A filling is a dental procedure in which the decayed tooth portion is replaced by a material such as silver amalgam or a composite (white) filling. This procedure removes the present decay and prevents its further spread and repairs any damage to the tooth due to the decay. Timely caries detection and filling of the cavity results in decreased need for root canal treatment and tooth extraction.
With the advent of cosmetic dental fillings, traditional filling materials like silver amalgam are no longer desirable to use.
Smilekraft keeps international norms of mercury free clinic as WHO in 1991 claims that mercury absorption is 4 times higher from amalgam fillings and mercury vapors are highly toxic in nature.
Cosmetic fillings, also called tooth-colored fillings or white fillings, are dental fillings that closely match natural tooth color and appearance. Cosmetic fillings merge impeccably with the natural teeth, unlike silver amalgam fillings, which appear dissimilar from the remaining tooth structure.
Tooth-colored fillings can also be used to change the size, color or shape of your teeth. For example, cosmetic dental fillings can close gaps between teeth, repair chipped teeth or make teeth appear straighter and more even. Cosmetic fillings can also be used to replace old, silver amalgam fillings.

There are alternatives such as crowns and inlays, although they can cost a lot more. Veneers can be used on front teeth instead of crowns or fillings.
