White Fillings

We Tackle Cavities With White Fillings

Everyone gets a cavity from time to time. One of the reasons your twice-yearly appointment with us is so essential is it is where we will catch them. Even with correct brushing and flossing, you can develop a cavity. Fortunately, dental science has evolved to the point where receiving a white filling is routine business. Our Oakbrook Terrace, IL practice has years of experience providing them to our patients. We are compassionate and wholly focused on the oral health of our patients. Call us today to schedule an appointment.

How We Place a White Filling

Placing a filling is not a complicated or painful procedure, so do not be afraid. We have plenty of experience handling cavities. We understand how to set our patients’ minds at ease before we begin filling the cavity. First, we explain the situation – what tooth the cavity is on, how many there are, and what we need to do. Then, we numb the tooth or teeth. Once we’ve dulled the impacted teeth, we used an air abrasion instrument, laser, or drill to remove the decayed area from the tooth. After we remove the diseased pulp, we test the site to make sure we removed everything and thoroughly clean the area. Finally, we add the white filling. They are tooth-colored, and people will not notice them when you smile.

Why We Opt to Install White Fillings Over Others

We use white fillings for several reasons: aesthetics, bonding, and versatility. Because they are white, they will look better on your teeth and avoid uncomfortable or embarrassing feelings. But there are practical reasons for opting for a composite resin filling. For example, they bond to the surface of your teeth much better, and we can use them for chipped and worn teeth.

Client Testimonials

Gina H.

I have over 15 years experience in clinical dentistry and dental laboratory management. I can honestly say that Dr. Arredondo gives the best, most honest care that I have ever received. He does great work, its pain free, the office is clean, staff is professional. My parents also go here and they really love him as well. I've worked for a lot of Dentists who, in my opinion, treatment plan extra services just to bill extra production. That IS NOT the case at this office. They will take care of your needs and nothing more/nothing less. Rest assured. As a patient of this office for upwards of 7 years... I highly recommend Smile Big Dental Specialists.

My boyfriend and I visited their new location at 1S376 Summit Ave in Oak Brook Terrace, IL and absolutely adored the place. The location was very clean and updated and the staff was friendly as well as informative! I hadn't been to the dentist in a while so I'm outdated on technology but it was amazing to see the newer instruments used for the X-rays and cleanings! My hygienist David was very gentle, kind and answered everything I had questions about. The doctor came in later after my cleaning and went over everything again and informed me on how to properly care for the issues I was having...
