Strong and Aesthetic Restoration
With the new generation composite filling, it is possible to treat the tooth that has lost its health both aesthetically and in a solid way.
[The nano-porcelain parts added into the composite filling both increase the durability and improve the aesthetic quality to the level of porcelain.]
Frequently Asked Questions About Tooth Filling
How Is Tooth Decay Detected?
Decays are detected by x-ray. Caries detector dyes are used for small decays that may not be visible on X-rays.
Will It Hurt During Tooth Filling?
Filling treatment does not cause pain. If a large area is to be filled, your dentist may administer local anesthesia. Anesthesia may not be required for small fillings close to the surface.
Which Tooth Filling Should I Have?
Your dentist will decide on the best filling based on the condition of the damaged tooth. Not every filling is used in every tooth. The major fillings are:
Composite Filling: It is known as white filling. It is used to make aesthetic repairs to the anterior teeth.
Inlay and Onlay Filling: They are porcelain fillings. If there is not sufficient tissue left to fill the unhealthy tooth that has been cleaned, inlay and onlay fillings are used. An inlay is a filling applied to a narrower part of the tooth, and an onlay is applied to a larger area.
Amalgam Filling: It is an old-generation gray filling that is about to be obsolete today. The toxic content of the amalgam filling, which looks bad from an aesthetic point of view, raises some health concerns.
Gold filling: The use of gold filling is decreasing in our country. It is made by adding gold to other filling materials.
