Do I need Dental Fillings?
You might need dental fillings in cases of:
Tooth Decay is one of the most common factors that require a filling. The filling helps stop the decay from further developing or reaching the dental pulp, which might end up causing pain and requiring Root Canal Treatment instead.
Chipped or Broken Teeth can lead to plaque build-up and eventually lead to tooth decays.
What to expect during the procedure?
The dentist will start by removing the weakened or decayed part of the tooth first, and clean the cavity, preparing it to fill with a filling material.
The filling is placed and shaped into the cavity, polishing it until it is smooth and making sure that you have a harmonious bite.
