For patients who need dental fillings near Lincoln Park, IL, our practice is proud to offer a full range of general and family dentistry services. At Dente Complete Dentistry, we use only the highest quality, durable white fillings backed by a two-year guarantee. This modern alternative to the old silver fillings is crafted to match your own natural tooth color. Once completed, your new filling is virtually undetectable from the rest of your natural teeth.
Cavities are the number one reason for tooth pain in most patients who come to our office for dental fillings. Cavities are the result of bacteria that erode the tooth’s protective enamel and dentin. Plaque and tartar buildup on the surface of teeth can also destroy the enamel and necessary minerals that make up a healthy tooth. Once this has occurred, the cavity must be treated quickly in order to avoid much more serious problems. For example, a cavity that has passed a certain point of decay can only be treated with a root canal or extraction.
Dr. Couret, our experienced dentist, will first remove the decayed tooth material, clean the affected area, and then fill the cavity with our superior grade filling material. By restoring the tooth and closing off areas where bacteria can enter, a dental filling helps prevent further tooth decay.
Brushing, flossing, and a good routine of regular dental cleanings can help prevent cavities and the need for dental fillings. The excess sugar in beverages like soda can feed bacteria that remains on your teeth and gums even after brushing, flossing, and rinsing. In addition, highly acidic or high citrus foods like orange juice can break down the protective enamel on your teeth, giving a place for bacteria to thrive.
Finally, some people are prone to cavities regardless of dental hygiene habits and diets. For example, a mouth with crowded teeth often has points of friction between the teeth that lead to a breakdown of a tooth’s minerals and enamel. If you are someone who is prone to cavities despite your rigorous dental regimen, you may want to consider straightening your teeth with Invisalign.
