Dental restorations made from tooth-colored material, such as dental-grade ceramic or composite resin, are widely used to restore the teeth to their ideal contour, functionality, and aesthetics. Some of the prominent ones are veneers, crowns, bridges, inlays, onlays, fillings, etc. They offer certain excellent features that make them highly sought-after in the world of dentistry.
When you have a cavity-infected tooth, it would be wise to get it restored using suitable filling material. The dentist will remove the decay using an ultrasonic scaling device, after which a suitable filling will be prepared and applied to the cavity. The filling can be in the form of composite resin or a tooth-colored ceramic.
