A filling is a way to restore a decay or damaged tooth back to its normal function and shape. When your dentist gives you a filling, they remove the decayed tooth material, clean the affected area, and then fill the cleaned-out cavity with a filling material. Fillings are made available from a variety of different materials. The type of filling your dentist uses will mostly depend on what will be best for your smile and teeth.
However, no dental filling or restoration material compares to porcelain and composite resin (tooth-colored fillings). Composite resins are matched to be the same color as your teeth. They are used on teeth that are visible for a more natural look. Composites are ideal for smaller fillings and can become stained just like natural teeth. Meanwhile, porcelain fillings are called inlays or onlays and are custom made in a lab and then bonded to the tooth.
