How Q.T. Dental Helps Protect Your Teeth From Further Decay

What Is A Dental Filling?

Fillings are a way to restore a tooth that has been damaged by decay and bring it back to its normal shape and function. A filling involves removal of the decay from the tooth, cleaning and shaping the area, then it will be filled with a filling material. This doesn’t mean that you can stop brushing and flossing though. Without proper hygiene habits, decay can come back.

What Are Fillings Made Of?

Fillings are made of different types of materials. There are Composite resin fillings (tooth coloured fillings), Amalgam or silver fillings, and porcelain fillings. We will recommend the best type of material for your filling.
