What is Porcelain Filling?
There are generally two different approaches and application methods in the treatment of aesthetic porcelain filling. The first is classical filling and the second is aesthetic porcelain filling. In other words, these fillings are also called “Direct Restoration” fillings. The second method, which we prefer clinically, is aesthetic porcelain fillings. This method, unlike the classical application, is not put directly into the patient’s mouth and requires a preparatory step. With this feature, porcelain applications are characterized as indirect applications.

How is Aesthetic Porcelain Filling Treatment Performed?
First of all, the patient’s intraoral measurements are taken; tomography is taken and a 3D image is taken and transferred to the computer environment. The part to be added is prepared in the laboratory environment by observing the exact dimensions of the point that needs filling for the tooth, which is analyzed in 3D in the computer environment. In this way, the tooth to be seated on the tooth is aesthetically perfectly integrated into the integrity of the tooth.

Benefiting from technological measurements and techniques allows us to perform very successful operations in a clinical sense, and enables our patients to obtain very satisfactory results in terms of their aesthetic appearance and comfort. In this context, porcelain fillings prepared in digital environment reveal much more aesthetic and successful results than fillings applied with classical methods.

Why Aesthetic Porcelain Filling?
The reason why aesthetic porcelain fillings are given this name is that the raw material in the filling content is porcelain material. Porcelain fillings are much more durable thanks to their raw material content, and they have a protective feature that will last for many years. Compared to laser and composite fillings, its advantages provide superiority over all filling types.

The most commonly applied filling in our country is amalgam fillings, which is an old method. The most preferred reason for this type of filling, which has been used for many years, is its low cost in terms of economy. However, the mercury substance it contains creates a toxic effect on the human body over time.

Aesthetic porcelain fillings, on the other hand, do not pose any health threat in terms of health, and at the same time, unlike amalgam fillings, they present an aesthetic stance in terms of appearance. As it will make a positive contribution to smile aesthetics in terms of its color, it can also be subjected to whitening processes when necessary; the desired whiteness level can be reached. Porcelain fillings are called inlay, onlay and overlay according to their size.

Factors That Determine the Cost of Porcelain Fillings
Aesthetic porcelain filling treatment has a multi-process structure in terms of preparation and application processes. First, by transferring the measurements taken in our clinic to digital media, the tooth and the missing part of the tooth are analyzed in 3D in the laboratory environment; Then, the filling is prepared in the laboratory to fit the measurements. In this way, after a multi-process process, a filling is placed on the tooth in our clinic. This whole process, on the other hand, may become more costly due to the technical infrastructure and redundancy it requires. Another factor that determines the price range of aesthetic porcelain filling treatment is other additional treatments that may be required by the tooth to be operated.

In our clinic in Nişantaşı, we analyze all these factors and determine the order and number of procedures and price our patients for an aesthetic porcelain filling. Of course, the cost of treatment for our patients can be a determining factor in their choice; However, clinically, we prefer aesthetic porcelain filling as a method in terms of its results and aesthetic appearance.
