What to Expect When Receiving a Dental Filling

Are you nervous about treating the tooth decay that has attacked your smile? If so, don’t be! Taking care of tooth decay and restoring your tooth with a dental filling is a simple, easy, and quick treatment. It’s also painless. To help you know what to expect during your appointment, our [practice_name] team is happy to explain the treatment to you. When you meet with Dr. [doctor_name], you can expect the following treatment steps:

Step 1: First, your dentist will numb your tooth and gums with a local numbing agent. This will help you feel comfortable and relaxed in the dental chair, making sure you only feel slight amounts of pressure and no pain. When you are ready, [heshe] will remove the decayed portion of the tooth with a drill, air abrasion instrument, or laser. The tool used will depend on your dentist’s training and preference.

Step 2: Once the decay is removed, your dentist will deeply clean the tooth and make sure there are no bacteria or debris remaining.

Step 3: When your tooth is completely clean, [heshe] will fill the tooth with the dental filling. The material used to fill your tooth will depend on the tooth’s function and its visibility in the smile. Once your tooth is filled, [heshe] will finish and polish it to make it fit perfectly with your bite.
