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 2 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, however find that a number of their clients 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 excellent sturdiness and resistance to fracture in small-to-mid size restorations that have to withstand moderate chewing pressure. Less tooth structure is eliminated when the dentist prepares the tooth, and this may 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 staining with time. The life span of a white filling can depend greatly on where it is in your mouth and how heavily your teeth come together when you bite.
Composite filling material is also typically utilized to fix front teeth that have broken or worn. Where possible, esthetic bonding of composite material to front teeth is typically much more economical than veneers or crowns. However, bonding typically does not last as long as veneers or crowns.
