High-quality dental fillings using the latest techniques and materials
What are Dental Fillings?
Dental fillings are a common restorative treatment used to repair teeth that have been damaged by decay or minor fractures. The procedure involves removing the decayed or damaged portion of the tooth and filling the space with a durable material, such as composite resin or amalgam, to restore its shape, strength, and function.
At Tajmeel Clinic we prioritize the preservation of your natural teeth. Our skilled dentists are dedicated to providing high-quality dental fillings using the latest techniques and materials. We strive to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure, while also delivering long-lasting and aesthetically pleasing results.
The Dental Filling Process
- Diagnosis and Treatment Planning: Our dentist will conduct a thorough examination, including X-rays, to assess the extent of the tooth decay or damage. Based on the findings, a personalized treatment plan will be created.
- Anesthesia: To ensure your comfort, a local anesthetic will be administered to numb the area around the affected tooth. You may experience minimal discomfort during this process.
- Removal of Decay or Damage: Using precise dental instruments, the dentist will carefully remove the decayed or damaged part of the tooth. The area will be thoroughly cleaned to eliminate any bacteria or debris.
- Tooth Filling: Once the tooth is prepared, the dentist will place the appropriate dental filling material into the cavity. The filling will be shaped and polished to match the natural contour of your tooth, ensuring a seamless appearance.
- Final Checks and Bite Adjustment: The dentist will check the bite to ensure proper alignment and make any necessary adjustments to ensure your bite feels comfortable and natural.
- Post-Treatment Care: After the procedure, our team will provide you with instructions on how to care for your dental filling. It’s important to maintain good oral hygiene practices, including regular brushing, flossing, and routine dental check-ups.
Types of Dental Fillings
- Composite Resin: These tooth-colored fillings blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, providing a discreet and aesthetically pleasing result.

- Ceramic or Porcelain: These fillings are custom-made to match the color and appearance of your natural teeth, offering an attractive and durable solution.
The choice of filling material depends on several factors, including the location and extent of the decay, your oral health needs, and your personal preferences. Our dentist will discuss the options with you and recommend the most suitable choice for your specific situation.
