Fillings are done to remove decay, and replace the affected tooth structure. It is called a filling since brand-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 lead to tooth discomfort and/or infection, and the tooth would need 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 provide both kinds of fillings, however find that a number of their patients like the composite fillings.
The term composite refers to the actual filling material which is a mixture of glass or quartz filler in a resin medium.
Composite fillings offer great resilience and resistance to fracture in small-to-mid size restorations that have to stand up to moderate chewing pressure. Less tooth structure is eliminated when the dentist prepares the tooth, and this may lead to a smaller filling than with of an amalgam.
In addition, composites are "bonded", or adhesively connected, to the tooth, typically allowing a more conservative repair for the tooth. Composite fillings require that the tooth be kept clean and dry during the entire filling process and they undergo stain and staining 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 commonly utilized to repair front teeth that have cracked or worn. Where possible, esthetic bonding of composite material to front teeth is normally much cheaper than veneers or crowns. However, bonding usually does not last as long as veneers or crowns.
