Fillings

Restorative Care (Fillings):

A filling is a way to restore a tooth damaged by decay back to its normal function and shape. When I give you a filling, I will first remove the decayed tooth material, clean the affected area, and then fill the cleaned out cavity with a filling material.

By closing off spaces where bacteria can enter, a filling also helps prevent further decay. Materials used for fillings include gold, porcelain, a composite resin (tooth-colored fillings), and an amalgam (an alloy of mercury, silver, copper, tin and sometimes zinc).

Fillings are classified by how many surfaces of the tooth they involve. Teeth have five surfaces- the chewing surface, cheek side, tongue side and the front and back sides where dental floss is used. The simplest filling is a one-surface filling and is used when a tooth has a cavity on the chewing surface. If the cavity is in between teeth, or extends to the cheek or tongue side of the tooth, a two or three surface filling may be required.
