Gentle Dental Fillings in Elgin, IL

If you’ve experienced cavities, fractures, or trauma that left small holes or indents in your tooth, dental fillings are a great restoration option. Holes in the tooth can be difficult to clean efficiently, making them a breeding ground for the bacteria that leads to decay. If left unchecked, this bacteria can cause a litany of painful issues for you and your smile. Don’t wait! Call High Point Dentistry today to learn how we can help protect your smile with our gentle dental fillings.

How do I know if I need a dental filling?

Look for holes in the teeth, signs of a hole, or sharp edges in the tooth that shouldn’t be there. Some other things to check for are:

  • Sharp or throbbing pains in the tooth.
  • Pain and sensitivity triggered by touch or pressure, especially when eating or brushing.
  • A visible hole or dark mark that could signify a hole
  • Floss that frays when you floss certain teeth
  • A tooth that feels rough or jagged when you run your tongue across it.

Are dental fillings safe?

Yes! All the materials used in our dental filling have been reviewed and deemed safe by scientific bodies. We strive to offer only the highest quality materials and services to our patients so they can confidently have their smiles restored without fear of health repercussions.

What constitutes an emergency tooth filling?

If you have a filling come out or knocked out and you experience pain or difficulty eating, call us immediately! The longer you leave your tooth exposed, the more likely it is to become more damaged. We offer emergency dental services and aim to see all dental emergencies on the same day when possible.
