The most common applications of conservative treatments are dental fillings. Filling applications mean that the decay in the tooth is cleaned and repaired with an auxiliary filling material. During the treatment, amalgam filling treatment or composite filling treatment is applied. The choice of treatment method is determined after a detailed examination by the dentist.

Amalgam Filling Treatment

Amalgam fillings obtained from a mixture of different metals are preferred especially in the treatment of caries in the posterior teeth due to their strong structure. This filling material, which is easy and fast to apply, is used in people with mercury allergy due to the mercury material it contains. Compared to ceramic fillings, amalgam fillings offer a more durable structure. However, due to their dark appearance, they are not preferred for anterior teeth that need aesthetic filling treatment.

Composite Filling Treatment

Porcelain filling materials, which also offer an aesthetic appearance, are used within the scope of composite filling treatments. This filling treatment, also known as onlay or inlay treatment, is especially preferred for anterior teeth. Thanks to the special ceramic or composite material, the caries in the anterior teeth are treated aesthetically. Composite filling treatments take longer than amalgam filling treatments. It may take two or three sessions to complete the entire filling process.
