What’s the Function of a Tooth Filling?

If your tooth has decay or damage, a tooth filling can stop the deterioration and restore the functionality of your tooth. A filling can alleviate pain and swelling and help ensure that your tooth doesn’t need to be removed. For more information, call our Philadelphia office and we’ll happily answer your questions.

What Should I Expect to Pay for a Dental Crown, Dental Bridge, or a Tooth Filling Cost?
