Fillings restore damaged teeth to their normal function and shape. When getting a filling, the tooth is numbed (using local anaesthetic) to minimise pain, the cavity is cleaned and prepared, and the filling is placed and set with a bright light.

As part of this process, we take special care to polish and smooth your filling so it’s comfortable in your mouth, and afterwards feels normal and natural, including when biting.

If you are concerned that you may need a filling, or are simply looking for a dental practice that can help to improve your dental health, please contact Floss Family Dental today.
