If a tooth suffers from minor decay or another form of damage, our dentist may suggest a restoration known as a filling. A dental filling is one of the most common types of restorations we provide, and many patients are familiar with fillings as the usual restoration of choice for a cavity. To place a filling, our dentist will first remove the decayed and damaged portion of the tooth. After carefully sanitizing the tooth, we place the filling material in the space left in the structure of the tooth. Dr. Eric Cornelius then shapes the filling to match the contours of the tooth and to fit your natural bite. Finally, we use a special light to harden (“cure”) the filling and provide a lasting restoration for your smile. The process for placing a dental filling in San Antonio, Texas, can be completed in just one visit to Nautical Dental, restoring your smile’s health in just one simple appointment. If you experience tooth pain, or if your tooth is abnormally sensitive to hot and cold temperatures, you may need a dental filling. We welcome you to call or visit our friendly dental office today to learn more about fillings and to set up your next appointment with our experienced dentist.
