One of the most common diseases of the oral cavity is tooth decay, which can occur both in healthy teeth and in a filling.
In our dental practice, we try to preserve as much of your own as yet undamaged dental tissue during the treatment. Modern aesthetic photocomposite fillings, the so-called "white seals", allow us gentler treatment. Unlike amalgam fillings, they bond to the tooth by a so-called adhesive bond; in other words, they reinforce the damaged tooth. This is a way to prevent the repaired tooth from breaking.
How does it work?
We perform the entire procedure in the interest of your comfort and convenience with the help of local anesthesia, which ensures that the tooth drilling itself is completely painless. The preparation (drilling) removes tissue damaged by decay, including any old fillings. The resulting defect is then replaced by a filling, which is modeled into the original shape of the tooth so that it does not interfere with the bite. Finally, the surface is polished. A necessary tool for this performance is a kofferdam. This rubber membrane insulates the operating field and guarantees us 100% dryness when sealing.
The whole procedure duration varies according to the extent of the tooth decay. In the interest of work efficiency, time and client finances, we often perform so-called block remediation, which is the treatment of several teeth within one appointment.
The photocomposite "white" filling is made of a mixture of dental resins and glasses and is light-cured. It is highly aesthetic, using various color shades allows you to very faithfully imitate the individual color of your tooth. Once made, the patient can successfully bitten immediately.
