Dental Filling is a treatment modality to restore missing tooth structure which could have been a result of decay or trauma. Decay makes tooth hollow. Dental Filling helps to fill this gap and protect it from further decay. A filling is also used to repair broken or cracked tooth and the teeth which wear off due to dental habits like teeth grinding, nail biting etc.

There are various signs and symptoms where fillings can be required.

The Symptoms could be as below:

  • A hole in your tooth
  • Dark spots on the tooth
  • Food stuck between certain areas of the teeth
  • Chipped or broken tooth
  • Sensitivity to hot and cold food and beverage
  • Single or multiple cavities

If you come across any of the symptoms mentioned above, then there is a chance that you need a filling. The final decision will be of your Dentist or Orthodontist after a thorough oral examination.
