Dental fillings are a type of dental restoration used to repair a cavity or a damaged tooth. A filling is used to restore the function and shape of a tooth that has been damaged by decay, cracks, or other types of tooth damage. The filling material is placed into the cavity or damaged area of the tooth, filling the gap and preventing further damage. Fillings are typically needed when a tooth has developed a cavity, which is caused by bacteria that produce acid that attacks the tooth’s surface. This can lead to the formation of a hole in the tooth, also known as a cavity, that needs to be filled in order to prevent further damage. Aside from cavity fillings, they are also used to repair cracked or broken teeth or to fill in spaces between teeth that cause problems with biting or chewing.
The type of filling material used depends on the location and extent of the cavity, as well as the patient’s individual needs and preferences. Common types of filling materials include amalgam (silver), composite resin (tooth-colored), and porcelain. After thoroughly examining your teeth your Enhance dentist will determine the best type of filling material for you based on your needs and preferences.
