A filling is commonly used by Dr. Bethaney B. Brenner to repair a modest-sized cavity that is located on the enamel layer of a tooth. The fillings are artificial materials that are designed to replace the decayed enamel and restore the full function of the compromised tooth. The tooth’s primary function, the location of the cavity, and its appearance in your smile will all determine the material that your dentist recommends for the filling.

Composite fillings are made from a resin material that can be shaded to match the color of the surrounding enamel. This filling can be applied in a single appointment.

Amalgam fillings are less expensive than gold or many other fillings, yet they are just as durable. Amalgam is dark in color so it is rarely used to fill a cavity in the front teeth.This kind of filling is made up of many different kinds of metals.
