Aesthetic fillings

Fillings are just fillings – we all know what they are, when they are needed and how they’re done. When a cavity is detected on a tooth, the dentist grabs the drill, does the preparation, and fills the cavity with some tooth coloured material. What is so special about aesthetic fillings then?
Well, fillings are indeed great to treat teeth with cavities, preserving them for years and preventing further damage. But fillings are not only used for functional treatment. In fact, in today’s dentistry, fillings are used in great numbers for cosmetic indications specifically. The list of purely cosmetic indications is quite long which really shows that aesthetic fillings can be used in a versatile way to improve the patient’s appearance.

The list includes but is not limited to:

  • chipped or cracked teeth
  • worn off tooth enamel
  • damage caused by grinding
  • teeth positioned wide apart, with gaps between them
  • discoloured teeth

How are 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!
