Yes, drilling is required with composite fillings because we first need to remove the decayed portion of the tooth. However, there's nothing to worry about because we will numb the tooth using a strong local anesthetic that prevents you from experiencing pain.
Pain-Free Dental Fillings in Chagrin Falls, OH
The goal of placing a composite tooth filling is to restore a tooth to full health and comfortable function. Removing the decay prevents it from spreading, and the filling strengthens the tooth to compensate for the minimal tooth structure we remove.
