Aesthetic dental fillings made of white coloured filling materials are used to camouflage tooth structure and caries. Aesthetic fillings have a structure that can be quickly treated by light fillings and strengthening under the laser and never showing that the normal tooth is filling even under light. In some cases, the surface of children and molars has very deep cavities caused by pits and cracks, and bacteria can multiply and damage the teeth. As a special method of preventing this harmful process, the tooth is filled with liquid aesthetic filling material. The treatment process is completely painless. Thanks to these procedures, tooth decay in children is greatly reduced. Liquid aesthetic filler is recommended for children 6 years or older.
The aesthetic filler applied to decayed teeth, broken teeth or damaged teeth integrates with the tooth in its own structure hardness and appearance and gains a harmonious appearance that cannot be distinguished from the outside. Aesthetic fillings with a more beautiful smile and healthier structure compared to metal and mercury-like carcinogenic and bad-looking fillings are suitable and preferred in today's dentistry.
