No Mercury! No
Metals! No Kidding!
White Dental Fillings Romeoville
For years, the silver-mercury amalgam was the standard filling
material used in dental practices, and many practices still use it.
While they are a reasonable restoration, amalgams have certain
shortcomings. Metal does not bond well to teeth, so decay can and
does eventually leak into the tooth. But the biggest reason many of
our patients are choosing the white bonded fillings has to do with
the way they look. Many people just don’t want an ugly black plug in
their teeth. We offer modern, state-of-the-art restorations that are

The Laser Scanner
Finds Cavities Years Earlier
Have you ever had a dentist find a cavity and place a large filling,
and wondered why the filling is so large if the cavity wasn’t there
just six months before? The cavity was there six months before – it
just wasn’t big enough to show on X-rays, and it wasn’t visible to
the dentist yet. The laser scanner can find cavities years earlier,
when the small cavity can be removed and repaired with a small
invisible bonded filling. Sometimes patients complain of tooth
sensitivity, or mild to severe pain, yet X-rays and examination
cannot pinpoint the source. The laser scanner can detect previously
undetected decay and, once identified, allow us to remove the
discomfort and leave you with a healthy smile.

the way it was meant to be – beautiful!
