Restorative dental materials fulfill an important role in the way dentistry is deliverd today.

Dental restorative materials are specially fabricated materials, designed for use as dental restorations (fillings), which are used to restore tooth structure loss, usually resulting from dental caries (dental cavities) or tooth fractures. There are many challenges for the physical properties of the ideal dental restorative material. The goal of research and development is to develop the ideal restorative material. The ideal restorative material would be identical to natural tooth structure, in strength adherence and appearance. The properties of an ideal filling material can be divided into three categories:

Physical properties, Biocompatibility and Aesthetics.

Physical: resistance to different categories of forces and wear like attrition and abrasion and resistance to chemical erosion. There must also be good bonding strength to the tooth. Everyday masticatory forces and conditions must be withstood without fatiguing.

Biocompatibility: refers to how well the material coexists with the biological equilibrium of the tooth and body systems. Since fillings are in close contact with mucosa, tooth, and pulp, biocompatibility is very important. Common problems with some of the current dental materials include chemical leakage from the material, pulpal irritation and less commonly allergy. The materials used in our clinic are a work of rigorous rasearch &development making them biologically&functionally acceptable .

Aesthetic: Filling materials ideally would match the surrounding tooth structure in shade, translucency, and texture.
