When plaque builds up on the outer surface of the tooth, the acid within it can eat away at the enamel, eventually causing tiny holes or cavities to form.
It is vital that these cavities are filled to prevent further damage to the enamel and to protect the internal structures of your tooth.
At Moorside Dental Practice, we offer a range of filling types to protect and strengthen your teeth. These include metal fillings as well as white fillings, which blend into the teeth and are barely visible to the eye.
Unfortunately, fillings are one of the most common forms of dental treatment and most adults will require a filling during their lifetime.
It is important to maintain a consistent and effective home care routine so that you can reduce the build-up of plaque on your teeth and avoid the need for fillings. You should also avoid sugary drinks and foods as much as possible.
