Fillings

When a portion of the tooth affected by tooth decay is removed, dental fillings are done in order to restore the function and/or aesthetics of the tooth.

Bacteria present in our mouth will initiate cavitations. Fillings are essential to arrest the carious process and to halt its progression.
