If the mouth and teeth are not cleaned adequately, the food residues left on the teeth accumulate on the tooth surface and this leads to the formation of bacteria. After a while, the teeth begin to rot. Tooth filling is a preferred method for problems that do not require tooth extraction in carious tooth treatments. After cleaning the caries in the tooth, a gap occurs in the cleaned part of the tooth. And sometimes this gap can cause toothache in the person. Therefore, this gap is filled with specially produced filling materials and the treatment of the decayed tooth is carried out.
What are the Types of Dental Fillings?
Amalgam filling is a type of filling that is formed due to caries or other reasons and is silver in color that closes the tooth cavities.
Amalgam fillings also contain mercury. Amalgam fillings can also be called silver fillings due to their color. This type of filling is not preferred much because it does not look aesthetically beautiful due to its color.
Composite filling is a preferred filling process in the repair of teeth that have been damaged as a result of conditions such as cracks, fractures and decay in the teeth. This form of treatment is frequently preferred because it produces aesthetically effective results on the teeth.
