Initially you will be given a local
anaesthetic to numb the area. The decayed area of
the tooth is then removed with drills, micro air abrasion
or a dental laser.
A special dental material is used to roughen up the
surface of the exposed enamel, to achieve a stronger
bond. Composite resin fillings are applied in thin
layers, and slowly built up to form the complete filling.
A special paper is used to check the height of your
dental filling and that your bite remains correct.
Your tooth is then polished.
