Ceramic fillings are a kind of porcelain or a kind of filler, which is formed from a composite or porcelain reinforced in the laboratory by a type of porcelain, which restores the loss of material occurring in the teeth to complement only the missing parts of the tooth due to caries, canal treatment or trauma. According to the composite fillings, they are much more compatible with the teeth they are applied to the neighboring teeth. The ceramic inlays and inlays are protected by the natural shape of the tooth as in the same lamina veneers. Such fillers are preferred to replace the amalgam fillings which are metallic and dark in the teeth on the back side in patients with aesthetic and comfort expectancy.
In cases where a large number of fillings are required, the dental fillings to be prepared in the laboratory are placed in the second session after the dental preparation in one session and after the measurement, they save time. Since the fillers prepared in this way are not prepared in the mouth as in the conventional fillings, they are perfectly compatible with the teeth by their preparation in the laboratory. The treatment life of ceramic fillers is longer than composite fillings. Since porcelain filler has the same hardness as the tooth, it prevents breakage in the bite force and contributes to the health of the tooth as it used to be. Since they are also prepared in tooth color, the ceramic fillings are too natural to be distinguished from the outside with the naked eye.
Ceramic fillers are a filling method developed to protect the healthy tooth tissue in cases where there is too much material loss in the tooth and the tooth needs to be shrinked and the crown is applied. Because the image is more aesthetically pleasing and more useful, amalgam fillers are the preferred fillers. These fillings, which have a natural appearance that cannot be distinguished by the naked eye, have a structure that prevents the colorings made by the cigarette or other dyestuffs that may occur over time due to the improved polishing techniques. People can move freely, as if there are no fillers in their teeth, and can have healthy and aesthetic teeth for many years.
HOW TO DO CERAMIC FILLING?
First of all the tooth of the person is cleared of all the bruises. Then, the concave areas, ie, the areas which limit the lines and the lines that may prevent the construction of the porcelain part, are arranged by supporting them with suitable porcelain fillers. Porcelain filler is taken to the laboratory and the precise measure of the tooth to be made. Then the gap of the tooth to be filled with ceramic filler is closed with temporary filler. It is prepared by precision measurement technician in the laboratory by pouring with sensitive gypsum material.
In the model prepared according to the measure taken by the doctor, the missing parts of the porcelain filling are completed with the appropriate wax modeling in order to complete the anatomical form of the tooth. Ceramic inlay or onley material using candle package is obtained in the laboratory environment to complete the missing tooth form exactly. In order to ensure a perfect fit of the material with the tooth, it is performed by an experienced dental technician to correct the porcelain piece over the mold according to the reference plaster model.
The inlay or onlay filling piece prepared by the technician is sent to the doctor and the mouth is tested with the porcelain process. If the porcelain is fully compatible, it is adapted by the doctor to the adhesive system and is integrated into the tooth. Polishing and polishing application is done on the fill. In this way, the treatment is terminated.
