tooth-colored_fillings_1 | Dr. Jennifer Perkins, DDS

So, you have a cavity. You aren’t happy about it, but it’s not the worst thing that could happen. By acting quickly, you can remove the decay from your tooth and restore your oral health with a tooth filling.

What is a tooth filling?

Fillings are materials used to fill the cavity in a tooth that is created by tooth decay. Many different materials have been used to make fillings over the years including gold, mercury, and other metals. Modern fillings, however, often are made with a composite resin that matches the color of the affected tooth.

What is the purpose of a filling?

Modern fillings serve three purposes. First, they restore your ability to bite and/or chew without pain or sensitivity. Second, they offer protection against additional decay in your affected tooth. Third, modern fillings restore the appearance of your natural smile.
