ooth fillings are one of the most commonly required dental procedures. Fillings are typically used as a treatment for cavities but may also be used to fix a broken or cracked tooth. Sometimes a filling can be used to repair teeth that have worn down from grinding.
The purpose of a filling is to prevent further damage and decay to the tooth as well as to return the tooth to a state where you can chew and bite normally. The filling material that is used will depend on the amount of repair needed to restore the tooth.
