Dealing with a cavity not only impacts your ability to chew and speak, but can also hit your confidence and overall wellness. That’s where fillings come in handy. In just one visit, your tooth can be restored to its natural health, so you can start smiling again.
Why should I get a filling?
Cavities are a pain and can only worsen when left untreated. You deserve to have a smile that allows you to chew, speak, eat, and laugh with ease. Fortunately, cavities are simple enough to treat and even easier to prevent. A dental filling can treat cavities in just an hour-long appointment. And by visiting your dentist for regular cleanings and exams every 6 months, we can help you prevent future cavities altogether.
No need for a silvery reminder of your cavity. With a tooth-colored filling, your tooth will match the rest of your smile for a natural, seamless look.
The Dental Fillings Treatment Process
First, your dentist will apply local anesthesia to numb the nerves near the treatment area. This ensures you won’t feel any pain or discomfort throughout the filling process.
Removal Of Decay
Next, a dental drill will be used to remove decayed enamel and damaged material from your tooth. Then, your dentist will clean and disinfect the area to prepare it for your filling.
Filling The Tooth
Your dentist will fill your tooth and restore its structure with the filling material. Once the tooth has been filled, the filling will be trimmed and adjusted to ensure it looks natural and feels comfortable.
