Fillings

Unless you’re one of the lucky few cavity free people out there at some point you’ve probably experienced having a tooth filling.  Fillings are the most common type of dental restoration.  When cavities or decay form on a tooth it needs to be drilled out and “filled” with other material to stop the spread of decay that can cause more serious problems down the road.  A filling may also be used for cosmetic reasons such as repairing a chipped tooth or filling in a space between teeth.  Good oral hygiene will help keep dental decay and cavities from happening so make sure you’re brushing at least twice a day and yes, flossing daily as well!
