DENTAL FILLINGS

This traditional procedure can be included in the category of cosmetic dentistry when porcelain and composite resin materials are used to provide a tooth-like appearance versus a silver amalgam filling material.

Fillings are done when decay is present in a tooth. The decayed area of the tooth is cleaned out, and the resulting area is filled with a white, resin composite material. Resin composite restorations are not only beautifully esthetic but strong and durable also.
