Dental fillings can repair teeth that have become cracked, fractured, or decayed. In the course of one appointment, the affected portion of your tooth will be removed and the remaining structure will be cleaned and filled. Composite (tooth-colored) fillings can be matched closely to the color of your existing teeth.
Your filling will be placed in just one appointment. When preparing your tooth for your composite filling, Dr. Orandi will remove all present decay and thoroughly clean the rest of your tooth. If the decay was near the tooth’s nerve, the doctor may apply a special medication for your protection. After your tooth has been prepared, your composite filling will precisely be placed, shaped, and polished.
After receiving your filling, Dr. Orandi will give you specific care and instructions about your new restoration. She will tell you how to deal with any short-term sensitivity and how to maintain your newly-restored dental health. Please give our dental office a call today to schedule your next appointment. Here, you will receive the restorative treatments you need to achieve a healthy and pain-free smile.
