How are Dental Fillings Applied?
The procedure is not very time-consuming and finishes in an hour only. We start it by numbing the infected tooth using local anesthesia. It will ensure that you do not experience discomfort throughout the procedure.
Next, we remove the decayed area of your teeth using dental instruments. After removing the infection, we cleanse the area using a gel. This gel acts as an antiseptic and kills all the bacteria that lingers around your teeth and gums. The gel also wears off your surrounding enamel to make the teeth rough. This roughness is essential to bond the dental filling properly.
We apply a bonding agent to the enamel and cure or harden it using a special blue light. We fill your teeth with the chosen dental filling. After the treatment, you are expected to follow proper oral hygiene to maintain your teeth and dental filling in the long run. Ensure brushing, flossing, and rinsing with mouthwash regularly.
