Researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago School of Dentistry said that when the teeth are broken, the enamel is damaged, revealing the underlying dentin. At this point, it is possible to prevent further development by damaging the teeth. At present, many people choose to use their composite resin with the same color to fill their teeth. But the life of this material is only 5 to 7 years.

The researchers published an article saying that dentin is mainly composed of collagen. When it is damaged, it can be self-healed with the aid of oligomeric proanthocyanidins. This substance is widely found in vegetables and grape seed extracts. In other words, grape seed extract can make the dentin stronger, which allows it to better combine with the filling material to extend the life of the filled teeth.
