To keep decay and bacteria from spreading from one tooth to the next it is important to always address any treatment the doctor suggests as soon as possible. Fillings are a common and simple treatment to restore the function and strength of your teeth that presently have minor damages from decay.
Dr. Schneider will start by cleaning away any decay present on the tooth. She will then thoroughly dry the tooth and apply a bonding material followed up by the composite materiel that will restore the tooth structure. Finally, after curing the material with a light, Dr. Schneider will check and adjust your specific bite.
*After treatment is complete you can chew on the tooth immediately, but please always be careful chewing until the numbness wears off as we do not want you to accidentally bite your tongue or cheek.
