If you or a family member need a cavity filling, you can trust your smile to your caring Waukegan dentists.(847) 360-3045
While prevention is the best treatment of all, sometimes even the most diligent patients develop cavities. That is why the team here at Holy Family Dental Clinic offers affordable dental fillings that fit your family’s budget and needs. We are proud to provide our patients with the highest standards of dental care and invite you to make our office your family’s dental home!
A cavity may seem like a small problem. However, without treatment, it can become a much greater concern. A severe cavity can lead to a dental infection, resulting in painful swelling that can only be relieved with a root canal procedure. If you are living with tooth decay, it is important to schedule an appointment with our Waukegan dental team as soon as possible.
A dental filling is a safe, comfortable, and simple procedure. To place a filling, our dentist removes the decayed portion of your tooth and fill it with a durable filling material. The team at Holy Family Dental Clinic offers two types of fillings, depending on your treatment needs: amalgam fillings and composite fillings.
Amalgam fillings are the silver-colored fillings most often seen in people’s teeth. They are made from metals such as tin, copper, silver, and mercury. The special combinations of metals give amalgam their renowned strength and durability. Most commonly, this type of fillings is used on the teeth where the chewing occurs towards the back of the mouth. Amalgam fillings typically last 10-15 years, which is much better compared to the 5-7 years that composite fillings last.
Composite fillings are a more aesthetically pleasing way to treat a cavity, chipped or broken teeth, and to decrease the gap between the teeth. Made from natural-looking composite resin, this type of filling looks like your surrounding tooth for a seamless restoration. Our dentists recommend composite fillings for the visible teeth (such as the front teeth) to keep your smile looking natural and white.
