Dental Fillings

Dental Fillings are white or metal based covers that restore the surface of a tooth that has been affected by decay and caries. The tooth filling is done to stop further erosion, any pain or stopping the decay affecting the nerve roots of the tooth.

Dental Fillings are usually done by a restorative or general dentist.
