It is often the process of restoration of tooth tissue loss due to trauma or corrosion that is mostly linked to tooth decay.
The dental fillings vary according to the filling material.
The most commonly used filling material today is the composite filling which is compatible with the tooth colour and is the most aesthetic, current filling material. Besides, amalgam fillings are still used in dentistry applications due to their robustness and durability.
Also, onlays and inlays, also known as porcelain fillers, are frequently preferred filling methods for their aesthetic look, durability and good compatibility with the tissues.
