A dental filling is a type of restorative dentistry treatment used to repair minimal tooth fractures, tooth decay or otherwise damaged surfaces of the teeth. Dental filling materials, which include composite, porcelain and silver amalgam, may be used to even out tooth surfaces for better biting or chewing. Tooth-coloured restorations which are indistinguishable in appearance have revolutionized the dental technique, enabling patients to amend oral conditions yet still maintain a stunning white smile.
The dentist will examine suspected teeth and take an X-ray to determine the extent and exact location of the cavity and decay. Once it is determined that a filling is needed, the dentist will advise the options for filling and sealing the cavity to prevent further decay and damage to the tooth. Based on the medical history, location of the cavity, aesthetic needs, biting force, durability, cost, number of visits necessary and your preference, the dentist will decide which filling option is your best option.
