Our Dental Fillings Procedure
At Illume Dental, we have perfected the art and science of dental fillings, ensuring our patients receive treatments that are both efficient and comfortable. Here’s a snapshot of our meticulous procedure:
- Consultation & Diagnosis: Before the actual filling, we use advanced diagnostic tools to identify the areas of decay or damage. This initial assessment allows us to choose the right type of filling and prepare you for the procedure.
- Local Anesthesia: Your comfort is paramount to us. We administer a local anesthetic to numb the area around the affected tooth, ensuring a pain-free experience throughout.
- Tooth Preparation: Our experienced dentists will gently remove the decayed or affected portion of the tooth, cleaning the area thoroughly to prevent any further decay.
- Filling Placement: Based on your unique needs and preferences, the chosen filling material—whether composite resin, ceramic, gold, or another type—is then carefully placed in the prepared cavity. It’s molded to the shape of the tooth, ensuring functionality and a natural look.
- Finishing Touches: We polish the filled tooth to achieve a smooth finish, ensuring it feels just like your natural teeth and restoring your smile to its radiant best.
At Illume Dental, every step is executed with precision, care, and a deep commitment to your oral health and overall well-being. Trust in us for a dental fillings procedure that stands the test of time.
