Cosmetic Fillings for Teeth

The technique of fixing cosmetic fillings for teeth is one of the most prominent techniques applied to eliminate the deformities that teeth face. These cosmetic fillings are a type of regular dental fillings that have the same color as natural teeth, so they are an alternative to regular fillings that may differ in color and distort the overall appearance of these teeth.

These fillings fill any gaps, cracks, or compensate for the damaged part of the teeth in a way that preserves their overall cosmetic appearance without showing the others the appearance of the filling and the difference in color from the color of natural teeth. At The Dental Center , we use the latest technologies to fix cosmetic fillings for teeth.

Reasons for Resorting to Cosmetic Fillings for Teeth

Cosmetic fillings for teeth are one of the most prominent cosmetic medical techniques that many doctors have resorted to in order to maintain an ideal and attractive appearance of the teeth, free from any deformities, and this is due to the existence of some types of defects or different reasons that may require them.

  • Cases suffering from fractures in the structures of their teeth.
  • Cases showing cracks and crevices on the surface of their teeth.

Types of Cosmetic Fillings for Teeth

Cosmetic fillings for teeth are among the most important methods applied by all doctors recently to get rid of any complaints from patients about the appearance of their teeth. There are also many types of these fillings to ensure that every patient has a suitable type for them, regardless of their age or health needs to get rid of their dental problems. These types may be:

  • Composite fillings

These fillings are among the first medical fillings discovered many years ago, and they are the best for treating cavities in the front teeth or front teeth that need filling. These fillings consist of a mixture of plastic and resin, which are fixed on the teeth while in their soft form until they dry and take the solid shape that is shiny and reflects on the teeth, giving them a glossy appearance.

The great demand for them is due to the ease of installing them and their resemblance to natural teeth in shape, color, and size, so they do not differ from them. They are characterized by being solid, and the degree of their stability on the surface of the teeth is high, but despite this, their installation period in the oral cavity does not exceed 10 years.

  • Ceramic fillings

These fillings are the most commonly used in direct cosmetic cases as they are the most compatible in shape with the patient’s natural teeth, in addition to their durability and hardness, making them the strongest and most resistant to erosion and discoloration. These fillings are most suitable in cases that require filling gaps and spaces between teeth and each other.

  • Glass ionomer fillings

These are fillings made of a mixture of acrylic and glass, which are a preferred option for filling tooth gaps in children going through the stage of tooth formation. One of the most important features that distinguish these fillings and make them suitable for children is that they release fluoride, which resists cavities or any problems that may affect the teeth. However, despite their efficiency, they are fillings that are easily prone to brittleness and cracking.

  • Metal fillings

These fillings are the traditional fillings made of the most famous types of metals, namely gold and silver, in addition to some metals present in a very small proportion, such as zinc, tin, mercury, and copper.

These fillings are the most practical, so they are used with the back teeth and molars in the last area of the mouth due to their ability to withstand the pressure caused in this area from friction when speaking or chewing different types of food. Furthermore, their color differs from the color of natural teeth, making them unsuitable for any cosmetic procedures or individuals who want to improve the appearance of their teeth.

What are the disadvantages of cosmetic fillings for teeth?

Just as cosmetic fillings have many advantages mentioned in the previous lines, some disadvantages have also emerged that some patients may suffer from, which could be one of the following possibilities:

  • They are resistant to erosion but have no ability to resist any other harmful factors that may affect or damage the teeth.
  • The lifespan of these fillings does not exceed 7 or 10 years.

Duration of Cosmetic Fillings for Teeth

Cosmetic dental fillings are techniques that have a high degree of stability and last for long periods in the patient’s mouth. They are characterized by lasting with the patient for a longer period than traditional fillings, which is why we notice that they exceed 10 and 15 years in the mouths of different patients. You can learn about the cost of a single tooth filling through this article.

These cosmetic fillings can last even longer if they are taken care of and the medical instructions related to them are followed, in addition to adhering to proper dental and oral cavity care. Additionally, the quality of the filling and the quality of the materials used in its manufacture, as well as the brand name and its efficiency in performing its functional role for longer periods without being exposed to any problems or malfunctions that may affect it and its duration in the mouths of patients.

My Experience with Cosmetic Fillings for Teeth

The application of the technique of cosmetic fillings for teeth is one of the most widely used therapeutic methods in recent years to control the deformities that affected the teeth. Therefore, we notice many cases and diverse experiences of patients who underwent cosmetic dental filling procedures and obtained the desired results.

One of the most prominent cases and experiences that underwent cosmetic dental fillings is the engineer Abdel Rahman, who is over thirty years old and had been suffering from tooth pain problems for many years. With his neglect, the problem recurred until it became unbearable, and when he went to the specialist doctor, he discovered that he was suffering from cavities in some of his mouth’s teeth.

With the lack of treatment, the damage reached the nerves and penetrated, and it became necessary to remove it and try to preserve the remaining part of these teeth. Therefore, the optimal solution for him was to install medical fillings. When the doctor gave him the choice between traditional and cosmetic fillings, he chose cosmetic ones so that they would not draw attention. The results were effective for him, and he was able to restore his teeth’s ability to withstand the changing conditions they are exposed to in the oral cavity when eating or speaking.

Tips After Cosmetic Fillings for Teeth

It is possible to follow some tips, which, if adhered to, will maintain the filling, teeth, and which are:

  • Brushing teeth daily with toothpaste and a soft brush in order to maintain the healthy structures of the teeth, free from any deposits on their surface.
  • Using dental floss to get rid of any food remnants stuck between the teeth and their gaps, which may adversely affect the teeth.
  • Follow-up with a specialist doctor in case of exposure to any bruises or violent collisions that cause tooth fractures.
  • In case the filling is damaged, it should be replaced with another one to protect the teeth from cavities.

Cost of Cosmetic Fillings for Teeth

The cost of cosmetic fillings depends entirely on the doctor’s estimate of the procedure for installing the filling for each patient, taking into account the cost of the raw materials used in making these fillings and the medical devices that help in their application and how advanced and modern they are, in addition to the number of years of experience and the number of damaged teeth, the type of damage, and the procedures necessary to eliminate it.
