When a tooth suffers minor damage or decay, we can restore your smile with a dental filling. Keep your smile strong and healthy with Apollo Dental Clinic!(847) 855-7000
In cases of minor dental damage, it’s important to receive treatment as quickly as possible so that the damage doesn’t worsen. At Apollo Dental Clinic, we offer both silver (amalgam) and tooth-colored (composite) fillings. We will work with you to determine which is best for your case and to return your tooth’s health, strength and appearance.
Traditional metal fillings are made from dental amalgam. This material is a combination of metals, including silver, mercury, tin and copper, making them very strong. Due to their strength and durability, we may recommend this type of filling for damage on the back teeth. They harden quickly and can withstand the pressures of biting and chewing.
Tooth-colored or white fillings are made from a composite resin. This is a blend of plastic and glass-ceramics. There is no metal or mercury used, and they are custom mixed to match your tooth color. They bond to the damaged tooth for a strong, long-lasting, and functional restoration.
We are committed to the comfort of our patients. When placing a dental filling, we will use local anesthesia to ensure the process is comfortable. If you are concerned, please let us know.
