What Are Tooth Fillings?

Dental fillings improve the shape and function of decaying teeth. When a dentist installs a filling, he/she removes the decaying tissue inside the tooth. The cavity will then be cleaned out by the dentist before being filled with gold, porcelain, or other materials. This filling helps to prevent the tooth from getting more decayed or damaged in the days to come.
