Restorative dentistry

Dental decay should be treated. If left untreated, decay will progress over time and ultimately destroy the structure of the affected teeth. Restorative dentistry deals with simpler tooth restorations that are usually carried out in one visit.

Thanks to advances in technology, modern composite materials for tooth fillings have been developed. Fillings made with this material allow for the removal of the smallest portion of the decaying tooth. The material is biocompatible with teeth, which allows it to bind chemically and release fluoride. Unlike the old, black amalgam fillings (which also contain mercury), these composite materials are highly aesthetic and are the natural color of teeth. Finally, thanks to nanotechnology, they can also be polished to high gloss.
