The treatment of cavities is a standard dental procedure. Your dentist will remove the decayed portion of the tooth and then “fill” the area on the tooth where the decayed material once existed.
Fillings are also used to repair cracked or broken teeth.
There are numerous dental filling materials available today. Cavities and repairs can be made using gold, porcelain, silver amalgam, tooth-coloured plastic and even glass!
The location and severity of the decay, cost of filling material and the dentist’s professional recommendation assist in determining the filling that will best address your needs.
Each material has its own advantages and disadvantages in terms of strength, durability, aesthetics and of course, cost.
