Fillings are necessary if the dentist detects caries (decay) in a tooth or a deficiency with fillings. Two types of fillings are available, an amalgam (silver) filling or a tooth coloured/white filling. Amalgam (silver) fillings are usually ideal for medium to large sized cavities. Amalgam does not bond or stick to teeth and depends on enough tooth structure being present to hold the filling in place. If the cavity is relatively small, an adhesive tooth coloured filling may be the ideal treatment; however these can also be used in medium sized cavities on front or back teeth. White fillings (tooth coloured fillings) can bond to tooth structure, matching the colour, texture and shape of your teeth
