What is Aesthetic Filling and Why Is It Applied?

Aesthetic fillings are applied with a material called composite, which can be easily shaped, hardens in halogen light and can be easily bonded to the tooth chemically. The aim of dental treatments applied today is that the treatment is visually satisfying as well as being functional. For this reason, the main goal is that the fillings made have a natural tooth appearance in terms of shape and color, the boundaries are not clear and the person cannot distinguish the filling from his own tooth.

With the development of technology, the material content of composite (aesthetic) fillings has been strengthened, and a more aesthetic, longer-lasting and healthier structure has been achieved compared to metal fillings. Composite fillings are frequently used in the clinical setting.

If attention is paid to routine oral care, deformation, leakage and cracking do not occur in composite fillings. Aesthetic fillings, which are maintained and polished in your routine dental check-ups between 6 months and 1 year, can remain in the mouth for a long time.

Should I have aesthetic filling or porcelain veneer?

The main purpose of dental treatment is to protect the tooth. For this reason, the size of the composite fillings made after the caries is cleaned should be evaluated in terms of breakage and veneer should be preferred in excessively large fillings. Composite fillings should be the first choice in smaller caries as they can be applied with minimal abrasion from the tooth.
