aesthetic fillings different
from regular fillings?
There are of course similarities as the entire logic of how a filling is applied does not depend on the indication. If there are damaged, decayed parts, those have to be removed first, the prepared tooth surface treated with materials that help the filling bond to the tooth and apply the filling material layer by layer.
Here comes the tricky part when it comes to aesthetic fillings. Your dentist will always need to thoroughly evaluate the surrounding teeth to check the shade, the unique colour pattern, opacity and shape of them. Your face structure, the direction of the chewing forces is also taken into account. Your dentist will select the right materials and tools accordingly and will build up the aesthetic filling little by little – achieving a perfectly life-like result. Each tooth with an aesthetic filling is a real piece of art!
