In modern dentistry, filling material – whether composite (plastic) or ceramic; and whether in the case of a filling, crown or veneer – is usually bonded adhesively.
This means that a wafer-thin plastic layer acts as an adhesive. The durability far exceeds that of earlier cementation techniques, and the adhesive technique is also completely harmless in terms of biocompatibility.
And last but not least, the adhesive method meets our guiding principle of ‘tooth preservation over tooth replacement’. Conventional methods of affixing dentures often require grinding down healthy tooth substance. Adhesively-bonded filling material, on the other hand, requires only that the tooth surface be slightly roughened so that the resin adheres. This allows you to replace lost tooth substance gently, efficiently and sustainably.
