A filling restores a hole in a tooth, or repairs a chipped tooth and returns it to its original shape.
There are multiple different filling materials available which have various properties. The traditional silver amalgam materials have been used for almost 150 years but new materials such as composites, which are tooth coloured and can bond to a tooth, have become much more popular in recent years.
Once the dentist has discovered a cavity, the decayed and weakened tooth is removed and restored with filling material. The treatment is usually under local anaesthetic to make the procedure comfortable and painless.
