Fillings are done to remove decay, and replace the affected tooth structure. It is called a filling due to the fact that new material fills the hole that the decay left. Now days most teeth are treated with bonded tooth colored composite resin fillings. Caught early enough, cavities can be treated easily and painlessly. If not treated, decay can result in tooth pain and/or infection, and the tooth would require a root canal treatment or extraction.
There are two kinds of fillings; amalgam or silver fillings, and composite or white fillings. Composite fillings are tooth-colored to blend in with the remaining natural part of the tooth. Most dentists offer both kinds of fillings, but find that a lot of their patients like the composite fillings.
The term composite refers to the actual filling material which is a mix of glass or quartz filler in a resin medium.
Composite fillings supply excellent toughness and resistance to fracture in small-to-mid size restorations that have to endure moderate chewing pressure. Less tooth structure is eliminated when the dental practitioner prepares the tooth, and this might result in a smaller sized filling than with of an amalgam.
In addition, composites are "bonded", or adhesively attached, to the tooth, often enabling a more conservative repair for the tooth. Composite fillings require that the tooth be kept clean and dry throughout the entire filling process and they undergo stain and discoloration with time. The life expectancy of a white filling can depend significantly on where it is in your mouth and how heavily your teeth come together when you bite.
Composite filling material is also frequently used to fix front teeth that have actually chipped or worn. Where possible, esthetic bonding of composite material to front teeth is typically much cheaper than veneers or crowns. However, bonding generally does not last as long as veneers or crowns.
