Beautiful Teeth with White Fillings

Repairs to teeth were once done with metal fillings leaving teeth looking dull and unattractive. White fillings are now used to keep the natural, white look of your teeth.

Dr. Dooley is a Chicago cosmetic dentist who uses porcelain for fillings. Porcelain is a strong, long lasting material that looks like your natural teeth. Porcelain can be made in the shape and color of your existing teeth. This material makes sure your dental work doesn’t look obvious.

White fillings are done in the same way as the old metal fillings. This procedure takes two office visits to complete.

During the first visit, all of the tooth decay is removed. Then, the tooth is prepared for the white filling to be attached. Next, a mold of your tooth will be made and sent to a dental lab where the filling is created. Dr. Dooley will fill your cavity with a temporary filling to stop any discomfort the cavity may cause.

At your second visit, the porcelain filling made at the dental lab will be sent to Dr. Dooley and he will then permanently place it in your tooth.

If you have any questions about white fillings, please contact our cosmetic dentistry office serving the Chicago area. We will be happy to help you with any cosmetic dentistry procedure.
