Dr. Moon uses dental fillings to repair teeth that are affected by decay, cracks, fractures, and so forth. In just one dental appointment, the decayed or affected portion of the tooth will be removed, cleaned, and filled. Our cosmetic or composite fillings can be closely matched to the color of existing teeth. There are further options aesthetically suited for use in the front teeth or the more visible areas of the teeth. Please call our dental office today to schedule an appointment with our skilled dentists if you need a dental filling in Palatine, Illinois.
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!
