Most of the time, tooth colored filling material (composite) can be used if the cavity is not too large. If a significant amount of tooth structure is missing, a porcelain crown may be best.
Other filling materials are available depending on the situation. The doctor will discuss what is most appropriate for you.
To treat a cavity your dentist will remove the decayed portion of the tooth and then "fill" the area on the tooth where the decayed material was removed.
