What If The Front Tooth Is Broken Right Away In The Patch At The Dental Artisan Not At The Dentist?
So I broke my upper front tooth 3. I was immediately taken to the doctor, but because there was no cost and because of the long neurological treatment … Finally it was brought to the dentist directly patched and given a light. How will it happen with my teeth going forward. At this time the connection began to turn black. Thank you
Hello Ahmad M Huda,
Tooth fillings or teeth filling are used to improve the shape of cavities or broken teeth. In addition to cosmetic purposes, dental fillings are also useful so that the function of teeth for chewing and speech articulation remains good. There are various types of dental fillings including:
Amalgam (silver), this material is widely used for patching materials in the past because the price is cheap and durable. However, it is rarely used now because the color is not the same as the color of teeth, can turn into black, and controversy containing mercury.
Gold, this type of patch is very strong, can last a long time and does not undergo corrosion. Some patients prefer the appearance of gold teeth rather than silver. The price is much more expensive than amalgam fillings.
Composite / resin, has a color similar to normal teeth, is more expensive than amalgam, durability is not as strong as amalgam and gold, can experience discoloration also becomes more yellow
Ceramics, stronger than composite fillings, the same color as teeth, are not as susceptible to discoloration as composites, are more expensive than composite fillings, but their durability is not as good as composites (easily broken)
Glass ionomers have poor durability, generally used in the case of children or to fill the lower teeth
To fix a patch you can come for a checkup at the dentist. At the dentist you can consult to determine the appropriate tooth restoration measures. Fractures on the front of the teeth can be treated with various methods of dental restoration in addition to filling / fillings, for example by dental veneers, dental crowns, or dental extractions which are then replaced with dentures or dental implants.
Discuss with your dentist and please adjust to the needs and costs you have. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
