About Tooth Filling

A filling is a way to restore tooth damaged by decay. The decayed tooth material is removed, the affected area cleaned and the cleaned out cavity is then filled with a filling material. There are different types of filling materials used, such as amalgam, composite resin and porcelain. Your dentist will consider a number of factors when choosing which type of filling material is best for you.
