Tooth filling is inevitable if there is too much material loss in the tooth. And usually applied in the posterior molars. Dental fillings are both aesthetic, resistant to chewing pressure and reliable in long term treatment method .
Creating an appropriate cavity (pit ) is the main point in fillings;
And the natural look before decaying should be achieved also with filling. The type of filling used depends on the location and function of teeth.
The molar teeth that make up most of the chewing function are exposed to more pressure and they need a more durable material than the front teeth.
Previously the most common filling material was silver amalgam and It was used in posterior teeth. Such fillings are in fact mercury, silver and other metal alloys.
But by their appearance , they are not aesthetics .
Also, it may be necessary to apply filling depending on the loss of material in the frontal teeth.
Porcelain fillings are a filling method developed to protect healthy dental tissue in situations where there is a lot of material loss and the tooth is totally shrunk to require application of the crown.Since it is more aesthetic and useful, it is preferred to amalgam fillings.
In the first session, out of the diseased areas of teeth , the measurements of the prepared cavities , without any etching for stability from healthy tissue are sent to the laboratory. At there , the filler is prepared from porcelain that completes the missing structure of the tooth prepared specially for this tooth of the patient and glued to the patient's teeth at the second session .This porcelain filling , which has the same hardness as the tooth, prevents fractures from biting forces and ensures that the teeth are as healthy as before. The filling is natural enough to be indistinguishable to the naked eye because it is in the tooth color .
Now, composite fillings are made exactly the same color as the person’s own teeth , appropriate the teeth form . These fillings are natural enough to be indistinguishable from the eye, with developing polishing techniques , colorings due to the dye materials like cigarets that may occur over time are also prevented . The patient uses these healthy and aesthetic filling teeth for many years as if there is no filling in their teeth .
