Filling therapy


Composite fillings are a type of tooth-colored filling used to rebuild tooth structures as part of caries and maintenance therapy.

Here is some important information about composite fillings:

Material: Composite fillings consist of a plastic resin that is reinforced with fine glass or ceramic particles. These materials make the filling durable and resistant to chewing pressure in the mouth.

Aesthetics: A major advantage of composite fillings is their aesthetic appearance. Because they can be made in different colors, they can be matched to the natural color of the tooth, resulting in an inconspicuous appearance. This makes them particularly popular for treating front teeth or other visible areas of the mouth.

Applications: Composite fillings are used in the treatment of cavities by removing the infected tissue and filling the affected area with composite material. They can also be used to repair small defects or cracks in the teeth to restore their shape and function. In addition, composite materials are often used for cosmetic dental corrections such as tooth shaping, tooth lengthening or closing gaps between teeth.

Treatment process: The placement of a composite filling usually requires only one treatment session. First, the dentist removes the decayed tissue or prepares the damaged tooth. Then the composite material is applied and shaped in layers and cured with a special lamp. After curing, the filling is polished and adjusted to the natural tooth shape to achieve an aesthetically pleasing result.

Advantages of composite fillings:
  • Aesthetics: they offer natural aesthetics and are almost indistinguishable from the surrounding teeth.
  • Conservative: Composite fillings often require less tooth substance removal than other types of fillings, which better preserves the healthy tooth.
  • Repairability: In the event of damage, composite fillings can be easily repaired or replaced.
  • Biocompatibility: They are well compatible with the tooth and surrounding tissues.
  • Durability: The durability of composite fillings depends on various factors, including the size of the filling, the location in the mouth and the patient’s oral hygiene. However, with proper care and regular dental check-ups, composite fillings can last a long time.
  Overall, composite fillings are a popular choice for patients seeking an esthetic and long-lasting solution for restoring dental structures.
