Restorative dentistry is used to restore any damaged or missing teeth. Restorative dentistry aims to restore the normal form and function of teeth and supporting structures. Restorative dentistry procedures are multidimensional and range from simple procedures like tooth filling to complex procedures like restoring missing teeth and cavity teeth.
Composite or tooth-colored fillings
A dental composite material is a highly cross-linked polymeric material reinforced with amorphous, silica, glass, crystalline, and organic resin filler particles that match the color of the tooth exactly. Composite restorations have many advantages when compared with other dental fillings.
Glass Ionomer fillings are made from acrylic and fluoroaluminosilicate, a component of glass. This type of dental filling is strong and often used in people with decay that extends below the gum line. It merely coincides with the natural color of the tooth but still appears white in color. This tooth filling material is comparatively inexpensive. It is the best material when decay is present near the gum region of the tooth.
