Dental Fillings

What are Dental Fillings?

Dental fillings are a common and essential procedure used to repair teeth that have been affected by decay or damage. The process involves removing the decayed tooth material, cleaning the affected area, and then filling the cavity with a filling material. This not only restores the tooth to its original shape but also prevents further decay by closing off any cracks or spaces where bacteria might enter.
