A filling can be needed for a number of reasons. This can include if a tooth is decayed, broken or worn.

When getting a filling, the tooth can be 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.

At Floss, we take extra steps to ensure your fillings last as long as possible. To learn more about what we do to ensure this longevity, click here.
