Fillings

Problem

Tooth decay that has led to the development of a cavity, or small hole, in the tooth.

Solution

Fillings. Your dentist will remove all areas of decay, and replace with a filling made of silver (amalgam) or composite resin. Composite resin fillings have surged in popularity because their appearance perfectly matches the natural appearance of teeth.

Alternatives

In cases of more extensive decay, full-coverage restorations are an advisable alternative.
