Spearheaded by our experienced dentist, Dr. Vineet Sharma, we provide a range of dental services, including the versatile and often essential treatment of dental fillings.

What Are Dental Fillings?

A dental filling is a treatment modality designed to restore the integrity and function of a tooth damaged by decay or trauma. By filling the tooth, we can stop the decay from progressing, prevent further damage, and restore the tooth’s form and function. Dental fillings are crafted from various materials, including composite resin, amalgam, gold, or porcelain, each offering unique benefits. At Magical Smiles, our emphasis is on delivering a solution that not only takes care of the health aspect but also ensures a natural, confident smile.

Why Dental Fillings Are Necessary

The primary reason for a dental filling is to treat cavities, which are small holes in the teeth caused by tooth decay. When plaque builds up on the tooth surface, the bacteria produce acids that can erode tooth enamel, leading to cavities.

Other reasons for dental fillings include:

  1. Repairing Damaged Teeth: Teeth that have been chipped, broken, or worn down from nail-biting or teeth grinding may be repaired with dental fillings.
  2. Replacing Old, Failed Fillings: Over time, dental fillings can break down or fall out, needing a replacement to maintain oral health.

The Dental Filling Proceess

The process of placing a dental filling usually takes one appointment at our office. After numbing the area, Dr. Sharma will remove the decayed tooth material, clean the affected area, and then fill the cleaned-out cavity with a filling material of your choice.

Once the filling is in place, it’s polished and shaped to match the rest of the tooth, ensuring a natural feel and appearance. The result is a healthy tooth, free from decay, and a fully restored, functional, and aesthetic smile.

At Magical Smiles, we believe that quality dental care should be affordable and accessible to all. Therefore, we work with a range of insurance providers and offer flexible payment options for those without insurance coverage.

I came for an emergency appointment and liked this practice so much that I am making them my regular dental practice. Everyone was very friendly and professional. Dr Sharma did a great job treating my issue and it was easy and painless! I will be recommending this practice to everyone.

The staff is genuinely friendly. Nicole, with whom I had first contact when I made my appointment, and Heather, the dental assistant were both extremely welcoming. Dr. Sharma is so kind and attentive. He communicated with me during the proceedure and put me at ease. He was also patient when numbing my mouth; making sure that I was comfortable before he continued. He called me after my visit to check and find out if I had any questions. When I called the office with a minor concern days after my visit, I received a prompt reply. I am so grateful for the doctor and his staff. I recommend his practice for everyone.

I recently has my four wisdom teeth removed by Dr. Sharma. I cannot say enough good things about him and his staff. I was really nervous but he definitely put me at ease and it was such a smooth experience. His whole staff is so nice, they will definitely take care of you here.

Can not express the amount of CARE and SYMPATHY Dr. Puri gave me without ever seeing me before. I suffered for 8 day under a different dentist. She was BOOKED but said to me, "I can not let someone suffer in pain like you are". I was like a 5 year old with tears and fears. She brushed my head and placed ice on my forehead. Communicated all steps before hand. THAT IS WHAT WE NEED IN A DENTIST. 18 MILLION STARS

My wife and I are here in Illinois visiting old friends. Been having an issue with my teeth and gums. I knew of the problem but was unable to get it taken care of before leaving home in New Mexico. My problem worsened. A friend recommended Dr. Jyoti Puri. I was able to get in due to a cancellation. Staff was great in helping me get my records from New Mexico. Everyone from start to finish was exceptional. My dental issue was worse than I thought. Dr. Puri explained clearly in terms I could understand and presented me with some options. Her care and skills made my procedure as painless as possible. Her surgical assistants Michelle and Griselda also were great with x rays and assisting in the procedure. 5 STARS PLUS! HIGHLY RECCOMMEND
