Dental fillings are a common method of repairing and restoring teeth back to their normal shape and function after damage from cavities, cracks, grinding and fractures. There are several different types of filling materials, however, composite tooth- colored fillings are the most popular filling.
Composite are a very popular choice of
material because their color can be matched to your natural tooth color. Composite
fillings can “bond” to the tooth which other filling materials cannot
Amalgam (Silver) fillings are also available. Amalgam fillings are strong, long-lasting fillings and sometimes in very rare situations they need to be used instead of composite fillings
