What You Need to Know About Fillings

Dentist Wheeling ILTaking care of your teeth and gums should always be a top priority because if you do not adequately care for your mouth, it can lead to more severe problems like gum disease and other infections. Discover everything you need to know about dental fillings below.

Purpose- Once you have gotten a cavity, some steps will be taken to seal off the opening to your tooth where the decay has been removed. This process is better known as a dental filling. If this area is not sealed correctly, then more bacteria can get into the crack of your tooth causing even more decay.

Durable- When it comes to fillings, you can depend on the durability. You do not have to worry about avoiding certain foods because you have a filling. After a couple years, you should consider getting a crown because the hole can get bigger.

Natural-Looking-  We use a composite material that is the same color as your tooth. You can smile for photos and not worry about your filling being noticeable.
