If bacteria has worn away a small portion of your tooth, you may require a dental filling. White fillings will build the tooth up and restore your tooth to its natural function and protect the tooth from further damage.
Prior to placing the filling, Dr. Lee will administer a local anesthetic to ensure your comfort. He will remove the decayed portion of the tooth, clean the surrounding area, and then fill the cavity.
Continue to brush and floss your teeth regularly and be sure to keep regular exams and hygiene appointments (cleanings).
