Materials used in teeth repair
There are many different materials used when restoring a missing part of a tooth. Some of them are used for foundation, and these are used for different types of dental cement. Others are used for augmenting the outer layer of the tooth as well as for various composite materials, amalgams and, as the best solution, ceramic inlays.
Composite materials come in different shapes that mimic the natural color of teeth so, in the hands of an expert dentist, a tooth can look like nothing was done to it!
Glass-ionomer cements are also used for teeth for teeth repair.
