1. Applying local anaesthesia is the first step.
Once the anaesthesia is applied, the area where it has been placed will be completely numb and the patient will not feel any pain during the treatment.
2. Removal of the decayed tissue.
The decay is removed with specialised tools. The tooth is then cleaned without leaving any traces of the disease and the resulting cavity is prepared.
3. Placement of the filling
– The enamel part is prepared with a blue acid gel.
– The adhesive is placed between the tooth and the composite filling.
– Layer the composite filling, compacting it very well so that no bacteria can enter and it remains solid. All layers have to be hardened by applying light for about 20 seconds.
– Finally, the bite is adjusted until the patient feels that he/she bites the same as before.
Now that the material of the piece is hardened, the filling is polished to make it smooth, carrying out bite tests. The result will be perfect both aesthetically and functionally.
