What to Expect with Composite Fillings
In most cases, composite fillings are placed in one appointment. While the tooth is numb, Dr. Denison will remove the decay. The space will then be thoroughly cleaned and carefully prepared before the filling is placed. The composite filling is precisely placed, shaped, and polished, restoring your tooth to its original shape and function. It is normal to experience sensitivity to hot and cold when composite fillings are first placed, however this will subside shortly after your tooth acclimates to the new filling.
