Dental Fillings

Dental Fillings

Dental fillings are used to close off spaces and gaps in your teeth in order to prevent decay from bacteria. Several materials are used for dental fillings, such as gold, porcelain, silver amalgam and tooth-colored plastic. Dental fillings are most commonly used to treat cavities but they’re also appropriate for repairing broken or damaged teeth to help restore their normal functions.

Dental filling involves placing a soft or malleable filling into the prepared tooth and building up the tooth. The material is then set hard and the tooth is restored. The advantage of direct restorations is that they usually set quickly and can be placed in a single procedure.
