So the unthinkable has happened and you have a cavity. Don’t be too hard on yourself as cavities are very common and they can be restored fairly quickly. The first step is to remove the decay. Once the decayed material has been removed, we will clean the area to remove bacteria and any debris.
The next step is to isolate the tooth to be repaired which will prevent moisture from interfering with the bonding process. The filling material will then be placed and carefully shaped to fit your tooth. A special bonding light is then used to harden the material.
You will be out of the chair in no time!
