Have any of your teeth been fractured, chipped or decayed? If so, you may need to visit our dentist and team for a dental filling in Chicago, Illinois. Each of these dental damages can create the opportunity for decay in your tooth’s surface enamel. If left untreated, this can extend into the internal structure of the tooth and possibly require more extensive treatments.
A dental filling is used to restore a tooth’s structure and function, which in turn ensures a return to good health. While there are amalgam and composite fillings available in the dentistry, we recommend having a filling made from composite materials. In addition, a filling at Smile 312 is often completed in just one visit! Once the decayed, damaged portion of your tooth has been removed and is cleaned of all possible traces of decay, Dr. Harvey J. Mahler will place the filling material to shape your tooth’s structure. After hardening, the result is a high-quality and tooth-colored lasting restoration.
We invite you to consider getting a dental filling if one or more of your teeth are decayed or damaged. For many, a dental filling is a successful and non-invasive procedure for restoring an optimal level of oral health and function. Call (312) 548-8500 or visit our office today to learn more!
