Fillings

Fillings are done to remove decay and they replace the affected tooth structure. It’s called a filling because a new material fills the hole that decay left behind. Today, most teeth are treated with bonded tooth-colored composite resin.

Caught early enough, cavities can be treated easily and painlessly. If not treated, decay can lead to tooth pain and/or infection. This can cause a need for root canal treatment or tooth extraction.
