Composite Restoration

We closely follow the latest treatment approaches to protect and restore your jaw, oral and dental health and to make it look aesthetic and beautiful.

Composite restorations are applications that provide a healthy appearance to the teeth after procedures such as tooth damage or caries treatment. Composite fillings look very close to natural teeth, so patient satisfaction after the application is quite high.

Composite restoration is an aesthetically advantageous filling option. It is placed on the tooth in layers, so it requires careful and relatively long work. However, a natural and aesthetic appearance emerges after the application. For this reason, the procedure is preferred quite frequently.

What is Composite Restoration?

The terms “composite filling” or “composite restoration” describe a type of resin used as a filling material when there is decay or damage to the tooth. Composite fillings can be prepared in different shades and produce a very good aesthetic result because they are natural tooth color.

Composite resin adheres to the natural structure of the tooth. It also requires less tooth structure to be removed or filed, so more teeth are preserved. In addition, the composite material is highly durable. For these reasons, it is a frequently preferred application especially for front tooth restoration.

Composite filling can give high quality results in a very short time. Because this coating is completed by working on the patient without prior preparation. However, other advantages are that it prevents tooth sensitivity and allows the natural tooth to be damaged very little.

Composite restorations should not be used for very large fillings. It is also not preferred for difficult back teeth for long-lasting and successful results. This is because the material is not as resistant to strength as amalgam and other filling options.

Application of Composite Restoration

The application process of this procedure may vary depending on which tooth it will be performed for and the patient’s current oral and dental health. However, the basic procedure is as follows;

  • First, the area is numbed with local anesthesia.
  • The decayed or damaged part is corrected and cleaned.
  • Then the filling material is applied in layers.
  • After each layer, the filling is hardened with a special light.
  • The filling is shaped and polished.

The procedure will be permanent for a long time if regular visits to the dentist are made and care is taken for oral and dental care. Substances such as smoking, alcohol, sugary and carbonated drinks damage the teeth as well as the health of the body. At this point, the patient should take into account that oral and dental health is a whole and avoid habits that harm oral and dental health.
