Dental fillings are treatments used to restore the function and integrity of a tooth after it has been damaged by a cavity or other external trauma.
To treat a cavity the dentist removes the decayed portion of the tooth and the hole that was created is filled in with filling material. Fillings are either white (composite) or silver (amalgam) and patients always have a choice on which type of filling they prefer.
The dentist may offer recommendations as to the best filling type for each situation. Fillings may also be placed to repair a crack or a missing portion of tooth.
