What is Restorative Dentistry?
The major role of dentistry is to restore lost, missing, decayed or deficient tooth structure. We can replace a missing tooth or teeth or even all the teeth if necessary.
Tooth structure is a complex biological material. It has been difficult to develop materials that restore teeth well. Gold and silver were the best we had until reliable "bonding" was developed. Bonding is a process that enables us to restore teeth with materials that stick to the tooth structure. Current bonding agents and composite filling materials are strong and esthetic.
