Tooth Colored Fillings SERVICES

Tooth-Colored Fillings

We’ve all probably had a filling or two in our lifetime. (Perhaps some of us have had more than just one or two.) Fillings are great for dealing with cavities and tooth decay, though new advances in dental composites and resins have created a step forward from traditional metal fillings of the past. We offer tooth-colored fillings at our Issaquah and Sammamish area cosmetic dentistry office in order to provide a less visible way to fill cavities, which means a better looking smile and better dental health overall.

What are Tooth-Colored Fillings?

Tooth-colored fillings are also referred to as white fillings or composite fillings. They are made from special dental resins which are sturdy and blend in seamlessly with your tooth when in place.

Are Tooth-Colored Fillings Superior to Metal Dental Fillings?

In many ways, yes. There’s the obvious cosmetic and aesthetic benefits of tooth-colored fillings over metal fillings. There are also several dental health benefits as well.

For one, less health tooth structure is removed when placing tooth-colored fillings compared to metal fillings. In addition, metal fillings can expand or contract a bit in extremely hot temperatures and cold temperatures. Tooth-colored fillings are not affected by shifts in temperature. Most importantly, though, some metal fillings used mercury as part of their composition. For these reasons, some patients have opted to have their metal fillings replaced with tooth-colored fillings.

How are Tooth-Colored Fillings Placed?

Tooth-colored fillings are generally placed in the same way as traditional metal fillings. The first step with be to thoroughly clean the tooth with a cavity. After that, the tooth is prepped for the filling by having the decayed portion removed. After than, the composite material is set into the tooth and exposed to a special light in order to dry and harden the tooth-colored filling.

Are Tooth-Colored Fillings Right for Me?

The best way to find out if tooth-colored fillings are right for you is to visit our Sacramento area cosmetic dentistry office for a consultation with at First Impressions Dental Care. During your consultation, our experienced Issaquah dentists and staff will determine if tooth-colored fillings or another cosmetic dentistry option such as dental crowns will be best to address your needs.
