WHITE FILLINGS

Overview

A filling repairs and restores the surface of a tooth that has been damaged by decay, fracture, or wear. A dental filling strengthens the tooth. If tooth decay is not repaired at its early stages, it will worsen and additional or alternative dental treatments may be necessary. W


When Are Fillings Needed


A filling prescription is made when:

  • The surface enamel of a tooth is damaged due to decay, fracture, or wear.
  • A tooth's surface needs to be evened out to improve your ability to bite or chew.
