what to expect with composite fillings
Composite fillings are completed in one visit. The first step is to numb the tooth and remove the decayed area. The space where decay is removed is then cleaned and filled with the composite resin to the shape of the natural tooth. When the decay extends near the nerve, a medication is placed before the composite filling by our dentists.
When fillings are placed, you may be sensitive to heat and cold at first, but this subsides once you get used to the new filling. For more information about fillings and our other services, please browse our website and contact us for an appointment.
