A cavity is a small hole or void that develops on a tooth’s surface because of exposure to bacteria, acids and plaque. If you have a cavity, it is important to treat it as soon as possible. Left untreated, a cavity will continue to grow over time.
The natural-looking fillings we provide at Waukegan Family Dental are the highest quality, and unlike traditional amalgam fillings, our tooth-colored fillings are safe, and they do not release any harmful toxins into the body. Applying a tooth-colored dental filling is a very simple process. We will start by cleaning the tooth and removing any decay and existing filling material.
Next, we will apply the filling substance, making sure to seal off the structure. The filling material will be given an opportunity to dry so that it can provide strength and integrity for the tooth. Finally, we will polish and shape the filling so that it achieves a natural appearance. Once complete, the tooth will look natural and function perfectly.
