A filling is a restorative measure taken to treat a chipped or broken tooth, or a tooth with a hole caused by decay. Generally, a dentist will use a local anaesthetic to ensure your treatment is pain-free. Any decay is then removed from the tooth to ensure the area is clean and free from decay before the tooth is built back up to a functional shape and size using a tooth coloured filling material. The same material can repair a chipped or broken tooth, even if there is no original decay present.
Sensitivity and pain can be present in the tooth. Can be sensitive for longer than 1 week after the filling has been placed, as it can take a while to settle.
