Tooth fillings are a way to restore a tooth that has been damaged by decay.
Cosmetic white fillings such as composite fillings are the most widely used dental filling materials as they are the nearest to tooth-coloured fillings.
- Your dentist will examine your mouth and check the cavity. They may take an X-ray of the tooth to see the extent of the tooth decay.
- You may have a local anaesthetic to numb the tooth area. This will help prevent any pain.
- Once the area is numb, your dentist will clean and remove the tooth decay.
- The dentist will sterilise and prepare the area for the filling and then fill the hole.
- Your tooth may feel a little sore or sensitive after the filling.
Regular appointments are essential in maintaining and improving your oral health, especially if you want to avoid costly procedures and treatments in the future. Please call and arrange an appointment by calling our friendly dental team today.
