Whenever a tooth needs to be repaired due to decay, fractures, etc., a filling is used to repair or replace the affected part of the tooth. There are advantages to different types of filling material, such as composite or silver amalgam, that the dentist will discuss with you.

Composite fillings are closely matched to the color of the existing teeth, so they are used in more esthetic areas such as the front teeth.
