what is a filling? Made of a composite material, a filling or inlay is attached to your tooth to fill a hole caused by decay.
Why do i need a filling? When a tooth is attacked by plaque acids and it becomes softened, dental or tooth decay happens. The attack dissolves away both the enamel and dentine of your tooth to produce a cavity or hole. Your dentist in Swindon will remove the decay and restore the function of your tooth with a tooth coloured filling.
