What is the procedure for dental fillings?
Most patients dread the filling process as they think it will be painful. The process is started by numbing the area with an anesthetic. Once your mouth is numb, the decayed part of the tooth is removed. After removing the decay, the dentist meticulously cleans the tooth to remove all bacteria before filling it. Finally, the tooth is filled with dental composite material. The filling covers the tooth, preventing any further decay of the leftover enamel. The dental filling helps build the tooth back up so that you can go back to your normal routine, including eating your favorite foods. No one will even know that you have a filling because the composite matches your tooth enamel seamlessly.
