A filling replaces part of a tooth that has been lost because of decay or through accidental damage.
Traditionally the main filling used is Amalgam which is a grey/silver metal. This is a very strong material and paticularly good in back teeth.
Nowadays a number of "white" filling materials are available such as composite, glass ionomer and compomer. These are particularly good for replacing edges on front teeth as they stick to the tooth.
Composite filling materials are increasingly used in back teeth and they can be very natural looking. At Rumney Hill Dental Surgery Cardiff we use the highest quality materials to ensure the most aesthetic and long lasting results.
