To preserve your oral health, fillings are used to restore a damaged tooth so it both looks and functions normally. Typical signs that you may need include tooth sensitivity, an ache, food lodgement or pain in or around the tooth, or damage you can see or feel when touching the tooth.
The type of damage and state of the tooth cavity will influence what type of filling material the dentist will recommend or that you can choose. One popular choice is a composite resin(White filling), which can be customised in colour to match your own teeth, while other common fillings are amalgam and gold.
Not all fillings will have pain or other symptoms, so it’s important to have regular dental check-ups to prevent decay and detect any problems early on.
