Dental fillings are used to replace missing tooth structures caused by decay or trauma. Teeth become hollow as a result of decay. Dental fillings help to close the gap and keep it from decaying further. A filling can also be used to restore teeth that have been damaged or cracked, as well as teeth that wear off due to habits such as teeth grinding and nail-biting.
