Generally, when the extent of caries is limited only to the enamel or dentine, fillings are advised to restore the tooth.
‘Dental Filling’ is a procedure that involves replacing the damaged portion of a tooth with a strong, biocompatible and aesthetically pleasing dental material that is capable of restoring the dental structure and protecting it from further damage.
