Restorative Dentistry

 

The treatment of teeth that have been damaged due to various reasons is called restorative dental treatment. Thanks to restorative dental treatment, disturbances such as teeth damage, and malalignment are treated. In this treatment, both aesthetic and functional losses of the patient are eliminated by restoring the damage and loss of function caused by decay or non-rotten causes. Who wouldn't want to have a nice and impressive smile?

 

Restorative dental treatment should be determined in accordance with the facial features of the person. It is aimed to keep the old natural appearance, ensure functionality, and a beautiful smile of the person as a treatment result. Although the procedures performed are more or less similar to one another, each treatment is carried out with attention to detail and meticulousness since everyone has a characteristic jaw and tooth structure.

 

Restorative dental treatment does not have any side effects. Restorative dental treatment can be applied to people of any age. The treatment method the person needs is decided in line with the pre-treatment examination process. After the treatment method is shared with the person, the treatment process gets started. The materials used in the treatment process are biocompatible and do not harm teeth. With restorative dental treatment, the experienced damage on the patient's tooth is treated, and a pleasant appearance through a beautiful smile is achieved.

 

Aesthetic Fillers

 

Smiles with a natural and aesthetic appearance are designed with aesthetic fillers. Moreover, they are also used in the treatment of diseases such as damage caused by decay or non-rotten causes, chewing disorders. Teeth that need treatment for aesthetic or cosmetic reasons are treated with aesthetic fillings. A composite filling, commonly known as "white filling", is placed on the tooth while it is soft. Then the halogen is hardened with light and chemically bonded to the tooth.

 

A composite filling is mostly used in aesthetic filling treatments. Apart from composite filling, amalgam filling is the least preferred method among porcelain filling and amalgam filling treatments. Since amalgam filling does not provide an aesthetic benefit, composite and porcelain fillings are generally preferred.

 

Aesthetic fillings have changed with developing technology. In the past, metal fillings were known as a frequently preferred treatment method since they lasted longer. However, today, the material contents of aesthetic fillings are much stronger and it is known as a much longer-lasting, aesthetic, and healthy treatment method compared to metal fillings. How long aesthetic fillings last depends on the person. The fillings which are on people prioritize their dental health and get regular dental care remain much longer.

 

Inlay and Onlay Dental Restorations (Ceramic Fillings)

 

Inlay and onlay filling treatments are treatment methods applied to undamaged teeth. In summary, it can also be called a type of restoration among fillings and veneers. Some teeth may not have dental tissue that can be filled. Likewise, they may be too damaged for coating. Inlay and onlay tooth restorations (ceramic fillings) are applied to these types of teeth. So what are the differences between these two?

 

The difference in fillings made of ceramic or reinforced composite is related to the area they cover. The inlay is more similar to the filling in structure and is located between the mounds on the chewing surface of the teeth. Onley is applied in a way to cover one or more chewing mouthparts.

 

Inlay and onlay dental restorations (ceramic fillings) are treatments that are completed in two stages. First, existing caries are cleaned, and the measurements are taken according to the prepared tooth and surrounding teeth. That way, a temporary filling is made. In the second appointment, the temporary filling is removed and the inlays or onlays are being adhered to the tooth/teeth.

What should be considered after restorative dental treatment?

There is no clear detail to be considered after restorative dental treatment. Sensitivity can be felt for a few days, depending on its nature, size, and how deep the caries are. This is a situation that will be felt for a while.
