Dealing with tooth decay is one of the most common dental problems our dentists at Battery Hill Dental address on a regular basis. Teeth that have been damaged by decay but do not require extraction can typically be treated by fillings to restore their look, function, and health.

Today, more people are opting to have tooth coloured fillings instead of metal amalgam ones.
