Composite plastic or ceramic is used to patch the tooth. If the gums are in good condition and the tooth does not require root canal treatment, the tooth can be fixed in one visit, regardless of the filling material.
When choosing patching material, the color of the spot, durability, possible biting stress and price are taken into account. Plastic can be used to make a beautiful place that blends in with the color of the tooth. When filling large holes or molars, ceramic is preferred, because plastic is not necessarily a sufficiently durable material due to chewing stress. Small places in the molar area can be made of plastic, but when planning larger places, you should evaluate the impact of bite stress when choosing the place material.
