Dental Fillings

Dental fillings are a type of dental restoration that aims to bring back the original state, appearance, and function of a decayed or fractured tooth. This treatment is also done to prevent further damage to the tooth.

The process includes cleaning and removing the decayed or fractured part and then filling the area with a composite material. By enclosing the area, bacteria are prevented from entering, thus preventing further tooth decay.

There are different types of dental fillings available. Here’s a brief description of each to help you and your dentist decide which suits you best.

Tooth-colored composite fillings, also known as white fillings, are the most common fillings used today. This is because of their versatility. They require less drilling, and they closely match the color of your natural tooth.

The Process

The first thing the dentist will do is check the decayed or fractured tooth. A local anesthetic will be applied to numb the surrounding area of the tooth. Once the area is numb, the tooth will be cleaned, and any decay or debris will be removed. The filling material will then be applied directly on the tooth surface/cavity. The tooth will then be polished and shaped to make it look and feel natural in your mouth.

If you have cavities, you need dental fillings as soon as possible. Call our office at (708) 863-2000 to set an appointment.
