When teeth have lost material due to various reasons, they are treated with dental filling. Dental caries is the most common cause of material loss in teeth. Especially bacteria found in sugary and carbohydrate-containing foods produce an acid that causes tooth decay. This acid damages the tooth enamel and causes dental caries. At first, the decay appears as opaque white lesions. This is the initial stage of caries and is called white spot lesion. As the caries progresses, it causes a yellow to brown discolouration and cavity. Caries that have not reached the vital part of the tooth can be treated with dental fillings.

Teeth may chip or crack as a result of acute or chronic trauma. Cracked and chipped teeth may cause hot-cold sensitivity. It may cause pain while eating sugar contained foods or chewing. Teeth can be treated with dental filling depending on the size of the fractured area.

Wear can be seen on the chewing surface of the teeth due to clenching, which is called abrasion. Another condition clenching may cause chipping of the thin enamel presents close to the gums. This is known as attrition. Attrition can also occur as a result of too hard brushing.

In cases where teeth are deformed, dental filling treatment can be applied to idealise the aesthetic function. The upper side incisors are most commonly deformed and this condition is mostly genetic. Febrile diseases in childhood, misuse of medication, traumas and dental infections can cause shape and colour disorders in permanent teeth. This kind of tooth with structural defects usually has a yellow-brown colour. Sometimes there may be cavities on the teeth in the form of dots or larger cavities. The enamel is very weak and has the potential for decay and fracture. Dental filling treatment can be applied both to increase the strength of the tooth and to improve its aesthetics.


What are dental fillings?

It is the removal of decayed or damaged tissue in the tooth and replacing it with a biocompatible filling material. This treatment prevents the progression of caries. Thus, dental health is protected without the need for treatments such as root canal treatment, dental crowns or tooth extraction.


Dental Filling


Types of dental fillings

Composite fillings are mostly preferred in treatments currently. It is generally known as white filling. Composite fillings are durable and aesthetic because they are tooth-coloured. Another advantage of composite fillings are that they are chemically bonded to the tooth surface and provides high retention. Thus, unlike amalgam fillings, it provides less loss of healthy tooth tissue.

Amalgam fillings were frequently preferred for many years before composite fillings. They are very strong. Since they are held by mechanical connection, it is often necessary to remove the healthy tooth surface together with the decay during application. It is not preferred today. It is not aesthetic because its colour is black. Although studies on the mercury content and risks of amalgam fillings have not been completed, it may cause health concerns.

Ceramic fillings are very aesthetic. It has the highest durability compared to other filling materials. It needs two visits to be made. After cleaning the decay, the dentist takes a tooth impression and creates a request for the filling to be produced in the laboratory. In the second visit, the treatment is completed by applying it to the patient's mouth. It is more costly than other treatment methods.

Temporary fillings, as the name suggests, are fillings that cannot stay in the mouth for a long time. They are flimsy, easily worn and cracked. They are generally used in the process of root canal treatments that require several visits, during the production stage of inlay & onlay fillings, after emergency intervention to painful patients, or when a permanent filling cannot be made in a single session. It should be used within the period recommended by the dentist. It is a temporary solution, the dentist should be visited to complete the treatment.


Are dental fillings safe?

New fillings may fall out if they are not made in accordance with the procedure. In addition, traumas caused by impact or traumas caused by chewing such as biting hard objects can cause fillings to fall out. In these cases, the dentist should be visited immediately.

Chewing, grinding and clenching of teeth may cause the filling to wear and crack. Generally, patients may not realise that their fillings are worn and cracked. Therefore, regular visits to the dentist are recommended.

Composite fillings may become coloured over time due to reasons such as water absorption and consumption of colouring foods. Especially the colouring of the fillings in the anterior region may cause aesthetic concerns. In such cases, the filling is polished or renewed.

It is normal to have sensitivity for a while after filling, but if the sensitivity lasts too long, it signifies the presence of an unfavourable situation. If the sensitivity lasts longer than 3-4 weeks, do not neglect to visit the dentist.

If the sensitivity of the filled tooth is very severe or the pain continues, root canal treatment may be required. If it is not treated, the tooth may need to be extracted.

If the filling is not done in an appropriate way or if it is broken at the edge, bacteria can leak between the tooth and the filling. In this case, the tooth continues to decay under the filling. It is very difficult to diagnose with the naked eye, but dentists can recognise it from the X-ray image. Therefore, the dentist should be visited regularly. If you feel pain in your previous filling, you should consult a dentist. In case of bacterial leakage, the filling should be renewed. In cases where the decay is very advanced, canal treatment or tooth extraction may be required.

If the filling is too large, it may be prone to fracture because the tooth tissue surrounding the filling is thin. In such cases, the tooth is usually broken, not the filling material. If there is a lot of material loss in the tooth due to fracture, the tooth may not be restored and needs to be extracted. For this reason, it is important to avoid biting very hard objects in the areas with large fillings. If your dentist recommends veneer treatment for the relevant tooth, it should be considered.

Dental Fillings Aftercare

There are some points to be considered for ideal healing after dental fillings;

  • Do not eat anything until the numbness in the lips, cheeks and tongue disappears after local anaesthesia. The numbness usually lasts for 2 hours depending on the intensity of the anaesthesia. Thus, accidental biting of the soft tissue is avoided and the partial durability of the filling increases.
  • It is usual to feel sensitivity after filling. Within a few weeks, the sensitivity decreases and disappears completely. If sensitivity has not disappeared after 3-4 weeks, you should consult a dentist.
  • If the sensitivity remains, your dentist will apply desensitisation treatments. If the sensitivity is very severe or spontaneous pain occurs, root canal treatment may be required.
  • If pain is felt when biting, it is probably caused by the height of the filling. You should contact your dentist.
  • In order for your filling to be long-lasting, brushing and flossing should not be skipped. Regular visits to the dentist to have your fillings checked should not be neglected.

After the decayed or damaged tissue has been completely removed, the dentist performs some procedures to make the surface free of bacteria and suitable for adhesion. At this point, it is important that saliva or any foreign particles do not come into contact with the cavity. Your dentist can use dental cotton roll or rubberdam for isolation. The dentist may use additional protective material if the decay is too close to the living tissue of the tooth that is called the pulp. The tooth is dried and the bonding agent is applied. Then composite filling material is placed layer by layer.

Melissa N. 01.03.2023
I wanted the smile makeover. I researched and contacted this firm. I had an online consultation with the dentist in Turkey. She convinced me that if we improve the alignment of my teeth, I will have an aesthetic appearance with laminate veneer without much damage to my teeth. She said that we could start clear aligner treatment first, but she said that the issue would be more clear in the clinical environment. The process progressed as we discussed at the beginning. It took some time, but I have both aesthetic and healthy teeth.
Jacob C. 04.06.2023
I have my wedding next month and I want everything to be perfect. I was not happy with the shape and colour of my teeth. I had some friends who had their teeth done in Turkey. I quickly searched the internet and met this team. They accompanied me throughout my entire treatment. I am very pleased with the clinic they recommended to me. I would like to thank my dentists and their team for giving me this beautiful smile before my wedding.
Georgiana B. 15.04.2023
I wished to reward myself and decided to have laminate veneers on my teeth. While searching on the internet, I realised that it was cheaper in Turkey. As a result, I contacted the company. They guided me and i went to Istanbul. Doctor Ege examined me and said that laminate veneers were not suitable. Because I was clenching my teeth too hard and the laminate veneer could be broken. He offered an alternative that we can achieve aesthetics with zirconium crowns, although not as much as laminate. I accepted but I had concerns. When my treatment was completed, I realised that my worries were unnecessary because it felt good. I liked that he warned me and gave up laminate.
Yusra B. 25.11.2022
I have a friend who has had teeth done in Turkey and is very naturalistic. I wanted teeth that were not noticeable by others, but I had mobility in my front teeth. I was very afraid of losing my teeth. When I sent my X-rays and photos, they said that there was nothing to be afraid of and that gum treatment would be done before the crown. When I first came to the clinic, the doctor and staff made me feel very comfortable. First, my gum treatment was done and it was expected to heal for 5 days. Afterwards, they made my teeth cut and took their measurements. After a very short time, I had teeth that were not noticeable from others, just as I wanted. When I looked at the mirror they gave me after they bonded my teeth, I couldn't stop myself from being surprised at how it could be so much natural. A team that understands your wishes and supports you from beginning to end.
Maciej M. 02.07.2023
I had heard that dental treatments were cheap in Turkey. I was concerned about the situation of some of my teeth. I did some research and met with various dentists. In general, they offered to make veneers on my 10 teeth to make my smile aesthetic. I also contacted Belal from this agency and he contacted me with prosthesis specialist Ege. Ege said that he thought I could have an aesthetic smile with fewer veneers. I wanted my teeth to look as natural as possible, so it built trust. I had planned a long holiday, I had a plan just in case. At first, I went to Ege's clinic, I was examined and we decided to make laminate veneers only on my 2 teeth that were worn out. So it was even less costly. My treatment was over before we could even discover Istanbul. I continued my holiday with my new teeth.
Samantha K. 12.04.2023
I could not laugh in front of my friends, I was constantly covering my mouth with my hand. I was very bored with this situation and I wanted to take action anyway. I found this place in my research on the internet and I contacted very quickly. When I told my story, they listened to me calmly and explained the solution very quickly and clearly. I liked this situation very much and we took the necessary actions without wasting any time. When I came to the clinic, they said that I had bone loss in some parts of my jaw, but that they would solve it with the most appropriate method. I reported that I could not sit on the couch for a long time and the doctor really acted very quickly and placed 4 implants on top and 2 implants on the bottom in almost 2 hours. We made an appointment for 3 months later and I had no problems with my temprorary teeth until then. When I came to the second time, they make my teeth without any trouble, I am very happy now and I can laugh as I want.
Ergunnes 01.10.2023
The dental crowns that I had done before harmed my gums and got a bad appearance. I wanted to change it, I reached this company by searching the internet. We had an online meeting and the dentist listened to me. The treatment plan they offered me seemed appropriate. We arranged my travel and accommodation with the company representative. They picked me up from the airport and took me to my hotel. Everything went very well. I rested for a day and then went to the clinic for my appointment. I had an x-ray and was examined. Doctor Ege created a new plan almost similar to the treatment plan they had made in our previous meeting. Istanbul was very fun, and my treatment was completed as I wanted.
Hazal D. 12.08.2023
I was not satisfied with my crowns that I had used before and I thought that they should be changed and I should use more natural crowns. I started to do research on the internet. When I found this place, they said that my gums might have problems and that's why my pain might be because of this. When I came to the clinic, we learnt that I had inflammation in my gums. Gum treatment was started quickly. first they made a proving and although it was a trial, it was very nice. After my recovery was complete, I went again and they took my impression. I had even more beautiful teeth than in the trial.
Pauline G. 25.10.2022
During our planned holiday in Turkey, I learnt that the dental service prices here are affordable. I met Mr. Bilal from the research I did on the internet. With his interest and quick guidance, we made an appointment to the dental clinic. I had a very fast and painless treatment process. At the end of the day, my veneer was natural and real like as I wanted.

I was sure that my teeth would look different, so I thought I would feel better. I contacted with the recommendation of a friend. We met online, dentist Ege said that my smile was very aesthetic. At first I didn't understand why he did this, I thought it would be better to research other places, but during the conversation I realised that he cared about natural teeth. He also understood my concerns, I decided to be treated. Turkey is already a country where I have visited a lot, I like to spend summers in Antalya. I prepared my trip and set off for Istanbul. We completed my treatment in a short time, I am very satisfied.
