So, What is a Tooth Filling?

Over time, a film of plaque will form on your teeth. When bacteria in your mouth is combined with saliva and food debris, it produces acids that dissolve and damage the enamel, the tooth surface, and cause tooth decay.

Here, your teeth can develop tiny holes. If left untreated, these cavities can become larger and lead to serious dental problems.

Cavities can expose the nerves in your teeth, which can cause anything from minor discomfort due to greater sensitivity to hot and cold food and drink, to significant pain due and even nerve damage.

To prevent this from happening, your dentist will place a small amount of tooth-coloured filling material into the cavity. This helps to restore the tooth’s strength, function and appearance while reducing the risk of further decay.
