We provide modern and tooth-colored composite fillings, a healthy replacement for traditional fillings. Composite fillings are aesthetically pleasing and look more natural than any other type of fillings. Our dental team in Shoreline and Milton, WA is highly experienced in providing the best results with composite fillings and take all the necessary precautions while performing the filling procedure.
A composite (tooth colored) filling is a mixture of plastic and powered glass that is used to repair a decayed, cracked or fractured tooth. The affected portion of your tooth is first removed and thoroughly cleaned and then filled with a composite filling to restore it to its original form and function.
Composite fillings are required to repair:
As composite fillings are tooth-colored, they match with the color of your existing teeth and are more suitable to be used in your front teeth or visible areas of your teeth. They are very durable, and can last for years, giving you a long lasting and beautiful smile. However, like other dental restorations, composite fillings can't be permanent and may need to be replaced.
Our dentists will place the composite fillings in just one visit. They will numb the tooth to remove the decayed part. The area is then thoroughly cleaned before placing the new filling. If the decay is near the tooth's nerve, a special medication is applied for more protection. The composite filling is then precisely placed, carefully shaped, and polished to restore your tooth.
You will feel sensitivity to cold and hot after the fillings are placed. However, it will subside once your tooth gets accustomed to the new fillings. Practicing good oral and eating habits and regular dental visits will help in improving the life of fillings
We stay up-to-date with the latest technological advancements, so we can use the best available dental techniques to achieve optimal results with composite fillings. Our dedicated and professionally trained dental team is committed to providing great dental care to our patients.
