“I would usually wait to replace a filling but my tooth was in so much pain overnight that first thing in the morning I booked an appointment with Dr Pedro and was so pleased I did. Lovely practice. Might even become a patient!”
The tooth can receive a new dental filling, composite bonding or in cases of serious tooth decay, a dental crown.
A filling was placed initially to protect your tooth from infection, decay and further deterioration. It’s vital to keep the tooth structure strong and healthy, so you can avoid extraction.
Do not try to treat the dental filling at home with at-home repair kits. They can be tempting, but remember you can cause more damage and cause sensitivity issues that might be beyond repair.
