Filling and Tooth Coloring in Old Bridge NJ

 

Dental Tooth Fillings are used when damage to the tooth does not compromise the structural integrity of the tooth or its health. The filling is a plug (often in the form of plastic like resin), which prevents germs and debris from entering the tooth.

 

Fillings are a way to restore a tooth damaged by decay, back to its normal function and/or shape. Before a Filling is applied, the removal of the decayed tooth material, cleaning of the affected area and filling material is required. Fillings prevent further decay by closing off the area/space where bacteria can enter.

 

In the case where a dental tooth filling may be very large, there is more likely the loss of the structural integrity of the original tooth and in which case the Dentist may recommend a Crown.
