A dental filling is a restorative treatment used to repair and restore the appearance and function of a tooth damaged by accident or decay. Fillings are commonly used to fill a cavity left by tooth decay, but they also have several cosmetic uses to restore chipped or cracked teeth.
Fillings can be made from several materials, including metal, plastics, and composite resins. Depending on your needs, you can choose a material that closely resembles the color of your tooth for a seamless restoration. Once the fillings are in place, they are polished to make them less noticeable, smoother, and resistant to staining.
Dental fillings have something in common just about every dental restoration – the better care you take of your teeth, the longer they will last. With that said, fillings are known for their durability and can last upwards of 15 years with the appropriate level of care.
