Seal - frequently asked questions
What types of fillings?

Fillings can be amalgam, resin composites, glass Ionomer, gold alloy inlays and onlays and inlays.

Amalgam fillings are the most affordable and long lasting (15 years) but they will not restore natural tooth appearance. Rarely causes allergic reactions and are considered bio-compatible.

Composite resin fillings are tooth-colored and consists plastic mixture filled with glass. They have a lifespan of about 8-10 years. Can cause tooth sensitivity due to absorption in dentin tubular nerve.

Glass ionomer fillings can be used only where teeth are subjected to high pressures due to occlusion. Emits a small amount of flour favorable for sensitive teeth. Not resistant to fracture and therefore are used only for lateral plombarii or tooth roots.

Gold alloy fillings are resistant to wear, fracture, corrosion or frosting. Not provide the natural appearance of the tooth but are bio-compatible and protects teeth opposite.

Inlays and onlays are porcelain white fillings, durable solid colored tooth. Are used when a tooth is too damaged for a filling but not ordinary needs a crown. Specially made for the friction surface of molars.

How do I whiten a filling which was blackened?

Amalgam or resin fillings can not be bleached. The best thing is that the filling to be replaced. This after he made a preliminary whitening to ensure improved natural tooth color.

How long should I keep a filling?

Dental offices usually give a warranty of 6 months. This means that any problem you have with this time filling will solve nothing. But it yourself and according to proper oral hygiene and constant, our environment and live (those working with powders are prone to decay). But as I said above plobele have normal durability 8-15 years.

Why fall fillings?

There are several possible reasons. In people under stress who grind their teeth, fillings fails over time. Or maybe root, being too large, no teeth grip the walls. Abundant salivation is another reason that is interposed between the tooth and filling material used in the latter. A ultimo possible reason is insufficient curing of the material.

What if I fell filling?

Try to protect the tooth with a sugar-free gum (which causes pain) put in place the filling fallen. If after this appear more pain and the tooth appears highest mean root infection reached. Then you must remove chewing gum, do not let leftovers to go there and rinse with mouthwash.

But whatever you do, go as fast as a dentist! As you go faster, so resolve quickly with less money.
