A filling is a way to restore a decayed and/or broken tooth back to its normal shape and function.
If you have a tooth that requires a filling, we will first remove the decayed tooth material, then clean the affected area and fill the cleaned-out cavity with a filling material. This filling will help prevent further decay by closing off any cracks or spaces where bacteria might enter. fillings in very visible areas. Amalgam fillings generally last longer than composite restorations.
