We are proud to offer tooth-colored dental fillings in Park Ridge for our patients. A tooth-colored composite filling is a safer, healthier, and more attractive alternative to silver “amalgam” fillings which have been used for many years. Amalgam fillings are made from various materials, one of which being mercury (a toxic, liquid metal). Our tooth-colored fillings are made using safe, healthy materials, no toxic metals, or any other ingredients. This makes our dental fillings a healthier option for patients that looks more attractive as well.
As mentioned above, traditional fillings that contain mercury can lead to health issues. Mercury is a toxic metal that is no longer used in various products such as thermometers due to safety risks. We are dedicated to providing the healthiest treatment options for our patients and only recommend composite resin filling.
When it comes to receiving a dental filling, the process is quite simple. First, your dentist will clean and prepare the tooth, removing minor parts of enamel for filling placement. Next, your dentist will apply the composite material to the tooth to sculpt and shape it properly. Finally, your filling will be cured/hardened.
