Good dental health is crucial to your overall health. Dr. Gaff provides knowledgeable, quality dental care to patients in Jacksonville, St. Augustine and surrounding Florida cities.
What is a Filling in Jacksonville, FL?
To treat cavities, Dr. Gaff will remove the decay from your tooth and then fill the area where tooth decay was present. Fillings can also be used to repair cracked, broken, or worn teeth.
A filling is made of composite resins, a durable plastic, that is the color of teeth, giving patients a natural look.
Besides being invisible, composite fillings quickly bond to your natural teeth to protect and increase the overall strength of the tooth being restored. This creates a strong seal to your tooth.
How is a Filling Performed in Jacksonville, FL?
Dr. Gaff will first numb the area around the tooth to be treated with a local anesthetic. Next, he will use a drill instrument to remove the decayed area. He will test the area to make sure all the decay has been removed and once completed he will clean your tooth to prepare it for the filling. After the filling is in, Dr. Gaff will trim off any excess material and polish it.
