Dentares Smile Clinic offers modern composite fillings that are cost effective and aesthetic. It is the primary concern of patients to ensure that their smile isn’t impacted by unsightly metal fillings. Amalgam is a traditional metal restoration technique for fillings and inlays/onlays. Due to modern materials and techniques, amalgam is a thing of the past. Our composite filling material is coloured to match the natural tooth colour. It’s important to integrate restorations in the most natural way at Dentares. As opposed to other restoration methods, composite materials can be applied for immediate results.
What is Dental Filling?
Dental fillings in Turkey combine a resin with glass powder to produce a long-lasting durable filling to protect the natural tooth from decay. Bacteria and food particles can penetrate the tooth’s enamel and over time invade the dentin and pulp of the tooth slowly compromising the integrity of the tooth. This can be incredibly painful depending on the advancement of decay. So the dentist removes infected tissue and replaces it with an aesthetic composite resin. Dental fillings are generally used on small areas of decay. If a patient presents with advanced decay, then an inlay, onlay or dental crown may be a more appropriate treatment.
Fillings are durable enough to be appropriate for anterior and posterior (front & back) teeth. However, greater attention is given to the anterior region to ensure that the colour and shape matches to the naturality of the treated tooth. Composite resins have a porosity of 1-2% which means they are not immune to discolouration over time. For this reason, anterior fillings may need to be replaced more frequently than posterior fillings. If there are multiple affected areas or the decay is large, then a dental crown or veneer may be more appropriate for aesthetic reasons.
