A filling is a dental procedure in which the decayed tooth portion is replaced by a material such as silver amalgam or a composite (white) filling. This procedure removes the present decay and prevents its further spread and repairs any damage to the tooth due to the decay. Timely caries detection and filling of the cavity results in decreased need for root canal treatment and tooth extraction.
With the advent of cosmetic dental fillings, traditional filling materials like silver amalgam are no longer desirable to use.
