Preserve Your Smile With Tooth Fillings
For restoring a tooth, we use a couple different materials. We use clear resins for doing sealants, we use tooth-colored resins, or composites, for teeth that are more of an aesthetic thing. We used to also use a lot of what’s called ‘glass ionomer.’ It’s like a liquid when you mix it up and with a little consistency, tooth-colored, and what’s cool about that is you can put it in areas that aren’t an aesthetic concern areas, and it helps prevent decay because of the material that what it consists of. That’s, again, it depends on the situation and where it ends and to me, it’s not like a one-size-fits-all, you got to kind of use what works well in that area, gives you the best aesthetic results or the best cavity-resistant results.
