These cosmetic teeth fillings consist of a material called composite. It bonds to the tooth in a chemical way unlike the old fillers (Amalgam), which has gray color and it turns to black with time. The old fillers bonds to the tooth in a mechanic way, which needs to drill a hole in the tooth in special characteristics to make the fillers constant. On other hand, the new fillers don’t need to cut a large piece of the tooth. It only needs to remove the decay from the tooth and by this we preserve on a large amount of alive tissues. Therefore, the procedure of placement of composite fillings is a completely painless procedure. In addition, the new fillers have a better adhesion to the tooth than the old fillers . It adheres to the tooth by a special chemical bonding material. Then, we apply the composite material, and then the material gets hard by using a special fiber-optic light. In the final appearance of the tooth after restoring the tooth with the composite, no one can differentiate between the natural tooth tissues and the composite filling material unless we take an x-ray.
These fillers give the beauty to the tooth especially on the front teeth, if they were broken or have a decay. It can be used on the posterior teeth as well. These cosmetic fillings considered a part of the revolution in modern dentistry. The uses of composite material is not limited to filling the teeth. Now, it can be used to fill the spaces between the teeth especially front teeth, and it can be used to reshape the tooth.
And it becomes more beautiful when this operation is done by an expert with long experience as in our clinic. After placement the composite filling, the tooth will look 100% natural.
