In accordance with the State of California's requirements, our office is providing you with a four-page fact sheet and a glossary of terms page. The materials compared are considered to be the most frequently used in dentistry by the State of California. The information supplied is considered by the State of California to be supported by relevant, credible dental research published mainly between 1993-2001.
We would like to point out that the materials are discussed in general categories, and in those categories, there are many specific products. We will gladly discuss the specific materials we use and why we choose those materials.
In general, of the three types of direct restorative dental materials, we use the composite resin in our office. Direct materials are those that we use for fillings or bonding when the treatment is started and finished in the same appointment. Indirect materials are those used when we do a treatment that is on one day and finished on another because we have lab work that must be done.
Your signature is needed below to acknowledge that we gave you these materials. Again, please ask any question you may have regarding the materials we will use for your treatment.
