Fillings are used to restore missing tooth structure back to its previous shape and function. They are placed in teeth that have cavities (decay), fractures, or to replace previous, old fillings that are not sealed anymore. A filling closes the space where bacteria can enter and cause further decay. If the part of the tooth to be replaced is so large that a filling is not enough to restore it, a crown is necessary. Various filling materials are gold, porcelain, tooth coloured composite resin and amalgam (silver).
