Kuraray Noritake Dental Inc., a pioneer in high polymer chemistry technology, develops resins that are similar to the color of natural teeth as well as dental adhesives. For example, cavity filling material known as composite resin is produced by mixing a fine powder (filler) made of a special crushed glass. In order to achieve color and texture similar to natural teeth in dental restoration, research is being compiled regarding adjustments to the refraction index of filler and resin using unique technology.
