When a particular tooth of a person has become worn out or its enamel partially damaged by a cavity, a dentist may advise their patient to have it restored by inserting a filling. Patients may choose with the help of their dentist the kind of filling they think is right for them.
- Patients may want composite fillings or ceramic fillings if they want the filling to be the same color of their natural teeth.
- For patients who want a much more durable filling, they may want to consider gold fillings. These are more expensive than other types of fillings, but they will last up to 15 years.
- Children who still have their milk teeth may be advised to get glass ionomer fillings due to its effectiveness in preventing decay.
