Restorations and Fillings

Restorations & Fillings

Restorative dentistry allows us to repair and preserve our natural dentition.

From a composition stand point teeth are the hardest material in our bodies.   However, they also bear the most trauma and forces during function when considering the strength of the muscles of mastication. No other part of our bodies receives as much continuous activity, and our mouth are exposed to far more foreign bodies (food, bacteria, inanimate objects, etc).  Considering this, it is inevitable that over time our teeth will break down and need attention. Restoring teeth with tooth colored fillings are the most conservative way to maintain one’s natural dentition.
