When carious tooth substance is removed, it must be replaced. Depending on the dental findings and individual wishes there are various options available. Currently, this “repair work” can be carried out without being visible any longer. With the help of so-called tooth-colored fillings the teeth can be treated highly aesthetical and discreet. Our dental office offers you the following aesthetic and mouth-compatible fillings:
Synthetic fillings – composites
The synthetic fillings – also called composites – are a special, tooth-compatible mixture of synthetic and ceramic material. The composites adapt excellently to the natural color of the tooth and are suitable for small up to medium damages. They have a smooth surface that resembles your own tooth.
These fillings are often subject to a fee, as the health insurance companies do not cover them. For more information on the treatment options with synthetic fillings please ask us in our office.
Since amalgam fillings are no longer carried out in our dental office, we use so called glass-ionomer cements as an alternative. The material is of whitish color, but the surface is somewhat rougher.
