Fillings & Bonding in St. Charles, IL

A composite filling is the restoration procedure of choice for treating a tooth with tooth decay. A composite is a tooth-colored filling that is made of ceramic and plastic compounds. These fillings mimic the appearance of natural teeth and are preferred amongst many patients and dental professionals. We offer tooth-colored fillings in St. Charles, IL that look natural in your mouth and can replace the metallic look of silver fillings. The unique mixture of materials used in composite fillings provides supreme bonding, requires less preparation, and preserves tooth structure.

Tooth-colored bonding material can be used to restore broken, chipped, or stained teeth. The resin material reshapes the tooth and closes spaces between teeth created by gaps or chips in the tooth enamel. Each bonded area is carefully matched so that it blends in with the surrounding enamel. Bonding may also be placed over areas of gum recession to prevent severe sensitivity in those areas.

We are using primarily Waterlase Dental Laser to perform tooth decay excavation which is far more superior and precised to conventional drilling. Include that since it doesn't produce heat and vibration there is rarely a need for general anesthesia. In the process of excavation laser also disinfects the area reassuring clean and prepared area for the composite. We are trying to practice a minimally invasive dentistry and doing everything we can to conserve natural tooth structure.
