Dental Filling

User Level:
A dental cavity, also called caries, are permanently damaged areas in your teeth that develop into tiny holes. If left untreated, cavities can result in further dental problems that may lead to root canal treatment or tooth loss. If you feel sensitivity to sweet, cold or hot food and beverages, then it’s time to visit your dentist. During treatment, our dentist will remove the decay, clean the area and stuff the cavity with a filling material such as amalgam, porcelain, composite, or even gold.
