Caries treatment and fillings

This is also named conservative treatment and is meant to protect the tooth vitality and to reconstruct lost tissue.

The materials used are the following:

  • Amalgam, performed in the dental office
  • Composite, performed in the dental office or in collaboration with a dental laboratory
  • Glass Ionomere, performed in the dental office
  • Gold performed with the collaboration of a dental laboratory. See also crowns and bridges

The choice between these options will depend on the importance of the restoration, its position (aesthetics), its cost, the occlusion requirements and the patient’s desire.
