If a tooth becomes damaged by decay, fillings are usually required. It is an easy procedure, whereby any decayed material will be removed by your dentist from the tooth and the cavity filled to prevent bacteria entering, thus preventing further decay. Treatments can usually be completed in a matter of minutes.
The procedure involves your dentist injecting the area around the affected tooth to numb the area. The areas of decay will be removed by drilling out the tooth. After thoroughly cleaning the tooth, the dentist will use appropriate filling material to fill the cavity. A number of materials are used to make fillings including gold, composite, resin and porcelain. Your dentist will decide with you the best option for your particular circumstances.
Once the chosen filling material has been applied to the tooth and hardened, your dentist will file down the surface of the filling until the correct size is achieved.
