White fillings are designed to treat:

Dental Joliet IL. Even with good oral hygiene, many will experience the need for a filling to seal against decay or repair a damaged tooth.

  • Cavities
  • Chips
  • Cracks, and
  • Protect roots in cases where the gums have receded

Being easy to sculpt, white fillings are even used to close gaps and change the length and shape of existing teeth. We can color-match white fillings (also known as composite fillings) to camouflage with your existing tooth enamel.

No Drilling Option

New developments in dentistry mean that patients now have access to pain-free, no-drill, and no-injection options that solve existing tooth decay. Traditionally, fillings require patients to undergo local anesthetic injections to numb the area before the decay can be drilled out and the cavity filled. Now, this revolutionary new technique can treat patients with early-stage decay painlessly and can be completed in as little as 20 minutes.

Ultimately, the best dental filling is no dental filling. Prevention is the best medicine. You can dramatically decrease your risk of cavities and other dental diseases simply by:

  • brushing your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste
  • flossing daily
  • eating a balanced diet
  • visiting the dentist regularly.
