Composite resin: The most esthetically pleasing option, a composite resin filling uses a plastic mixture filled with glass that creates an esthetically pleasing and natural tooth finish. The composite resin is placed in layers and uses a curing light to set the filling.
Inlays: Inlay fillings are made of either gold or porcelain and are usually completed in two visits. On the first visit the decayed area of the tooth is removed and an impression of the tooth is taken. During the second visit the gold or porcelain filling is cemented into place.
