The Filling Process
After numbing the area to ensure your comfort, Dr. Thompson will carefully remove the damaged portions of your tooth while taking care to preserve healthy areas. Once the tooth is properly cleaned and prepared, he’ll place the composite resin material, shape it to match its surroundings, and harden it in place with a special light. That’s it! The procedure is finished in just one appointment.
In addition to their natural look, tooth-colored fillings also allow our team to save even more of your natural tooth, and the lack of metals means that you won’t suffer from sensitivity caused by changes in temperature. Your tooth will be able to thrive!
