Dental restorations are procedures performed to restore missing teeth or parts of tooth structure to protect them from further decay. The portion of the missing tooth structures can be due to either decay, failure of a previously done restoration, or fracture of your tooth. Dental restorations help fix these issues. They help you chew your food better, speak clearly, and also give you a better smile than before.
Dental Fillings and Bonding
Dental fillings or Tooth fillings are the most common dental restoration in Dubai where the tooth-colored paste is used to restore small cavities and slightly broken teeth. After getting the tooth area cleaned up, the putty is applied directly onto the tooth surface. It is then exposed to UV or laser light to make it harden and fused to the teeth. Any extra portion of the putty is filed down to make the tooth structure perfect. Later polishing is done to make the restored teeth look more real.

My experience was nothing but excellent. The doctor was professional, extremely competent and confident which rubs off on you. I will not hesitate to visit Go Dental Clinic again or to recommend it without any reservation. It is really good in terms of pain-free treatment.
I visited the Oral Surgeon at the clinic for a couple of wisdom teeth extractions. The procedure was done in a very professional manner. I did not even feel the second tooth being removed. I also came back for a root canal. I had a couple of root canals done in the past but nothing compares to the finesse of the procedure done at Go Dental Clinic. The root nerve extraction was done with minimal pain and after the procedure I did not require any pain killers. The doctor was very descriptive and prepared me for what to expect. Go Dental Clinic is surely the best dental clinic that I have been to till date. Highly recommended!

I am so happy that my treatment went smoothly at Go Dental Clinic. Also, the girls at the reception desk are very friendly, efficient and professional.

Frequently Asked Questions
Tooth fillings or dental fillings are typically required to treat cavities caused by tooth decay. When bacteria produce acids that erode tooth enamel, cavities form. Fillings help restore the damaged tooth by removing the decayed material and filling the space with materials like amalgam or composite resin.
While uncommon, fillings can sometimes dislodge or fall out. If this happens, it’s important to contact your dentist promptly. Avoid chewing on the affected side and try to keep the tooth clean. Your dentist will assess the situation and may need to replace the filling to maintain the tooth’s integrity.
No, getting a tooth filling is typically not painful. The dentist will use a local anesthetic to numb the area before removing the decay and placing the filling. Patients may feel a slight pressure or vibration during the procedure, but it should not be painful. After the numbness wears off, there might be some sensitivity, which usually subsides.
The lifespan of a tooth filling depends on various factors, including the material used, the size and location of the filling, and individual oral hygiene practices. On average, amalgam fillings can last 10 to 15 years, while composite resin fillings may need replacement sooner, around 7 to 10 years. Regular dental check-ups help monitor the condition of fillings.
You can resume eating and drinking as usual after getting a tooth filling. However, waiting until the numbness wears off is advisable to avoid accidentally biting your cheek or tongue. If you experience sensitivity or discomfort after the filling, avoiding extremely hot, cold, or sticky foods is best until any post-procedure sensitivity subsides.
