A common dental procedure, fillings help to save teeth by minimizing damage, eliminating decay, and rebuilding the tooth. Modern fillings are done so well that they can easily replace dental enamel and restore structural integrity to a tooth while improving oral appearance. Once the procedure is completed, patients’ teeth will look as good as new. By removing decay and renewing tooth structure, fillings can add years of life to teeth. There are a number of filling options available, discuss with your dentist what the best solution is for you.
