A tooth filling is performed to gap a cavity in it. Depending on how deep the cavity is, the dentist may or may not use local anesthetic.
There are two types of tooth filling the composite and and amalgam (a mix of several metals).
The composite filling is white and the amalgam has a silver colour.
Depending on how big the cavity is and the concerns of amalgam content, it might be recommended to chose an inlay core solution.
