AESTHETIC DENTAL RESTORATIONS
In our dental medicine practice, we pay special attention to both the aesthetic aspect and the high quality of our dental services, remembering that our priority is to follow the scientifically approved treatment methods implicitly. We use the state-of-the-art, top-quality materials only, which are manufactured mainly in the USA and in Japan, as well as some of the other top-quality restorative products such as 3M ESPE Filtek Ultimate® and GRADIA® DIRECT, (white) composite filling materials. These materials enable us to provide our patients with a high-quality tooth protection, which prevents further deterioration of one’s teeth, while they simultaneously match our standards of exquisite aesthetics, of high-quality based on their natural look and long-standing functionality. Each composite filling is built up in layers with carefully chosen shades of the material, in order to blend in the composite filling with the natural colour of the tooth tissue.
All dental fillings are made by following the scientifically approved treatment methods and the state-of the- art researches in the field of dental medicine, because our goal is to achieve the best therapy results for each specific tooth. In tooth cavity preparation (the process of cleaning the cavity), we follow the principles of the micro-invasive aesthetic dentistry. Nowadays, the technology used in dental medicine has advanced to such an extent that, in fact, the doctors of dental medicine cannot keep-up with all of the latest researches in the field of dental medicine and use all of them in their everyday work. The main principle is to preserve the healthy tooth tissue to the maximum extent in the cavity preparation process, before the dental fillings are made. The healthy tooth tissue that can, otherwise, be lost in the process cannot regenerate and can only be replaced by an artificial material.
White (composite) fillings have many advantages as opposed to the amalgam fillings, because they do not contain mercury substances, they connect to the tooth tissue on a chemical level and the end result of the treatment matches the first-rate aesthetic standards.
Composite fillings form an extremely firm and long-lasting bond to the enamel surface, while the shape and the colour of the filling are carefully chosen to match the identical colour of the actual tooth.
Inlay, Onlay and Overlay
In cases in which a large part of the hard tooth substance needs to be reconstructed on the back teeth, we recommend making a ceramic filling, which would replace the regular filling. The function of the ceramic filling is the strengthening of the tooth structure especially during the mastication process as well as preserving its shape and natural colour.
The advantages of the ceramic fillings as opposed to the regular dental fillings are their long-lasting durability (approximately 10 to 15 years), maximum protection against tooth decay and the strengthening of the remaining tooth structure.
The ceramic are made indirectly, in cooperation with a dental laboratory.
