Cavities are most commonly the result of tooth decay but other causes include cracked or broken teeth, or teeth that have been damaged by nail-biting, tooth grinding or trauma . Once the need for a filling is diagnosed, your dentist will remove the decayed portion of your tooth and then fill the area with the most suitable filling material. During what is a short pain appointment.
