Filling a cavity is the most common dental procedure performed by the dentist. The process involves removing any decayed material from a tooth so that a protective layer of healthy enamel remains. In most cases, filling a cavity is relatively straightforward, but it may be necessary to remove more of the decay and make room for a filling.
A composite resin filling, also known as a restorative filling, is a material that combines tooth-colored fillers with a hardening substance. It is used to fill minor cavities, cracks and fissures, and is often recommended for minor tooth repairs.
Fillings allow us to restore your teeth back to their proper shape and function after successfully removing all decay and sources of infection.

No. Your dentist will numb the area and use a numbing gel before injecting a local anesthetic known as Lidocaine. You may feel a bit of a sting, but that’s a reaction from the local anesthetic when it starts to block the nerve signals to stop the pain.
