Fillings are used to fill small tooth holes or cavities. There are different types of fillings, but the most popular type is composite fillings. Composite fillings offer the ability to effectively deal with cavities while maintaining the cosmetic appeal of a bright, white smile.
After detecting a cavity, your dentist will remove the decayed tissue from your tooth and then fill the space with filling material. Filling materials include tooth-colored/composite fillings and silver/amalgam fillings.
