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:
Closing Space between Two Teeth
Cracked or Broken 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.

Porcelain crowns are made to match the shape, size, and color or your teeth, giving you a natural, long-lasting beautiful smile. Reasons for getting crowns include:
Crowns in Deerfield IL
Broken or Fractured Teeth
Tooth Has a Root Canal
A crown procedure usually requires two appointments. Your first appointment will include taking several highly accurate molds (or impressions) that will be used to create your custom crown. A mold will also be used to create a temporary crown, which will stay on your tooth for approximately two weeks until your new crown is fabricated by a dental laboratory. While the tooth is numb, the dentist will prepare the tooth by removing any decay and shaping the surface to properly fit the crown. Once these details are accomplished, your temporary crown will be placed with temporary cement and your bite will be checked to ensure you are biting properly.
At your second appointment, your temporary crown will be removed, the tooth will be cleaned, and your new crown will be carefully placed to ensure the spacing and bite are accurate. You will be given care instructions and encouraged to have regular dental visits to check your new crown.
Porcelain Veneers Deerfield IL
Getting veneers usually requires two visits to complete the process, with little or no anesthesia required during the procedure. Porcelain veneers resolve a variety of cosmetic issues, including:
Severely Discolored or Stained Teeth
Teeth That Are Too Small or Large
Unwanted or Uneven Spaces
Worn or Chipped Teeth
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.
