Be More Confident in Your Smile
Dental fillings have come a long way in the last several years. Mercury fillings, which were once the standard for preserving a tooth with a cavity, have given way to tooth colored fillings. Patients prefer that their fillings match the color of their teeth as closely as possible to make their dental work less obvious to others. Additionally, mercury fillings are not always safe. When mercury from the filling breaks down over the years, it can cause further damage in the patient’s teeth and mouth.
Oak Brook Tooth Colored Fillings
Oak Brook dentist, Dr. Haque provides tooth-colored fillings using special strong, white filling composite material, and for large fillings may use an inlay or onlay.
Why Dr. Haque Prefers Tooth Colored Fillings
While your reasons for wanting a clear filling may be only cosmetic, Dr. Haque chooses this method because it performs much better when it comes to preserving the structure of the tooth. With clear fillings, Dr. Haque can use dental sealants at the same time. This allows him to fill and seal your tooth in one appointment, which is essential to guard against further decay of the tooth.
Filling a Cavity is the Best Way to Prevent Future Tooth Loss
At Oak Brook Smiles, we would much rather see a patient have a cavity filled than lose his or her tooth to decay. That is why making an appointment with Dr. Haque at the first sign of tooth decay is so important. Because he knows how important your smile is to you, he doesn’t fill your tooth until the color of the filling material is just right. Tooth colored fillings appear so natural that even you may forget that you have a cavity. A clear filling is a fast and simple way to improve your dental health and your smile.
