Fillings

 

Our caring dentist staff makes every effort to ensure that your visit at our dentist office is comfortable and pleasant in every way.

 

Our procedure for fillings is designed to give you top notch professional dental care.  First, one of our dentists will use a local anesthetic to numb the area around the tooth to be filled.  Next, we will remove the decayed or damaged area of the tooth.

 

Next, one of our dentists will test the area to determine if all the decay has been removed.  Once the decay has been removed, the dentist will prepare the space for the filling by cleaning the cavity of bacteria and debris.  If the decay is near the root,  the dentist may protect the nerve.  After the filling is in, your dentist will finish and polish it.

 

Several additional steps are required for tooth-colored fillings and are as follows.  After the dentist has removed the decay and cleaned the area, the tooth-colored material is applied in layers.  Next, a special light that "cures" or hardens each layer is applied.  When the multi-layering process is completed, the dentist will shape the composite material to the desired result, trim off any excess material, and polish the final restoration.
