Most of us end up needing one or more fillings at some point. Fillings are a long-lasting restorative material used to fix tooth structure after damage due to things like decayed teeth or broken teeth. In the past, teeth were filled with cast gold fillings or an amalgam (a mix of metals such as silver, copper and mercury) which could be seen on the surface of the tooth. These days, a composite white filling is used most often. Not only does its natural look blend in with your teeth, but it can also be placed in a single visit.
