Composite restorations: Ingredients composite It is a mixture of ceramic (special glass) and acrylic resin (a kind of plastic) which is used as a paste in special tubes to fill teeth.
In composite restorations, there are several additional steps than amalgam restorations. For tooth color fillings, after cleaning the caries, the composite material fills the tooth layer in layers and then each layer is strengthened by shining a special ray by Light Cure. After filling the cavity, the extra parts are removed and formed into natural teeth and polished.
The main advantage Repair With composite beauty more teeth than filling with Amalgam Sometimes, by combining different colors, the dentist can get the right color according to the color of the teeth and fill it with materials that are exactly the same color as the teeth. It fills and requires less tooth shaving than amalgam restorations.
In restorations with composite materials, the sensitivity of the teeth during chewing, after filling the teeth, is more than restorations with amalgam. Very small cracks or leaks of food and bacteria between the composites and the teeth over time may cause bacteria to penetrate and cause secondary caries in the deeper parts of the teeth. Finally, the strength of the composite is less than amalgam and therefore the preferred choice. It is not in the case of mill teeth that are subjected to more pressure.
In view of all the above, choosing the right type of filling material is preferable with the dentist.
