Dental Filling An Overview
Dental fillings are the standard treatment for repairing tooth decay. Fillings may also be used to repair minor tooth damage such as surface chips or cracks. Dental fillings effectively restore the structure and aesthetic of a damaged tooth, sealing out bacteria helping to prevent future decay.
