What is restoration?
A filling is done to restore a damaged tooth and to prevent further decay. 3 types of filling materials may be used which include ceramic, composite resin (tooth-colored fillings), and an amalgam (an alloy of mercury, silver, copper, tin and sometimes zinc).
Post Treatment Instruction
