For many decades, amalgam was considered a proven filling material for tooth damage. However, amalgam has a high proportion of mercury and is therefore toxic to the human body and is considered harmful to health (e.g., it can cause an amalgam tattoo on the gums; in combination with other metals in the mouth, mutual negative influence can lead to gradual destruction and discoloration of fillings and crowns).


In the foreground of my interest is the gentle removal of caries, also known as minimally invasive, which depends on the extent of the defect.


Nowadays, among other things, high-quality dental fillings materials are made of soft materials (composite), which, after the caries has been removed, are brought into their final form in the prepared cavity and then cured with the polymerisation lamp.

Composite fillings are the method of choice for small defects in the tooth substance.


The true-to-nature colour of the fillings and the very good processing options allow the filling to be optimally matched to the tooth.

The anatomical modelling and a design without marginal gaps are important prerequisites for the high quality of a good composite tooth filling; the result is inconspicuous, fairly permanent tooth fillings; an inexpensive and quick solution for small caries defects in the front and side teeth.


Large cavities and defects in the chewing area of the molars are much better and much more permanently treated with ceramic-fillings (inlays / onlays). The higher financial investment is worth it.
