Fillings and Restorations

When a tooth develops a cavity, it is very important to remove any decay and bacteria that has developed on or within the tooth. Once the decay is removed, the tooth has a hole, or a “cavity” that needs to be filled.

There are two common kinds of fillings that are used.
Amalgam, also known as metal fillings, are highly durable but not aesthetically pleasing. Metal fillings are very indiscreet and quite apparent when you smile
Nowadays, composite fillings (also known as “resin fillings”) are much more common because they match the color of your teeth. Although not as durable as amalgam, they are still functional and can last a lifetime if properly cared for.

Generally speaking, any procedure that returns a damaged or decayed tooth back to healthy condition is called a restoration. This includes procedures that correct chips, cracks, fractures, breakages, and/or cavities. All of these procedures may involve applying the appropriate filling, and then shaping the tooth so that it is functional and aesthetically pleasing.
