What is a white restoration?
White restorations are made of a polymerizable (light-cured) resin that does not contain mercury. They are very aesthetic and allow almost invisible restorations, since a multitude of shades are available in order to imitate the color of the natural tooth. Their durability will always depend on several factors, such as the size of the restoration, the presence of bruxism, dietary habits, etc. It is important to note that time as well as food can alter the color of your restoration in the long term.
In addition, white restorations make it possible to be very conservative in terms of the tooth that needs to be prepared, eliminating unnecessary weakening of the tooth.
When working on a tooth, a slight sensitivity of short duration may appear following the appointment. If the tenderness does not go away, an adjustment of your bite may be necessary.
