Decay in tooth caused by caries; also referred to as carious lesion.
Material used under a filling to replace lost tooth structure.
A dental restorative material made up of disparate or separate parts (e.g. resin and quartz particles).
To fall off or shed; a name used for the primary teeth.

An intracoronal restoration; a dental restoration made outside of the oral cavity to correspond to the form of the prepared cavity, which is then luted into the tooth.
