A dental filling is an excellent way to restore the proper shape and functioning of the tooth damaged due to tooth decay. This procedure is also known as cavity filling since the doctor cleans up the destroyed and decayed tooth material and fills the cavity with a suitable tooth substance.

Tooth filling also helps prevent future build up of bacteria by closing down the open sites through which harmful pathogens can enter the cavity and destroy the tooth. The material used for tooth cavity filling includes composite resin, porcelain, gold or amalgam, which is a combined alloy of zinc, copper, silver and tin.

Only a dentist can tell whether a person needs a tooth filling or not. In case of any doubts, the dentist may first check the surface of the teeth with the help of a mirror and then make use of special instruments to closely examine the damages areas of the dental cavity.

The tooth filling cost depends on the type of material being used and the number of tooth surfaces on which the filling material is to be placed. Composite fillings may cost a bit more than amalgam-based fillings.
