What Is A Dental Filling?
Fillings are used by most dentists as a treatment for chips, cavities and small cracks. When applying fillings, the dentist will remove the affected area of the tooth and then bond a tooth-colored material to the tooth. Once polished, the tooth will look, and function, just like a health tooth. Fillings are capable of lasting you for the rest of your life, but can be replaced if necessary.
