A filling is used to restore the function and integrity of missing tooth structure. Fillings can be divided into two different types: direct and indirect. They can further be classified by their location and size. You get a filling when you have a small cavity. Restoring the tooth to good form requires two steps, preparing the tooth for placement and the actual placement of the materials. Materials used may be gold, amalgam, and dental composites, or porcelain.
