What is a Cavity Filling?

A cavity filling is a dental procedure where the dentist removes the decayed portion of a tooth and fills it with a material to restore its shape and function. This treatment helps prevent further decay and strengthens the tooth, allowing your child to eat, speak, and smile with confidence.
