    Today, several dental filling materials are available. Teeth can be filled with gold; porcelain; silver amalgam (which consists of mercury mixed with silver, tin, zinc, and copper); or tooth-colored, plastic, and materials called composite resin fillings. There is also a material that contains glass particles and is known as glass ionomer. This material is used in ways similar to the use of composite resin fillings.


        Mainly, there are 2 types of filling: Direct filling and Indirect filling

              - Direct fillings consist of Almagam filling, Composite filling and GIC filling ( Glass- Ionomer Cement).

              -Indirect fillings consist of Metal casted filling ( Gold, Semi-precious metal, Titanium, Chrome-Cobalt)


       The location and extent of the decay, cost of filling material, your insurance coverage, and our dentist's recommendation assist in determining the type of filling best for you.
