In order to protect a damaged, hollow, or injured tooth from further damage, we certainly need tooth filling. Not just for aesthetics, but also for restoring chewing features.
The aesthetic filling has now almost completely replaced the amalgam filling. The most common aesthetic filling is the composite, also called light-binding filling.
Aesthetic tooth filling is not just a solid color, but is layered from multiple colors so that it resembles the tooth most closely, so it is almost invisible in the mouth.
They can be used for small to medium tooth decay.
It may be that after removing the stained areas, we find a great lack of material that we can no longer save the teeth with a "normal" filling. In this case, so-called deposits (inlay, onlay, overlay) are recommended.
The insert can be made of plastic, ceramic or gold.
For the first time, we remove the scaly parts and take a imprint. Then the dental prostheses complete the perfect seal.
And for the second time, the deposit is handed over, which we'll stick to right away.
