Dental Fillings in Medellin

Tooth decay is the destruction of your tooth enamel, the hard, outer layer of your teeth. It can be a problem for children, teens and adults.
Plaque, a sticky film of bacteria, constantly forms on your teeth.
When you eat or drink foods containing sugars, the bacteria in plaque produce acids that attack tooth enamel.
The stickiness of the plaque keeps these acids in contact with your teeth and over time the enamel can break down.
This is when cavities can form. A cavity is a little hole in your tooth.
Unless the hole is too large, the natural look and functionality of the tooth can be saved by filling the cavity with metal or composite material.
Composite Dental Fillings
Composite resins, or tooth-colored fillings, provide good durability and resistance to fracture in small- to mid-size fillings that need to withstand moderate pressure from the constant stress of chewing.
When we talk of adhesive dental procedures, in most cases we re refering to composite dental fillings, which are bonded to the tooth structure.
They can be used on either front or back teeth.
They are a good choice for people who prefer that their fillings look more natural.
Composites cost more than amalgam and occasionally are not covered by some insurance plans. Also, no dental filling lasts forever.
Some studies show that composite fillings can be less durable and need to be replaced more often than amalgam fillings.
These type of fillings are made of porcelainin a laboratory using impressions taken from your mouth.
Ceramic fillings are durable while yielding excellent aesthetic results .
Ceramic fillings are more expensive than other types, but they’re tooth-colored and more resistant to staining and abrasion than composite resin.
The disadvantage of using ceramic instead of composite fillings is that the latter are more brittle so in order to prevent them from breaking they must be made larger and thicker.
This means the area in the tooth must be made larger so the filling can be thicker.
These ceramic restorations are typically referred to as inlays or onlays.
