Dental Caries is the medical term for tooth decay. It is one of the most common preventable diseases worldwide. Though it’s incidence has significantly diminished over the years due to the use of fluorides and an increase in patient awareness, it is still a major disease in India.
Teeth are susceptible to decay, infection & breakage and, when possible, can be restored back to health. Through improved techniques and modern technology, we have a plethora of options for restoring a tooth back to its normal shape, appearance and function.
The following are common ways in which EviDent Speciality Dental Care restores damaged teeth.

A composite (tooth colored resin) filling is used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks, fractures, etc.
The decayed or affected portion of the tooth is removed and filled with a tooth colored resin by a ‘bonding process’.
Composite fillings are tooth colored and they can be closely matched to the color of existing teeth. They offer excellent cosmetic results.
Though commonly referred to as ‘permanent fillings’ they do not last lifelong and need timely maintenance. They are very durable, and will last many years, giving you a long lasting, beautiful smile.
Dental problems that can be corrected using composite fillings:
- Chipped teeth
