Once a tooth develops decay that penetrates beyond the outer layer of the tooth called enamel or if a tooth is broken or has surface wear and tear, it usually needs to be restored by filling it. This is usually done by removing the diseased portion of the tooth, preparing the remaining part appropriately before patching it up using one or more of the following tooth filling materials – metal alloys, glass ionomer cement, resin composites or other types of cement.

In certain cases, it is desirable to restore the tooth with a laboratory-made dental restoration that is then bonded to the tooth by the dentist like dental inlays, onlays, veneers or crowns.
Tooth Coloured Fillings
Say goodbye to the days of metal fillings and welcome naturally pleasing tooth coloured fillings! At Kisumu Dental Center, we are a mercury-light (we reserve the amalgam fillings for only the most desperate of situations) practice!
When you develop a cavity, Dr Odoyo carefully removes the decayed areas of the tooth and then fills the space with a durable dental composite material. If you are like most patients, you may choose white composite fillings or fillings that match your natural teeth colour, instead of silver fillings because of their improved esthetics and lack of mercury.
Before filling cavities, our dentist numbs your teeth, gums and surrounding skin to avoid and lessen discomfort during the procedure. Next, we shall drill out the decay in the tooth and replace it with a filling. This process only takes a few minutes.
