Treatments > Restorative treatments > Fillings

The materials used depend on the position of the tooth and the size and depth of the cavity to be filled. Amalgam is still a popular choice for back teeth. Composite resin is tooth-coloured which is useful for front fillings and small back fillings. If you have a very large old metal filling the ultimate way of restoring it is to place a ceramic restoration. This will look natural, be very strong and is likely to prevent further breakdown of the remaining tooth walls.
