Dental fillings are used to restore cavities in a tooth, but they can also be used to repair cracked, worn or broken teeth.
They are used to treat decayed teeth and help restore the tooth’s shape and function.
There are several filling types: Amalgam, Composite or Glass Ionomer. Which material is used depends on several factors including the cavity size, the location on the tooth and the position of the tooth in the mouth. Your dentist will discuss what is suitable for the tooth. Should you wish to opt for a cosmetic filling, we will shade match the filling to your natural tooth.
