Composite Fillings

Dentist in Aurora, IL

Harmful bacteria on the tooth can lead to decay. We will remove the decay and fill the area. Fillings can also be used to repair cracked or broken teeth and teeth that have been worn down. Tooth colored fillings are made of tooth colored, composite resin. This protects the tooth from infection and further decay.

When decay is left untreated, it can worsen, causing further infection and more severe pain. The infected tooth may eventually require a root canal or extraction.

The process for placing a composite resin dental filling is as follows:

  • The tooth is numbed so your are comfortable.
  • The infected part of the tooth is gently removed.
  • The composite resin is placed in layers over the opening.
  • A special light is used to harden each layer of composite resin material.
  • After the tooth is filled, the composite resin is shaped to resemble a real tooth.

At Artistic Family Dental, we can help you decide whether composite resin fillings are right for you. Composite resin does not only restores your teeth but also gives a natural-look.

You can decrease your risk of cavities and other dental diseases by:

  • Brushing your teeth twice a day
  • Flossing daily
  • Keeping up with regular professional cleanings
  • Avoid eating or drinking acidic or sugary foods and beverages
