Aesthetic dental fillings - a miracle that beautifies the smile
Aesthetic filling is often called aesthetic restoration.
In the last decades, dental scientific achievements have opened a new option in dentistry, a quality one, which allowed a transition from the treatment of a single tooth to the complete dental treatment, but at the same time durable, aesthetic. During this time, dentistry has significantly evolved in root canal treatment, direct aesthetic restorations or aesthetic dental fillings (composites).
Dental science has also evolved in the field of orthodontics, periodontology, implantology and dental surgery. This led clients to a new approach in dentistry. This branch of medicine became a branch of art and beauty, and clients began to realize that not only health, but also aesthetics is important for the quality of life. He blew a completely new wind in the community of dentists who began to apply the new technologies with the ingenuity and joy characteristic of artists. Dental procedures have become painless, comfortable and hygienic. They no longer identify with unpleasant or terrible sensations.
Society has been attracted by new ways to create a flawless smile. The scientific study carried out in the United States showed that a person with a beautiful smile is not only attractive, but seems healthy, more intelligent, more interesting, is more successful both on personal, as well as professional. Following this study, 99.7% of the interviewees declared that a smile is a social value, 96% said that a beautiful smile attracts people of the opposite sex, 74% said that an unattractive smile reduces career possibilities.
Below are the respondents' answers to the question:
"What do you notice first in a smile?"
- The position of the teeth;
- The color;
- The sincere smile;
- Lack of teeth;
- The "shine" of the smile.
In answer to the question "What makes an attractive smile?" they stated:
- Yellow teeth, dark in color;
- Lack of teeth;
- Broken teeth;
- Teeth damaged by caries, with "holes";
- Spaces between the teeth;
- Stained teeth.
Finally, to the question "How would you like to beautify your smile?", the most frequent answer was:
- I would like whiter, brighter teeth.
In another US survey, respondents to the question: "What was the last dental procedure done in the previous month?" they answered as follows: 86% - aesthetic restoration, 78% - teeth whitening at home, 55% - covering the teeth with porcelain (aesthetic restoration), 50% performed teeth whitening at the dentist's office, 25% - gingival remodeling. Therefore, the numbers show that cosmetic restoration is the most common procedure in the US. This is also what the pioneers of aesthetic dentistry say: "Without a doubt, the most frequently used dental procedure is the direct restoration."
The authorities of the dental community in the West say that minimal invasion is necessary today: "Our goal should be to constantly preserve what remains and not to meticulously restore what is missing. So the best dentistry is the least dentistry."
Aesthetic dental filling is currently the most sensitive method of dental restoration. The material used for aesthetic dental filling or direct aesthetic restoration is called composite or popularly - "esthetic filling". With it, the lack of dentin and enamel is restored. The composite has the same strength as silver fillings, is resistant to wear, releases fluoride that can prevent future caries formation.
There are several types of materials for fillings (seals), for example, they differ in color, reflection coefficient, modulus of elasticity, i.e. it has the ability to deform axially, etc. Therefore, the dentist will find the best method of reconstruction of the affected tooth.
Composite filling materials are the most used today. Due to the color similar to the teeth, you can find a color that is almost identical to that of the natural tooth, which makes it much more aesthetic, especially in the area of the front teeth or in the more visible areas. The teeth do not grind, therefore, they remain viable. The gum is not damaged. After the procedure, the teeth look very natural, even the professionals often do not notice the restored tooth.
