We offer all types of fillings. The most suitable option is selected after a careful evaluation of the damage to your tooth taking into account your individual wishes and preferences as well.
PHOTOCOMPOSITE (WHITE FILLINGS)
This is the least invasive method. Thanks to unique characteristics of photocomposite materials it is not necessary to remove as much tooth tissue as in the case of a standard filling. It also offers the highest esthetic quality thanks to a wide selection of colors. This means that after the procedure is completed, the filling is practically indistinguishable from a natural tooth. Usage of operational microscope and magnifying glasses allows us to remove the damaged tissue very selectively and thus eliminate the risk of damage to your other healthy teeth. Applying photocomposite is more demanding from time and technology perspective. However, if performed well, such filling will last significantly longer than the standard amalgam filling.
GLASS IONOMER CEMENT
Is the most frequently used alternative to photocomposite filling. It is used in cases when it is technically impossible to offer photocomposite filling. Examples where use of this filling is recommended may include poorly accessible wisdom teeth or treatment of children which needs to be completed quicker. in the back section of the teeth, this filling is still satisfactory. Durability of glass ionomer cement is lower than photocomposite so it migh be necessary to supplement it after longer period of time.
AMALGAM (GREY FILLINGS)
Use of grey fillings (amalgams) is declining because of esthetic as well as functional reasons. Nevertheless, there are still situations where the amalgam is irreplaceable. At our clinic we only use premium non-gamma 2 amalgams. They have better composition than standard amalgams usually covered by insurance companies. They don't turn black, last longer and are much gentler to the tooth tissue.
