Dental fillings at Island Dental can be made with a number of different substances, and some of the materials used are silver amalgam, gold, porcelain, composite resin, and plastic. We use these substances to fill your teeth and give them the strength they need to heal and come back stronger than ever.
The process involved in placing a dental filling first begins with your dentist numbing the tooth and surrounding area with a local anesthetic. Then, he will use a drill or laser to remove the decay from your tooth. Once the decay is eliminated, he will check the tooth to make sure there is no further sign of harmful substances. Once the tooth is completely cleaned and free of decay, infection, and bacteria, your dentist will fill the tooth, layer-by-layer, with a dental filling. Once the tooth is full, he will trim and shape the top of the filling to make it fit perfectly with your bite.
