What are fillings?
Fillings help to restore your damaged teeth to their normal shape and function. Your dentist will first remove the decay from inside your tooth. Depending on the damage to your tooth, there are several types of fillings.
Common signs you may need a filling include:
- Sensitivity of the tooth to cold or sugary foods
- Toothache or pain, in or near the tooth
- A hole in the tooth that is visible to see or feel
We recommend visiting your dentist regularly for routine check-ups to identify any problem areas early. Tackling problems early means that treatment will be less invasive and more affordable.
We believe that prevention is the key to a healthy mouth.
