What’s the Purpose of a Tooth Filling?
A tooth filling is used to cover part of a tooth that has been damaged due to decay, effectively restoring function and preventing further damage. Tooth fillings can be silver, gold or other substances and the location of the filling can, in part, determine the type of filling needed. Fillings can be permanent or temporary. When you make an appointment at our office in Manassas, your dentist will evaluate your teeth and recommend the best type of filling for your situation.
