In what cases a tooth filling?
The main cause of tooth decay is tooth decay, but the teeth may also be subjected to age-related changes (staining, abrasion, wedge-shaped defects), struck by a result of trauma (cleavage, broke off), improper oral hygiene, unhealthy diet and exposure to hazardous substances.
Caries – an irreversible process. When the cavity is detected as soon as possible to apply to the dentist. Otherwise, further destruction of the tooth will lead to pulpitis, and then you have “cause” to apply to the dentist unbearable toothache. The cost of treatment will be higher, as necessary to process and fill canals of the tooth. Treatment of dental caries is the formation of cavities and setting the seal. Filling a small cavity can be done painlessly and without anesthesia. With deep caries the use of anesthesia required. We use the most modern filling materials.
Wedge-shaped defects are deeper on the tooth surface in the area around the gums, non-carious origin. Causes of wedge-shaped defects are not fully understood, among the known factors – malocclusion, improper hygiene, diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, and even stress. According to various reports, wedge-shaped defects are found in 25-80% of the adult population. The traditional approach is closing the wedge-shaped defects with the filling material. Other non-carious lesions of teeth, such as various defects in the enamel, is also sealed.
When filling teeth, we use light-cured materials of the leading Western manufacturers Filtek Z250, Filtek Supreme (3M-Espe, USA), Esthet-X, Spectrum (Dentsply, USA), Herculite (Kerr, USA), Charisma (Kultzer, Germany). The use of modern materials allows us to not only fill small cavities, but also to restore the badly damaged teeth.
To restore badly damaged teeth may use restoration. Restoration of teeth – a weighty alternative to prosthetic crowns, as ceramic and cermet. Benefits of restoration: the maximum retained healthy tissue of the tooth, reducing the time of treatment. To increase the strength characteristics of these structures in metal (tie) or carbon (C-post) pins, to strengthen the channels of the teeth. In the treatment of complications of tooth (pulpitis and periodontitis) is carried out endodontic treatment with intracanal instrumentation leading manufacturers.
Veneers. If there are irregularities of one or more teeth, or darkening of the tooth, or you do not like the shape of the tooth – it is better to produce veneer – a thin pad on the ceramic lip, visible in the smile of the tooth surface. With veneers you can not only change the shape and size of teeth, but to get the maximum aesthetic effect.
First held professional oral hygiene, we clean the tooth surface of the pigment spots, debris and microorganisms. Then the tooth is handled by the thickness of the ceramic lining (maximum 0.5 mm) is removed and the impression made temporary composite veneers. During the second visit the temporary removable lining and veneer is connected to the enamel surface.
Veneers have all the properties of natural teeth – the same strength, refraction, color, thermal conductivity, abrasion and shine – like all your family dental. In addition, they are durable – do not change color over time, do not require special care: a simple brushing and toothpaste, floss use, office visits every six months hygiene – you enjoy your snow-white smile.
