Tooth Filling Process
Once we’ve decided to move forward with a filling and determined the proper materials to use, we will use a local anesthetic to numb the area. Next, we’ll remove the damaged portion of the tooth and fill the empty area. Once the filling has been placed, it will be shaped and modified to fit flawlessly with your natural tooth. You will be asked to bite down several times to ensure it feels comfortable for you. Oftentimes, no follow-up appointment is necessary and you may continue with your daily lifestyle.
There are several types of tooth fillings, but tooth-colored fillings often provide patients with the most satisfaction. Composed of composite resins, these fillings have the ability to mimic a tooth’s appearance and function. Whether you need a filling on your front tooth or a molar, composite fillings can work for you.
Tooth Filling Cost
