A tooth filling is a synthetic material used to restore the structure of teeth that have become damaged as a result of tooth decay (cavities) or injuries such as fissures or cracks; the filling allows for the tooth to get a restart on health.
Dental fillings adhere perfectly to the surface of the teeth and are virtually undetectable to the eye.
