Cavities sure can leave a dent in your teeth. At The Toothery, we treat our patients with care as we remove cavities and restore your teeth’s health. As part of our dental filling treatment, we provide tooth-colored fillings to keep your smile looking great. For patients with amalgam fillings, Dr. Jessica Bertoglio also removes and replaces those fillings with new composite fillings. For more information on dental fillings in Hoffman Estates, Illinois, or to schedule your appointment with our gentle and experienced dentist, please contact our office at 847-893-9099.
A dental filling is a restoration used to repair minor to moderate tooth damage. We may recommend a filling if your tooth has been damaged by tooth decay (for example, if your tooth has a cavity), or if your tooth suffers from minor fracturing or chipping. The dental filling is used to restore the tooth to its original structure and function and to return your smile to good health. There are two main types of dental fillings available: amalgam fillings and composite fillings.
The process for placing a filling requires just one comfortable visit to our office. Our dentist will first remove the decayed and damaged portion of your tooth, and then clean the tooth to remove all traces of decay. We then fill the tooth with the filling material and shape it to match your tooth’s shape. Finally, the filling is hardened for a lasting restoration.
If your tooth is decayed or damaged, a dental filling may be a great choice for restoring your oral health and function. We invite you to call or visit us today to learn more about dental fillings and to schedule your next appointment with our team. We look forward to caring for your smile!
