An aesthetic filling (composite resin) is used to repair a tooth affected by tooth decay, a crack, a fracture, etc., giving it back its function and a normal shape. The carious or affected part will be removed and restored with a composite resin.
There are many types of blanking materials available, each with their advantages.
Our dentists can advise you on the best option for restoring your teeth. Composite resin fillings (tooth color) are the most widely used. Resin fillings match the color of the teeth, making them more aesthetic for restoring anterior teeth or more visible teeth.
They are very strong and will be in place for many years, giving you a long, beautiful smile.
The reasons for a composite resin filling
- Broken or fractured tooth
- Decayed tooth
- Used tooth
- Chipped tooth
How does the composite resin shutter procedure work?
Composite resin fillings are usually done in one appointment. Under anesthesia, the dentist will remove the decay. The cavity will then be thoroughly cleaned and prepared before receiving the new filling. If decay is near the dental nerve, a special medicine will be applied for extra protection. The composite resin filling will be precisely inserted, modeled and polished to restore the shape and function of your tooth.
Porcelain fillings are "inlays" or "onlays" that are made in the laboratory and then glued to the tooth. It is possible to give them the same shade as that of neighboring teeth and they are resistant to staining. Porcelain restorations usually cover most of the tooth.
It is normal to feel warm and cold after a composite resin filling treatment, but this will subside soon after you adjust your tooth to the new restoration.
You will receive instructions as a result of your treatment. Good oral hygiene combined with good eating habits and regular visits to the dentist will help preserve your new restorations.
