What are the steps of dental filling?
After local anaesthesia, the unneeded, decayed parts of the tooth are removed.
Depending on the depth of the prepared cavity the teeth are relined. These surfaces are etched with acid for a short time, then after applying a thin layer of adhesive plastic, the filling is built up layer by layer.
These layers are exposed to UV light, which hardens the filling material. The surface of the fillings is modified by a bur until it is comfortable. Then the surface is polished.
