Cavities are essentially holes in teeth caused by decay or damage. If the holes keep getting bigger they’ll become painful and eventually the tooth may have to be removed. If a chip, crack or cavity develops, you should get an appointment at your friendly dentist in Birkenhead since a broken tooth costs a lot to replace. The purpose of dental filling is to restore the structural and functional properties of the affected teeth by replacing the missing parts. Filling is a much simpler and shorter procedure than a root canal treatment or implants, which may be required if teeth with cavities are not filled in time.
Dental fillings can be composite, ceramic, amalgam or gold, all of which are available at Mokoia Road, your community dentist in Birkenhead.
