The seal is a special filler for tooth restoration in case of damage (infection or mechanical).
What is rot or decay?
Cavities or decay is a process of destruction of minerals, which are part of the tooth, followed by the destruction of the tooth, resulting in poor and sporadic oral hygiene
Diagnosis and treatment
Determine the decay is not as difficult even for the most patient. It changes the color of tooth enamel and the formation of cavities, but to determine with certainty the diagnosis and appropriate treatment may need X-rays.
To date, most of the oldest methods of filling a tooth cavity. In practice, the use of about 150 years. Amalgams contain 45-50% zinc and silver, tin and metal alloys, including copper.
Composite fillings are a mixture of glass or quartz filler in a resin medium that produces a tooth-colored filling. They are sometimes referred to as composites or filled resins. Composite fillings provide good durability and resistance to fracture in small-to-mid size restorations that need to withstand moderate chewing pressure. Less tooth structure is removed when the dentist prepares the tooth, and this may result in a smaller filling than that of an amalgam. Composites can also be “bonded” or adhesively held in a cavity, often allowing the dentist to make a more conservative repair to the tooth.
The cost is moderate and depends on the size of the filling and the technique used by the dentist to place it in the prepared tooth. It generally takes longer to place a composite filling than what is required for an amalgam filling. Composite fillings require a cavity that can be kept clean and dry during filling and they are subject to stain and discoloration over time.
Porcelain fillings (tab / pad)
The tab is used only if the flawed chewing surface of the tooth
Cover applies if the decay is also affected by the lateral surface of the tooth.
Porcelain fillings are used in a large loss of dental material, requiring the establishment of a sealant to better maintain a healthy tooth. Porcelain fillings or inlays look more aesthetic and functional than amalgam fillings. Porcelain fillings (inlays and overlays) are manufactured in a laboratory and are distinguished by their aesthetics and durability.
