One of the most common dental procedures we perform in our office at North Arkansas Dental Group is adding fillings to teeth with cavities due to decay. 

When it comes to the material used to create the filling, the two most popular are composite based and amalgam.  In our office, we use composite based fillings 99% of the time. Composite based filling have a natural tooth color that comes in various shades in order to match the color of your existing tooth. 

The size of the filling depends on the number of surfaces in which the decay is present. The amount of decay will be determined by an oral examination and x-rays.
