Dental fillings in Chicago, Illinois, are one of the most common restorative treatments in dental care. Dr. Mollie K. Rojas uses a composite resin to match the filling to your natural tooth color to help you have a more uniform smile. To learn more about this process or schedule a visit with our dentist at Shoreline Dental Chicago, give us a call today at (312) 266-9487.
Minor or moderate tooth decay that results in a cavity can be treated with a dental filling. A dental filling can restore a tooth’s structure and function and stop the decay from spreading farther in the tooth. A filling can also be used to repair minor fractures or chips in a tooth to prevent food or bacteria from getting trapped in the fractured areas and restore the beauty and health of your smile.
Our dentist and team can place a dental filling in just one appointment. We will first remove all decayed and damaged portions of the tooth to prevent the spread of decay. After cleaning the tooth to remove any remaining bacteria or decay, we will fill the area with a special dental material that will restore your tooth’s shape and strength. The filling will then be hardened so that you can use the filling for normal oral function.
If your tooth has minor damage or is causing you any discomfort, call to visit with our team and see if a dental filling might be what you need.
