At Teeth and Faces Dental clinic tooth coloured dental fillings are done to restore teeth that have been damaged by tooth decay or injury. The cleaning and shaping of teeth prior to the filling is done. Different types of tooth filling materials are used at Teeth and Faces dental Clinic for the filling of different types of cavities in various locations of the teeth, viz. Light cure composite resins, Glass ionomer cements, and laboratory fabricated fillings (inlays/onlays) made of either ceramic filling, composite filling or zirconia.
Done in the tooth directly. Direct restorations are usually tooth coloured cavity fillings done in a single appointment for adults as well as children to restore teeth damaged by decay. Light cure composite resins and glass ionomer cement fillings come in this category. We at Teeth And Faces have purposely avoided amalgam restorations to keep our clinic and patients mercury free.
Fabricated outside the mouth in a laboratory to be cemented in the next appointment. Indirect restorations which are commonly known as Inlays and Onlays are specifically used in cases where the damage of teeth has been extensive, requiring stronger restorative materials compared to the direct restorations. Inlays and Onlays are laboratory fabricated highly durable restorations that can be made from porcelain, metal, or composite resin. Though, porcelain is now becoming the material of choice because of its strength and potential to match the natural color of your tooth.

Do u complain of bad breath? Bleeding gums?See a dentist to find out whats wrong it can be treated.
Gum disease can be caused by a number of factors, but poor oral hygiene is the most common cause. Poor oral hygiene, such as not brushing your teeth properly or regularly, can cause plaque to build up on your teeth.
Gingivitis is a mild form of gum disease which causes swollen and bleeding gums. This condition can be reversed by going to a dentist andgetting teeth cleaned professionally which called as scaling and polishing followed by regular use of dental floss and brushing.
When this condition worsens it leads to the next stage called as periodontitis, which causes receding gums, loss of bone and detachment of the gingival from the tooth. At this stage you require a minor surgical procedure called as Flap surgery. Where a dentist will clean the teeth thoroughly from deep inside the gums and will give you sutures.
