Dental fillings are used to restore worn, damaged teeth and to treat tooth decay.
A drill is used to remove the decay and the hole is then cleaned and dried and sealed with dental filling material. Now a day the filling material used is composite material, which is tooth coloured material.
Another filling material used is called dental amalgam, silver fillings. At North Ryde Dental Practice this is only used in rare cases where the white filling material might not be suitable due to strength. This might be for a back tooth that requires stronger material due to heavy wear.
