Dental fillings are the solution to prevent the ongoing decay of any tooth which may be slightly damaged due to cavities, which have been caused by tartar, plaque or lack of proper dental hygiene.
Cavities form small holes in the teeth. If left untreated, these holes allow food particles and harmful bacteria to reach inside the tooth causing irreparable damage. Ideally, cavities should be treated at the earliest stage to ensure the damage does not progress.
We provide strong fillings made of materials that match your natural tooth color. Once your tooth is restored, you will be able to chew normally and smile proudly.
Before placing a filling, we will thoroughly clean the decayed portion of the tooth, and any previous filling material will be carefully removed.
The void is then sealed off with new filling material to stop any further damage to the tooth. A dental curing light is used to harden the filling which gives it stability and strength. To ensure that your natural smile is not affected, the tooth is polished and shaped. There is no special care needed after this procedure, and you only need to brush and floss regularly.
This process of receiving a filling is simple and helps you regain your smile. For more information, call (708) 232-0403 to schedule an appointment.
