What is a filling?


A filling is a material placed in a tooth to restore a decayed or fractured area.  The tooth is filled with either amalgam(silver) or composite resin (tooth colored/white) restoration.

Why do I need a filling?


There are several reasons why a tooth needs a filling.  If you have:

  • Decay (Cavity)

  • Cavity around an existing filling or crown

  • A lost filling

  • Chipped or broken tooth

  • Worn areas on your tooth that may or may not be sensitive.
