Composite Dental Fillings

Composite Dental Fillings

As one of the most common restorative treatments offered at Prairie Walk Dental, dental fillings repair cavities in your teeth created by dental decay. Our team use a composite filling material, which is tooth colored to better match your natural teeth. Call us today at (630) 968-5078 to learn more about dental fillings in Lisle, IL, and schedule an appointment with our dentist.

Traditionally, dental fillings have been made of silver amalgam. However, our dental office uses only composite, or tooth-colored, filling material. Our dentist and team have chosen to use composite filling materials in order to provide you with a more natural-looking result and to promote better long-term oral health. There are many benefits to composite fillings, including:

  • Material that bonds to your tooth to provide more support for the tooth’s structural integrity
  • Reduced risk of the treated tooth breaking or fracturing in the future
  • Insulation from temperature changes caused by foods and beverages
  • Better seals around the edges of the damaged area, increasing the tooth’s resistance to decay and leaks
  • The ability to correct cavities that are too small for amalgam fillings to repair
  • Fillings that can be repaired and replaced without being removed from the tooth
  • No mercury or other metals are used, making the filling safer

When you receive a composite dental filling, our dentist will carefully select a filling that matches your natural tooth color to give you a more beautiful and healthier-looking smile. Fillings can usually be placed in a single appointment.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can a sinus lift and implant be done at the same time?

Depending on your oral health and severity of your procedure, a dental implant might be able to be placed at the same time as a sinus augmentation. Sinus lift surgery has proven to increase your chances for successful implants that can last for years to come.

When you visit for your initial consultation, our team will be able to better understand your condition and determine whether or not these two procedures can be done during one appointment.

Does insurance cover my dental implants procedure?

Many dental insurance plans cover at least part of the cost of dental implants. We recommend contacting your insurance provider if you want to know the details of your coverage. Our insurance coordinator can help you obtain the full benefits of your insurance.

If you’re concerned about the cost of dental implants, financing plans may also be an option. These plans break down your treatment bill into convenient monthly payments, so you can afford dental implants without breaking the bank.
