Dental Fillings

Dental Restorations
Dental fillings are used to restore a tooth that has been damaged by decay to prevent further decay. Basically, the dentist removes the decay, cleans the affected area, and then fills the cavity with a dental filling material such as porcelain, composite (plastic) resin (tooth color), gold or amalgam (silver). The type of filling material depends on the extent of the damage to the tooth, the area, allergies and cost.
