Composite fillings are a beautiful way to fill your cavities and restore your teeth back to pristine health. They are matched to the exact shade of your tooth so you never know that they are there. If you are looking to get a composite filling soon, you probably want to know what to expect.
First, Dr. Anthony J. Collins will administer a powerful and safe anesthetic so you don’t feel any pain or discomfort during your treatment. Next, he will remove the decayed portion of your tooth. Your dentist will also thoroughly clean the tooth to make sure there are no remaining bacteria and debris as a way to prevent future decay.
Then Dr. Anthony J. Collins will fill the tooth with the composite resin, layer by layer. Once each layer is placed, it will be hardened with a special dental light. Lastly, when the filling is placed and hardened, your dentist will shape it until it fits flawlessly in your bite and smile. Your dentist wants you to have a lovely dental restoration that offers amazing results.
