The color of this substance is the same as the natural shade of the tooth. So it can be used to replace the natural appearance.. They may be discolored from coffee, tea or tobaccoGenerally, they can last 3-10 years.

Glass Ionomer filling

The color of this filling is white.Although there is not much shade matching.It is usually used in cases of milk teeth and in cases of cervical wear offs.

What can I expect after the treatment?

Relief from tooth pain

The pain causing bacteria is removed from the area and filled with a suitable substance.

Dental hygiene

food gets stuck in the small opening making it unhygienic. Hence closing this decay will make the mouth healthy and hygienic.

Emancipation from bad breath

Bacterias grow in the tiny holes of a tooth. They will start to grow if left untreated. When bacterias are growing at a high rate then they cause bad breath. Treating the cavity with filling can give the confidence to ditch bad breath.

Prevent risk

A small opening today can lead to more serious diseases tomorrow. Filling it in its early stage will protect your tooth from other diseases.
