n Filling is necessary when tooth is decay and defected. It can be cause by cracked, tooth broken, or tooth grinding.
n Dentists may determine your tooth decay (caries) by special dental instruments and X-rays.
n How it is performed?
Dentists will use different kinds of drill to remove the decay and unsupported enamel of the tooth, then place filling material directly into the cavity and use special light to make it harden.
l We usually use composite resin filling materials (match the same color as your teeth)
l You may be given local anesthesia to numb the area if necessary.
