Dental Fillings are used by a dentist to “fill” space from a cavity after treatment. To treat a cavity, the dentist will drill around the damaged area of your tooth to remove all the decay. This area will then be “filled” with the dental filling material. Dental fillings use a material that mimics both the look and the strength of your existing teeth so everything will look natural when finished.
There are several types of fillings that your dentist may use in your treatment. The most common filling material is a composite filling that most closely matches the look of your teeth. The dentist will go over the different options before applying to ensure that the best option is chosen.
