Cavities in your teeth are best treated by dental fillings, which can also fix worn, cracked, or broken teeth. Fillings can restore tooth function, prevent further decay from cavities, and restore your smile in the process!
Dental decay creates cavities in your teeth. A dentist can remove that decay, thoroughly clean the inside of the tooth, and then use a special material to “fill” the space in the tooth left by the cavity.
The material used for fillings vary according to your needs and preferences, but fillings can be typically made of composite resin, Amalgam (silver), and even porcelain or gold (inlays or onlays bonded to the tooth)."E
If your tooth has been weakened due to decay from large cavities, your dentist may recommend covering the affected tooth with a crown after a filling in order to build tooth strength, and to protect the tooth from further damage.
