What are Esthetic Fillings?
Esthetic fillings are required when there is a cavity or a piece of the tooth is broken, the need of restoring this defect with a material which has similar colour to the natural tooth is very important to keep a nice smile. Many shades are available in order to match the existing tooth colour. The dentist will shape the filling to replace the missing part of the tooth and which will make it look more natural to human eyes. Whiting fillings are usually done in one visit.
The way these fillings stick to the tooth structure is very innovative. Three steps are required to successfully stick the white filling to the tooth. First, conditioning the tooth surface to accept the bond. Then applying the bond to the conditioned surface. Finally, applying the white filling to the bonded surface.
