What is a Dental Filling?
A filling does just what its name implies – it fills in a space in a tooth. A number of different materials can be used for a filling, including amalgam, composite resin, glass ionomer, porcelain, and gold. Fillings are used to treat cavities; they are necessary because, after the decay has been removed from the tooth, the tooth structure will need to be replaced to restore the strength and functionality to it.
