Dental fillings are used to repair teeth that are affected by cracks, decay, and fractures, etc. In only one appointment, portion of the tooth that is decayed or affected will be cleaned, removed, and filled. Cosmetic (tooth-colored) fillings will then be matched closely to the color of your existing teeth and placed.
The procedure for fillings is usually completed in a single appointment. When preparing your tooth for the cosmetic filling, Dr. Bhanji will remove all decay and meticulously clean your tooth. A special numbing medication may be applied to your tooth if the decay was near the nerve of the tooth. After preparation, Dr. Bhanji will precisely place, shape, and polish your cosmetic filling.
At the end of your dental filling treatment, you will be given instructions and advice from Dr. Bhanji about how to care for your new filling. It is normal to feel some sensitivity when the treatment is first performed. Dr. Bhanji’s instructions will let you know how to manage any short-term sensitivity, and how to maintain your newly restored dental health. Please call our office today to schedule your next dental appointment and receive the treatment you need for a healthy and pain-free smile.
