When is a plastic solution sufficient?
It’s all about choosing the right option
Your teeth have to handle approximately 3,000 heavy points of pressure every day. So it matters what materials and procedures your dentist chooses when a tooth needs to be repaired.
Plastic is perfect for many things
Strong, modern plastic materials are very suitable if the load isn’t too big, e.g. for building broken corners, spaces, and cavities on the front and back of the teeth.
Plastic is financially advantageous, but for chewing surfaces durability is much shorter than with a fixed inlay or a crown, and the money saved by this repair work may very soon be eaten up by subsequent repairs.
