Restorative Dentistry

Restorative dental treatment is the treatment of hard tissue loss in the tooth caused by caries or non-carious reasons. During the treatment of tooth tissue loss, special materials that we call filling are applied in accordance with the anatomy of the tooth instead of existing caries or tooth tissue loss.

Amalgam fillings, popularly known as black fillings in the old times of dentistry, are rarely used today or have been abandoned by many physicians. Today, amalgam fillings have been replaced by more aesthetic, natural and tooth-colored composite fillings. Composite fillings made in accordance with appropriate conditions and rules can remain in the mouth for many years if the patient pays attention to oral hygiene.

One of the most common questions asked by our patients is do I feel pain during filling? The answer to this is that in superficial dental caries, pain will not be felt even without anesthesia, and if the existing caries is deep, the restoration of the tooth can be completed with a composite filling without pain with a simple local anesthesia.

Caries detected in the early period can be easily treated with simple composite fillings without the need for further treatment. This shows us the benefits of regular dental check-ups.

One of the most frequently asked questions by our patients is the nutritional status immediately after filling. If anesthesia is not applied during the filling, there is no time restriction in the feeding of our patient immediately after the treatment.
