Once you have arrived at your scheduled appointment with the dentist, our Cook Family Dental team will make you feel comfortable and relaxed for your procedure.
A filling procedure is relatively simple, taking between 15 minutes and an hour, depending on the severity and location of the cavity.
Many people feel anxious or scared about visiting the dentist for a procedure like a filling. Before the process actually begins, the dentist will use a local anesthetic to ensure that the patient feels no pain during the procedure.
What is the procedure like?
After the location is numb and the patient is feeling comfortable, the dentist will begin the procedure. It starts with drilling away the decayed and infected tooth material; then the area is sterilized and sealed with a filling. The fillings are set, and the procedure is complete. It may take a few hours for feeling to return to the numbed area.
With our tooth-colored fillings, the filling is color-matched to the tooth and becomes virtually invisible, protecting the quality of your smile.
