AZ Dental‘s San Jose, California dental office understands just how much your oral health may mean to you. After all, they help you eat, speak and smile. That’s why it’s so important to treat a cavity as soon as possible. We offer composite dental fillings. Here’s how the process of a dental filling generally goes:

We will first take some X-rays and examine the state of the tooth. If there is indeed a cavity, we will schedule an appointment for a filling.

During the filling procedure, we will first apply anesthetic to the area. Once your mouth is comfortably numb, we will remove any tooth decay to prepare for the filling.

A composite-resin filling is created from a special dental-grade plastic which can be perfectly shaded to match the adjacent tooth enamel. Once this filling has been applied and shaped to match the surrounding tooth enamel, Dr. Ravi Aulakh will use a special ultraviolet light to harden it and ensure a strong bond.

If you live in the San Jose, California area and believe that a cavity has formed on one of your teeth, please do not delay in calling 408-247-5500 to have it treated and repaired at our office.
