A dental filling is the restoration of the cavity that appears after cleaning all the decays and residues in a decaying tooth, in accordance with the normal form of that tooth, with a proven material that can stay in the mouth for a long time without causing any problems. Although there are a wide variety of fillings, the most frequently and successfully applied fillings today are:

They are amalgam fillings and ray fillings. Amalgam fillings are gray colored fillings that have been used for more than 100 years by developing their content.
Because of their color and mercury content, they are not considered very warmly.

However, they are also the most used filling materials.
The reason for this is that mercury poisoning has not been scientifically proven due to its robustness, economy and (even though it has been talked about and researched for so many years) due to the mercury in its structure…

In the other frequently used filling material, beam filling, a special light-sensitive material selected in accordance with the color of the tooth is filled into the cavity and hardened by irradiating it. Although its superiority over amalgam filling is accepted at first glance, successful results are obtained when it is applied correctly according to the position and condition of the tooth to be applied.

The choice of the right material for the filling to be made should be determined by the physician, taking into account the patient’s request. Below are the phases of the restoration work with beamed filling applied to our 14-year-old patient who came to our clinic with a fractured anterior tooth as a result of an accident.
