasons you might need a filling:

Tooth decay; is the most common reason why your dentist will recommend a filling. You need a filling if tooth decay has spread to the layer underneath the enamel, called dentin.

An old filling needs repair; dental fillings may not last forever. Over time, the margins of the filling can break down, letting in bacteria, which can cause decay under the filling.

You are experiencing root sensitivity; the roots of your teeth are much softer than the crowns of your teeth. Over time, these roots can become exposed. Air, temperature, and foods and beverages can all make your roots sensitive. A filling is a good way to seal up the root surface.

We offer tooth-colored fillings that are made with composite, a material that can be matched to the color of your teeth.
