Total Dental Care From X-Ray to Fillings
Do you need Deerfield dental services? Want to know more about composite fillings in Deerfield IL? A composite (tooth-colored) filling is used to repair a tooth that is affected by tooth decay, cracks, fractures, etc. The decayed or affected portion of the tooth will be removed and then filled with a composite filling. There are many types of filling materials available, each with their own advantages and disadvantages. We’ll work with you to discuss the best options for restoring your teeth. Composite fillings, along with silver amalgam fillings, are the most widely used today. Because composite fillings are tooth colored, they can be closely matched to the color of existing teeth, and are more aesthetically suited for use in front teeth or more visible areas of the mouth. As with most dental restorations, composite fillings are not permanent and may someday have to be replaced. Reasons for composite fillings include:
- Chipped Teeth
- Closing Space between Two Teeth
- Cracked or Broken Teeth
- Decayed Teeth
- Worn Teeth
Our composite fillings in Deerfield IL are usually placed in one appointment. While the tooth is numb, your dentist will remove decay as needed. The space will then be thoroughly cleaned and carefully prepared before the new filling is placed. If the decay was near the nerve of the tooth, a special medication will be applied for added protection. The composite filling will then be precisely placed, shaped, and polished, restoring your tooth to its original shape and function. It is normal to experience sensitivity to hot and cold when composite fillings are first placed, however this will subside shortly after your tooth acclimates to the new filling. You will be given care instructions at the conclusion of your treatment. Good oral hygiene practices, eating habits, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new fillings.
Other dental services we provide include:
- Digital X-Rays
- Dental Cleaning
- Bad Breath Care
Make Your Smile Shine with Crowns and Veneers in Deerfield IL
With our porcelain crowns, veneers, and composite fillings you'll have a smile that stands out in a crowd. At Great Smile Deerfield in Deerfield, Illinois, our services include porcelain crowns (or caps). These restore the tooth surface to its original shape and size. Our crowns in Deerfield IL protect and strengthen tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other kinds of restorations. Veneers are very thin pieces of durable, tooth-shaped porcelain that are custom made (for shape and color) by a professional dental laboratory. They are bonded onto the front of teeth to create a beautiful and attractive smile. Our veneers in Deerfield IL can completely reshape your teeth and smile. They can often be alternatives to crowns and the ideal solution in treating many dental conditions. As with most dental restorations, veneers are not permanent and may someday need replacement.

The teeth are prepared by lightly buffing and shaping the surface to allow for the thickness of the veneer. A mold or impression of the teeth is taken and a shade will then be chosen by you and the dentist. On the second visit, the teeth will be cleansed with special liquids to achieve a durable bond. Bonding cement is then placed between the tooth and veneer and a special light beam is used to harden and set the bond. You will receive care instructions for veneers. Proper brushing, flossing, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new veneers in Deerfield IL.
