Cavities, cracks, or fractures in a tooth can be painful, Dr. Morgan can help. After we remove the decay or repair the damage, we’re often able to rebuild your tooth’s structure with a tooth-colored filling made of a biocompatible, metal-free, composite resin. Composite dental fillings restore a tooth’s strength, prevent further damage, and blend in seamlessly with your smile. Thanks to our state-of-the-art technology and Dr. Morgan’s European training and techniques, the process of getting a filling is painless and stress-free. To find out if your tooth can be restored with a durable composite filling, request to schedule an appointment with Dentistry by Design online or by phone at 630-325-2525.
Dr. Morgan will begin the procedure by numbing your tooth and the surrounding area with a local anesthetic. He will carefully and gently remove any decay. He will then clean, prime, and fill the space with a strong, aesthetic composite resin that’s matched to the color of your teeth. Using a curing light, they’ll harden the material before making final adjustments for the optimal fit and a comfortable bite. Lastly, the filling will be polished for a completely natural look. No one will be able to tell you’ve had a filling, and your tooth will function just as it did before you developed a cavity or fracture. With proper oral hygiene, tooth-colored fillings can last for many years.
