Fillings

One of the most common methods for repairing teeth with minor damage or decay is by applying a dental filling. This simple procedure is often used to treat cavities, which are small holes or voids in a person’s teeth that are caused by excessive exposure to harmful bacteria and plaque. If left untreated, food particles and bacteria can use cavities to access the inner portions of teeth and cause further damage. With this in mind, cavities should be treated as early as possible.

At Smile Dental Care, we pride ourselves in offering strong, secure fillings that are designed to repair a tooth and add to its overall strength. They are built to last, and they can fully withstand regular tasks like chewing hard foods. By visiting our practice for a dental filling, you can be sure that you are receiving a top-quality restoration.

The first step when applying a filling is to take out any decayed portions of the tooth and any existing filling material that is also present. Next, we carefully apply the filling material, thereby sealing off the tooth and protecting it from further damage. The filling substance is then hardened using a dental curing light, providing it with the strength and consistency of a natural tooth. To complete the process, we polish and shape the treated tooth so that it achieves the desired appearance. Afterwards, you will be able to continue with your regular brushing and flossing practices as normal.

If you are suffering from a cavity or another type of minor dental damage, please visit our practice to find out if a filling can fix the problem. You may call us at (773) 455-0885 to schedule an appointment.

Our Happy Patients

"When it comes to going to the dentist I'm not going to lie, I get anxiety. But as soon as I walked in everyone was so nice, to the girl who took my xrays, to Cyndi who cleaned my teeth, and to the dentist. They made me feel comfortable which was a big plus! Big thanks to Cyndi for being so patient with me, especially being the last person to be seen today. She explained my plan in detail to make sure I understood everything. Definitely would recommend this place!"
