When a cavity is detected in your tooth, the best way to address it is to catch it early and conservatively treat it with a dental filling.
A filling is used to restore your tooth back to its normal function and shape after it has been damaged by tooth decay. We remove the decay from your tooth and replace the damaged tooth structure with resin composite filling material to restore your tooth to its natural state.
Unfortunately, a filling is not always the best option to repair and preserve your tooth. A filling requires a significant amount of surrounding tooth structure to help hold it in place. When a cavity is large or appears around an existing filling, there may no longer be enough tooth structure to properly retain a filling. In cases such as these, a dental crown would be indicated.
