The dental filling is a common dental procedure indicated to restore damaged teeth by caries, restoring structure, morphology and aesthetic integrity. The dental filling is always preceded by the elimination of cariogenic process and an accurate and final disinfection of the area. Subsequently, we proceed through the use of a substance said composite to the restoration of the morphology of the tooth.
The composite is a substance with a color equal to that of the tooth (in fact is available in various shades) consists of a main structure in resin (methacrylate) and a “filler” in mineral crystals, which has a coefficient of hardness similar to that of teeth.
The proper procedure is to use a dam (thin sheet of latex) required to avoid contact of the composite with the saliva.
