If you require a filling, you have the option of a metal amalgam (mercury based) filling or a resin based tooth coloured filling.  At our practice, we have decided to only offer tooth coloured restorations as this is what we have found the majority of patients these days opt for.  It is important that these are placed in a very dry environment as any moisture during placement of this filling will affect the quality of the bond between the filling and the tooth.  We use a special dam around the tooth to isolate the tooth away from the rest of the mouth to ensure that we keep the tooth completely dry during placement which will stop any water and materials going into the mouth making the whole entire experience so much more pleasant for you.  A lot of our patients even fall asleep during this procedure!
