Nanotechnology means manipulating matter at the nanometer level and its application in medicine is known as nanomedicine. Nanotechnology’s most notable contribution to dentistry is the restoration of tooth structure with nanocomposites. These materials can offer esthetic and strength advantages over conventional microfilled and hybrid resin based composite systems in terms of smoothness, polishibility, precision of shade characterization, flexural strength and micro hardness. Operating on such a minute aspect provides a perspective to envision the restoration of tooth at a level that offers closer approximation of its individual anatomic structures. Currently laboratory dental research is exploring designs for restorative systems that approximate the very process by which dental enamel is formed.
