Porcelain and Composite Fillings

Porcelain and Composite Fillings 1Dental bonding and onlays can be an excellent way to treat and conceal tiny to big regions of deterioration. To construct long-lasting restorations for their patients, the dentists at Dental Antalya use high-quality materials, sophisticated technology, and advanced techniques, resulting in natural-looking results that are nearly unnoticeable.

Fillings made of porcelain

Before we discuss about using Porcelain & Composite Fillings to restore teeth, we want to make sure that our patients are aware of the reasons for these restorations and why they are necessary.

Dental decay is the most prevalent dental issue. Dental tooth decay, commonly known as dental caries, is a lesion that develops inside the dentin layer of the tooth.

Caries can form in any area of the tooth, as well as on the exposed root surface. The top or bottom surfaces of the back (posterior) teeth, inside the fissures of the tooth, are the most prevalent places for it to occur. Degeneration at the mesial and distal (interproximal) levels is also prevalent. Between the teeth, a cavity develops. The mesial surface is located in the front of your mouth, while the distal surface is located in the back.

Porcelain and Composite Fillings 2Preventive measures to avoid degradation

There is no miracle cure for tooth decay, no red wine, no coconut oil, no other gimmicks, save for drinking fluoride water. The rest is up to you and your oral hygiene routine’s consistency and regularity.

Brushing your teeth properly at least twice a day is the most effective strategy to avoid decay.

Tooth cavity treatment

The only way to keep a tooth cavity from expanding is to remove it from the tooth after it has formed. Complete cavity removal is not possible at home because it necessitates the use of dental instruments such as drills and others. Following the dentist’s removal of the decay, the tooth must be repaired with the appropriate material.

Porcelain and Composite Fillings 3Dental bonding, also known as composite filling, as well as ceramic onlays and inlays, serve the same goal. Teeth that require restorations using feelings and onlays, as opposed to dental crowns, may have much more tooth structure left and have not had root canal therapy.

Dental bonding, often known as aesthetic bonding or composite filling, is a procedure that restores damaged teeth by using particular resin materials. The composite material, like porcelain, can be tinted to match the colour of your teeth, resulting in a natural-looking replacement. The composite, unlike porcelain, is a porous material that is softer and yellows with time as it absorbs the colour from the foods and liquids we consume.

Composite fillings aren’t as long-lasting as a well-placed porcelain or ceramic onlay, thus they’re not suggested for major restorations.
