Every time you enjoy a hot drink or a cold ice-cream, the temperature changes dramatically. When you bite or chew food, the forces can be more than 100 pounds per square inch. However, there are some things you can do to help your dental restorations last a little longer. Dental Fillings Fillings are necessary if you develop a cavity in a tooth, and most modern dental fillings in Newcastle are made from a tooth-coloured material called composite resin or from porcelain that has been milled to create a precision fitting restoration.
