If bacteria has worn away a small portion of your tooth, you may need a filling to remove the bacteria (decay) and restore your tooth to its natural, healthy form. If you are experiencing a toothache or sensitivity to hot, cold, or sweets, ask about dental fillings. Decay may be detected at a regular visit, even before you notice any symptoms. No matter how small, it is critical to treat decay as soon as possible.
Maintaining Your White Fillings
You should care strictly for your dental fillings and your natural teeth. Continue to brush and floss regularly and keep regular exams and hygiene appointments.
