Teeth that have been affected by tooth decay (caries or cavities) require fillings. There are many types of fillings, mostly used are:

1- Composite resins fillings, which matches the tooth color. They are chemically bonded to the cavity hence require less tooth preparation and they can be repaired when broken.

2- Amalgam fillings (silver in colour), which are easy to use and highly resistant to wear. They are also useful in areas where a cavity preparation is difficult to keep dry during the filling placement, such as in deep fillings below the gum line.
