Fillings are a permanent restoration, designed to return a tooth to its correct shape and function, as well as helping to improve general aesthetics after loss of tooth structure due to decay.. Fillings are also essential for closing off spaces such as wide fissures, in order to prevent bacteria from entering an area and subsequently leading to decay
By removing the decay and filling the tooth, your dentist can prevent further damage occurring and restore your tooth to its natural form and function, thus minimising the risk of future problems.
In modern dentistry fillings are usually made from composite material, however they can also be made from amalgam or GIC (Glass ionomer cement).
