When a tooth needs to have a filling due to a cavity or small fracture, we primarily use tooth colored composite resin.
The resin is bonded to the remaining tooth structure, saving the tooth from further damage. It comes in many shades to ensure a good color match to the existing tooth.
In some cases, dental amalgam (silver filling material) is used.
