What will a patient get with the restoration?
- Durability of composite restorations;
- Excellent polishability, and therefore gloss comparable to the gloss of natural enamel;
- Transparency and color, identical to healthy tooth tissues.
We use dental composite resins, such as Tokuyama Dental (Japan) and Parkell (USA) that contain silicon-zirconium and composite fillers with submicron-sized particles. To perform restoration properly, it is very important to have special complexes in adhesive systems of these materials. This prevents the development of caries under the restorative material, as well as increased tooth sensitivity in the future.
Due to their high strength and premium aesthetics, it is possible to apply these composites to any group of teeth (both front and side) regardless of the defects.
How is the aesthetic restoration with the Parkell and Tokuyama composites performed?
- Determining color, transparency and shape of a future artistic restoration in agreement with a patient. If a large volume of restoration work with changes in tooth shape, size and position in the dental arcade is required, a preliminary model is made to elaborate all details, while the patient can see what his teeth will look like and thus, can make corrections.
- Inducing anesthesia.
- Removing damaged dental tissues.
- Putting a rubber dam isolating system.
- Coating the tooth surface with an acid-based gel to remove trace micro particles and to create necessary conditions for applying an adhesive system.
- Application of the adhesive system to the tooth surface.
- Layering with composites and exposure of each layer to the light of a photopolymer lamp.
- Application of special sealant to the finished restoration.
- Final polishing with pastes of varying abrasiveness degrees.
There are some alternatives to composite restoration
- non-metal ceramic crowns
- dental inlays;
- dental onlays;
- max Press system veneers.
Complications of improperly performed tooth restoration:
- painful sensitivity when eating and drinking;
- dissimilarity of a restored tooth in color, shape and size;
- gum inflammation in the area of restored tooth;
- in case of improperly formed contact between teeth, food compaction can be observed with the further development of mucous membranes and bone tissues inflammation;
- nerve inflammation of the tooth if the cavity depth is improperly estimated;
- dental abrasion on the opposite jaw and pain when biting in case of "high filling";
- changes in the temporomandibular joint (pain, crunch, clicks) in case of improperly formed dental occlusion;
- distortion of a smile line, central axis displacement, asymmetry, lip protrusion;
- articulation defects and so on.
