Tooth Restoration – What You Need to Know

강남임플란트 Tooth restoration involves restoring teeth to their natural function and form. This can be achieved with composite resins that are durable, fracture resistant and blend into the tooth unit.


Although restoration refurbishment or repair can be considered a ‘patching’ procedure, it should always be preceded by a more definitive treatment. The decision to repair rather than replace should be based on the caries risk of the tooth and the prognosis of the repaired restoration and the restored tooth unit.

Direct Restoration

Practicing good oral hygiene, visiting the dentist for regular checkups and cleaning, and following their advice on how to avoid certain conditions are the best ways for people to reduce the need for tooth restoration procedures. But, when a dental problem arises, there are several types of restorations that can be used to remedy it. One of the most common is direct restoration.

This is a type of dental restoration that allows the dentist to restore damaged teeth with a material directly inserted into the cavity. The procedure is commonly known as a “filling”, and it’s most often made from silver amalgam or composite resin.

The main benefit of this type of restoration is that it’s quick and relatively inexpensive. It also doesn’t require the use of a dental lab, and the whole procedure can be completed within a single visit to the dentist.

However, the longevity of this type of 강남임플란트 restoration is largely dependent on how well the patient takes care of it. Failure to follow proper brushing and flossing techniques can lead to problems with these restorations, such as decay or discoloration.

Direct restorations are also less likely to cause additional damage to the tooth than indirect ones, which may require a more extensive dental treatment to repair.

Indirect Restorations

Indirect restorations are more complex than direct ones, and they involve fabricating the restoration outside of the mouth. Examples include crowns, bridges, veneers and inlays/onlays. They are also typically fabricated from different dental materials than direct ones, which means they offer extra protection to the tooth and can handle the force of chewing for longer periods before needing replacement or repair.

The biggest disadvantage of indirect restorations is that they can be more costly than direct ones, especially when a person’s needs are more complicated. However, they can also be much more durable than direct restorations.

A recent study found that a hybrid system with silorane and oxirane monomers, which have low polymerization shrinkage stress, improved the clinical performance of indirect composite restorations when compared to traditional methacrylate resin. This is because it reduced the amount of composite being placed, while maintaining an acceptable level of clinical performance.

Both indirect and direct restorations are effective in the repair of teeth that have been damaged or decayed. To determine which type of restoration is right for you, it’s best to have a dentist inspect the tooth and make a suggestion. If you are concerned about tooth decay, it’s important to book an appointment with a dentist as soon as possible to avoid complications that can result in extensive dental work.
