Dental fillings - a way to repair cavities

What is a filling?

Tooth filling is a dental procedure that uses a composite material to restore a tooth to natural health and treat tooth decay in small and medium-sized cavities. Cosmetic tooth-colored fillings can also be used to treat various other dental problems, such as broken teeth or severe tooth discoloration.

How do I know if I need a filling?

During an exam, your dentist can tell if you have a cavity that needs to be filled. But symptoms and signs can also appear:
- Sensitivity to hot and cold.
- Pain when biting or chewing.
- A dark spot you can see or a hole you can feel.
- Toothache while enjoying sweet food.
- Broken or lost filling
- Broken tooth.
