Common Causes Of Teeth Problems

  • Dental decay or cavities
  • Fractured or chipped teeth
  • Worn or eroded tooth structure
  • Replacement of old or failing dental restorations
  • Restoration of baby teeth or primary dentition

How Does it Work

GIC Generation Filling involves the application of a glass ionomer cement material directly onto the tooth surface. The cement is mixed and applied to the prepared tooth, where it bonds chemically and releases fluoride. This process creates a strong and durable restoration that blends naturally with the surrounding teeth, providing a reliable and aesthetically pleasing result.


  • Filling cavities and repairing tooth decay
  • Restoring small to medium-sized defects or chips
  • Repairing worn or eroded tooth surfaces
  • Replacing old or failing dental restorations
  • Providing temporary restorations or fillings for primary teeth

Treatment steps

  1. Evaluation and diagnosis of dental issues requiring restoration
  2. Preparation of the tooth by removing decay or damaged tooth structure
  3. Mixing the glass ionomer cement and applying it to the tooth
  4. Shaping and contouring the cement to achieve a natural-looking restoration
  5. Final curing of the material and polishing for a smooth finish and proper bite alignment

Session: A session of GIC Generation Filling refers to a single visit or appointment dedicated to the procedure.

Duration: 30 minutes to 1 hour.

Painful or Painless: GIC Generation Filling is generally a painless procedure. Local anesthesia may be used to numb the treated area if necessary. Some individuals may experience temporary sensitivity or discomfort after the procedure, but it is usually mild and subsides quickly.

During the course of having laser hair removal sessions, we will only allow you to shave or trim your hair. This is because waxing and plucking will pull the hair out of the root meaning the laser will be less effective at your next session.
