If you’ve had a dental cavity, most likely you’ve also had a tooth filling. Tooth fillings are used to fill cavities after decay has been removed. Decay can be found in a tooth by taking x-rays or simply by examining your smile. Tooth fillings help restore a tooth and protect it from further damage. Fillings blend in naturally with your smile because the materials are tooth-colored. Composite resin used to create the tooth filling is durable and made to last. Fillings can handle the constant use of a natural molar and last for many years. If you are in need of a tooth filling in New York, NY, call today to schedule a visit!
