Fillings are a way to restore teeth damaged by decay back to its normal function and shape.
When a dentist gives you a white filling, he or she first removes the bacteria and decayed tooth material, cleans, and then fills the space with a tooth-colored filling material.
The white composite resin material is then polished to align your custom bite. Because you may be numb from the freezing, a small test drive is needed to see if the filling is to your satisfaction. You will be asked you to come back ASAP if you notice sensitivity for a quick follow up bite adjustment.
