Broken teeth that are result of a trauma can get its natural look in one session with aesthetical materials.

If there is some component loss in teeth, filling is necessary. It is usually applied to the back molar teeth. Fillings are not only aesthetic for look but also durable to the chewing pressure and a safe long term treatment.
Creating an appropriate cavity is the main point in fillings. The natural look before decaying should be achieved also with filling. The type of filling depends on the teeth that it is applied.
Molar teeth use more chewing force than other teeth. Therefore they need more durable material for filling. Sometimes front teeth also may loose its components and need filling applications.
The most common filing material used to be silver amalgam for molar teeth however they were not aesthetical enough.
Porcelain fillings are preferred instead of amalgams because they look more aesthetical and useful.

In the first session the measurement of cavities that are formed without doing any harm to the healthy part of the tooth is sent to the labs. Porcelain filling is prepared according to the cavity measures for the missing part of the tooth. In the second session the filling prepared is applied to the cavity.This porcelain filling which has the same hardness as the tooth will prevent the cracks that result from biting and make the tooth as healthy as before. Thanks to its natural tooth color, the filling is not recognized with bare eye.
Nowadays, fillings are made so as to match with the tooth color that are appropriate to the tooth form. In these fillings staining from smoking or similar coloring forces is prevented as well.
Patient uses these healthy and aestetical fillings for long time as if they don’t have any fillings.
It is a protetic work done on slight corrosion of the frontal part of the tooth by applying thin layer porcelain material. Since porcelain is prepared thin its emission and reflection of light is very close to the natural tooth’s. Hence, it is aesthetically very well applied. Another advantage is that the tooth is not cut too much letting for a future operation of porcelain coating.
