Fillings: There are a variety of materials that can be used. Some of them are place directly in one visit so that everything is taken care of at the same appointment, and sometimes they are indirectly made, and placed at a later appointment. Today's materials are mostly tooth colored and specially made to work well in the mouth and keep the tooth and the smile healthy.
