Fillings

Fillings are done to remove decay and replace the affected tooth structure. It is called a filling because new material fills holes that decay left. Now days most teeth are treated with bonded tooth-colored composite resin fillings. Caught early enough, cavities can be treated easily and painlessly. If not treated, decay can lead to tooth pain and/or infection, and the tooth would need root canal treatment or extraction.
