What is Composite Filling?
Composite filling is a preferred filling process in the repair of tooth structure that is damaged due to cracks, fractures, decay or similar conditions. During the procedures, the damaged or decayed part of the tooth is removed and then the tooth is cleaned. In addition, special adhesives are applied to the teeth. After this procedure, composite fillings are placed on the teeth. But since the form of treatment produces aesthetically effective results in the teeth, it is also called as aesthetic filling.
Composite fillings are also known as resin fillings. It is produced using ceramics with different chemical components. With these fillings, biting and chewing in the mouth are strengthened. However, it can be used easily in the back teeth, also known as molars. It is also suitable for use on anterior teeth as it can be produced in the same color as the teeth.

Various examinations are made before composite filling applications. The first of these is the caries in the tooth to which the composite filling will be made. If there is caries in the tooth to be filled, these caries are cleaned first.

What are the Advantages of Composite Filling?

Composite Filling Instead of Amalgam
Composite filling, where tooth loss is experienced the least, is a filling material that has replaced amalgam fillings, known as aesthetic and white fillings, which are frequently used in dentistry. Generally, because of decayed teeth, broken or destroyed teeth, and gaps between teeth, composite filling material is used for both aesthetics and oral health. It is a widely used filling material because it can also be used in aesthetic treatments such as closing the functional disorders caused by tooth decay or gaps between the teeth and equalizing the lengths of broken-short teeth.
Amalgam fillings, which are a mixture of various metals used before composite fillings, were not a very happy treatment in terms of aesthetics, although they were strong in terms of structure. In addition, due to the unpleasant taste of the substance used in the mouth and the concerns about the harms of the mercury it contains, it leaves its place to composite fillings.
Bonding filler is applied personally.
The bonding method, which can be applied at almost any age, eliminates all kinds of aesthetic concerns in tooth structures. Bonding filling treatments are applied personally for those who do not like the shape of their teeth.
Since bonding dental treatment is an application that is completed in a short time, dentists are recommended to their patients for compensation for tooth fractures or lengthening requests. While bonding filling is done, the tooth surface is roughened by choosing the color first. With the bonding tooth application, a material compatible with the tooth is covered so that the filling can adhere to the tooth. The prepared composite is applied to the tooth and the material is hardened with laser light. After the placement is completed, the shaping process is done and the patient can return to his daily life after polishing.
Bonding Treatment duration takes an average of 30-60 minutes. The application can be completed faster and used for many years depending on the treatment method, the quality of the material and the success of the physician.
