Tooth decay or dental caries are caused by bacteria that produce acid. These acids breakup the hard surfaces of the tooth and the dental caries produce holes. The dentist needs to scrape away the decay and then fill the holes. This keeps the esthetics and functionality of the tooth and these fillings are the most common procedure done by dentists. Traditional fillings used to be amalgam made from gold and silver. These are durable but you can see them when they are near the front of the mouth. Composite resin is used instead of metal amalgam which is colored to match your teeth for an attractive appearance.
