Restorative procedures restore the optimum form and function of teeth structurally damaged by untreated dental decay, excessive wear and trauma.Restorations fall into two categories of Amalgam and tooth-colored Composite.
In the past, tooth problems like cavities or other trauma only had one viable treatment option: metal or amalgam fillings. Advances in the science of dentistry have led to the development of resin composite that, when bonded to your tooth, provide a durable filling with a much more natural appearance.
Composite restorations can typically be applied within a single appointment, and offer a viable alternative to metal fillings in many cases. However metal fillings are still used in certain special cases that are not suitable for composite fillings.
