DETERMINATION OF THE FILLING ACCORDING TO THE TOOTH
Filling type may not be same for everybody. Determinant factors such as size of the caries, allergy state against filling material, filling site and cost are important for accurate filling type.
The materials used for filling include gold, porcelain, composite, resin (a tooth-coloured filling) and amalgam. Mercury, copper, tin and zinc alloy may be used in some cases. Durable filling at tooth colour may be performed today.
This is the filling prepared for the teeth with much substance loss in the laboratory according to the measurements of the remaining tooth tissue. This method is developed in the protective dentistry to protect current tissues of the tooth.
