How is a filling performed?‎

Dentist begins with cleaning the place where the fillings will be placed, especially in case of teeth ‎decay. In case of root canal problems, dentist may need to treat the problem first. Then the dentist ‎prepares the fillings and molds them to match the shape of the surrounding tooth. Finally, he ‎exposes the filling to UV rays to harden it.‎
In case the filling used for the front teeth, dentist give the composite a final polish to ensure it has ‎that clean white look and fits with the rest of your teeth.
