Fillings are used to restore teeth. Fillings range in size depending on how many surfaces the decay is covering. The decay is removed from the tooth, and the cavity is cleaned of bacteria. The dentist will then place the filling material in this area to make the tooth strong. Filling material ranges from composite resin, silver amalgam, porcelain, etc. A filling may also be placed following a root canal.
