Harmful bacteria on teeth can lead to decay. Untreated decay may cause further complications, such as pain or infection. Composite fillings are a safe, effective solution to help preserve your teeth.
Composite fillings are made of a tooth-colored, composite resin. This resin is strong, durable, and aesthetic. Our Lombard dentists gently remove decayed tissue and place your filling to help prevent further damage.
Amalgam is a dental filling material that is a mixture of mercury and metal. Mercury binds to the metals providing a strong, hard, and durable filling. It is used to repair tooth structure that has been destroyed by decay. Compared to other restorative materials, amalgam is lower in cost and tends to be more durable.
We can help you decide which fillings are right for you. To request an appointment, contact Sanders Family Dental.
