Dental Fillings

Dental Filling is also known as dental restoration where the function, integrity, and morphology of the missing tooth structure which may be caused by caries or external trauma is restored.

Dental fillings are differentiated into two types called ‘Direct Fillings’ and ‘Indirect Filling’. Cavities could be the reason for the requirement of dental filling. For ‘direct fillings’, soft and malleable fillings are prepared for the tooth and the tooth is built up. Whereas, in ‘indirect fillings’ restoration is fabricated outside the mouth by using the dental impression of the mouth.

Fillings could be of any type, it could be the precious metallic alloys or base metallic alloys or amalgams. Fillings would depend on the necessity, sensitivity and the requirement of the patient.
