When a cavity (tooth decay) occurs to your tooth enamel, we will likely use a dental filling to repair the damage. Dental fillings are directly applied to the surface of your tooth to fill in the empty spaces left once we remove the decay.

Filling material are commonly one of two types of material: amalgam (silver) fillings and composite resin (white) fillings. Resin fillings are preferred for patients looking to maintain the aesthetic appearance of their smile as we can match any shade of tooth. Silver fillings are considered more cost effective and can easily be placed in posterior teeth.
