What is a dental filling?

Fillings are used to fix broken teeth, to fill a cavity, or to replace old fillings that might be damaged in need of repair. Your dentist will first remove all the decay from the tooth, then provide the filling to prevent further infection or decay.

Why are dental fillings necessary?

A damaged or decayed tooth can expose the interior of the tooth to bacteria. Once inside the tooth's structure, bacteria can dissolve any healthy tooth enamel and cause infection of the tissues.

It is important to start treatment before tooth decay becomes worse. Progressive decay may cause severe pain, tooth loss or may require more extensive treatment such as a crown, a root canal, or tooth removal.

What are the benefits of dental fillings?

A dental filling:

  • Protects the remaining healthy tooth from further damage
  • Restores sufficient function of the tooth
  • Prevents damage to the nerve of the tooth
  • Prevents tooth loss and any future need for more invasive dental treatment
