What Is a Tooth Filling?
You may know that a tooth filling is something that people receive after being treated for cavities. However, do you know exactly what a filling is and how it works? A dental filling is a restorative material applied at the site of a cavity. It literally “fills” the space eaten away by the harmful bacteria that caused your cavity, protecting your tooth’s structural integrity and function.
The teeth filling process is generally fast, simple, and minimally invasive. Our dentist will prepare your tooth for its filling by cleaning away areas infected by decay. He will then apply the tooth preparation, which is the restorative material that hardens to form a filling.
