Dental Filling Procedure
During your preventative dental check-ups and cleanings, name ( Dentist) will diagnose your teeth and gums, along with the supporting bone structure. Once he/she detects an area affected by damage or decay, name ( Dentist) will begin preparing the tooth for restoration. The damage or decay will be removed by a dental laser or hand piece prior to disinfection. After the bacteria and decay is removed, the tooth will be isolated to prevent moisture from interfering in the bonding of the composite filling to the tooth. Once the adhesive is set, it is cured with a high intensity light causing it to harden and the restoration process is complete.
