A dental filling is a type of restorative dentistry treatment used to cure minimal tooth fractures, tooth decay or otherwise damaged surfaces of the teeth. Filling materials, which include composite, porcelain and silver amalgam, may be used to polish the tooth surfaces for better biting or chewing. Depending on the extent of tooth decay or damage, the affected tooth may require additional procedures like:
- Dental Crowns
- Dental Implants and Dental Bridges.
- Root Canals
