Are you about to restore your oral health with a tooth-colored filling? If so, our Personal Dental Care team is happy to help you prepare for your appointment!

The more you know about the treatment process, the more prepared you will be. So, when you come into our office to meet with Dr. , you can expect the following treatment steps:

-Step 1: First, your dentist will prevent pain by numbing the tooth and surrounding gums with a local anesthetic. Then, once your mouth is numb, he will remove the decayed portion of your tooth with a special tool, which will be either a dental drill, air abrasion instrument, or laser.

-Step 2: Next, your dentist will deeply clean the tooth and will remove any particles or debris that are present.

-Step 3: Once the tooth is completely clean, your dentist will begin applying the tooth-colored filling in layers. After each layer is placed, he will harden it with a special light. This will ensure stability and success.

-Step 4: After the filling is placed in the tooth, your dentist will trim and shape the top of the filling to make it fit with the bite. Your dentist might also polish it to give it a natural and beautiful appearance.
