Your desire that a filling resemble your tooth as closely as possible means we must select a clear criteria of quality
Today, materials used for preparing fillings are made of nano-composites. They show all the properties of a natural tooth - transparency, durability, individual shades and enamel designs.
STAGES OF TREATMENT
There are several generations of composites, each of which has its pluses and minuses. In cases when there are not very many healthy tooth tissues left and the composite filling will not cling to the tooth, we propose a ceramic filling.
Inserting a filling takes 30 minutes to 1 hour.
We then polish the filling.
We make a rational decision and take action accordingly – if it becomes obvious that the filling made of a composite will no long hold on or will not provide the necessary aesthetic effect, we propose a variant made from a different material.

MYTHS AND QUESTIONS ANSWERS
1. What is the difference between a filling and ceramic inlay?
The main differences are the material and method of manufacture.
The filling is made by the doctor directly in the chair from composite materials. The ceramic inlay is made using computer modeling from a single block of ceramics in the laboratory. The inlays are not subject to grinding, like composite fillings, and their lifespan is over 10 years.
It is recommended to restore a small defect with a filling, not very extensive in volume (up to 30% of tooth tissues). The ceramic inlay is indicated for treatment of a big lesion of the chewing surface with preservation of a large array of tooth tissues; treatment of a deep lesion of the tooth with preservation of the walls; as a recovery option after endodontic treatment. Also, ceramic inlays more correctly transfer the mechanical load that occurs when chewing on the restored tooth tissues.
2. Can a tooth ache after caries treatment?
There is the concept of “postoperative sensitivity” with very deep lesions in the immediate vicinity of the nerve in living teeth. It is a slight, barely noticeable discomfort after treatment, which in some cases can last up to several weeks. On average, this discomfort remains for 2-3 days.
3. If the filling will disturb me, what should I do?
Our doctors follow the principle “Measure 7 times, cut once”. Based on this, the correction of the filling immediately after the restoration of the tooth is minimal, but it must be comfortable for the patient. The patient's sensations can be distorted due to the action of anesthesia, a long horizontal position or eventually banal muscle fatigue, which is why when the patient undergoes adaptation to a new tooth surface, after 1-3 days new discomfort points can be felt. Your doctor will make a correction.
4. What is the life time of photopolymer fillings?
The lifespan completely depends on the individual anatomic features of the patient (the presence of bruxism, abnormal bite) and lifestyle (bad habits, diet, traumatic sports). On average, the life of the filling is about 5 years. Your doctor-curator will provide the recommendations for the replacement of old fillings on a routine examination every 6 months.
5. Will I get anesthesia?
In most cases, yes. In some cases, in teeth with treated canals or surface caries, you can try to do without it, the patient’s comfort and safety is always a priority.
