For Durability, Strength, and Aesthetics

What are White Teeth Fillings?

Dental filling is a restorative procedure to treat and restore teeth damage and decay. This treatment helps improve the strength, structure and functionality of your teeth and gums. Dental fillings are also used to repair damaged and fractured teeth. Dental decay and cavities are one of the most common dental problems faced by most people. Generally, they are caused due to unhealthy eating habits and ignorance towards dental care. The food particles stick to the teeth and bacteria uses them to produce acids that damage the tooth enamel. If the tooth decay is not treated on time, it gets worse and then you may have to undergo root canal treatment or the tooth could fracture resulting in extraction of the tooth or a crown.
