13 Apr Video: How Do Dentists Fix Cavities?
If you have a cavity, it is important to see your dentist for treatment, as the damage can continue to worsen without medical attention.
This video explains the different types of restorations that may be used for cavity treatment. Fillings are most common, and these can be made from a variety of materials. The filling blocks the hole in the tooth so that it cannot continue to get bigger. When cavities reach a certain size, fillings are no longer effective, so the tooth may need to be capped with a porcelain or metal crown.
