The key is finding a dentist who knows how to address the problem. Visit us if you need a filling and you reside in the Cape May and Atlantic Counties of New Jersey, including Egg Harbor Township, Marmora, Somers Point, Sea Isle, and Ocean City.
How Our Dentists Place a Filling
Fillings are made of a variety of materials. We use tooth-colored fillings to restore the strength and natural appearance of your teeth. As for the process involved with inserting a filling into a tooth, it’s simple. To begin with, our dentist uses a local anesthetic to numb the area. Then, we take the following steps to finish the procedure:
- We use a water cooled hand piece to remove the decayed area
- Our team probes the area to determine whether we successfully removed all decayed material
- Once we remove the decayed tissue, we clean the cavity, removing bacteria and debris
- If the decay is near the root, we might line it with a glass ionomer or resin material to protect the nerve
- Once we place the filling, we polish the area for appearance’s sake
- There may be extra steps depending on the situation, but we’ll be sure to communicate our intentions
