Tooth-Colored Fillings in

Cavities are a common occurrence, and nearly every patient will experience one eventually. Our practice offers tooth-colored fillings to restore teeth that have sustained minor damage due to a cavity.

Tooth-Colored Fillings in Snoqualmie

A cavity refers to a small hole that develops on the surface of a tooth. The most common reason for a tooth to develop a cavity is due to prolonged exposure from bacteria, tartar and plaque. But even with the best possible oral care, it's still possible for an occasional cavity to emerge. When cavities occur, we use tooth-colored fillings to seal off these holes. This will prevent further damage from occurring, and it will add to the overall strength and structure of the tooth.

Our practice uses composite tooth-colored fillings that consist of plastic resins and silica fillers. This composite mixture is known for being highly flexible, yet also incredibly durable. It also appears virtually indistinguishable from natural tooth material once it's hardened. This makes the mixture perfect for restoring teeth that have become damaged due to cavities.

What are tooth-colored fillings?

Tooth-colored fillings are dental restorations that are designed to restore the damage caused by cavities or other minor forms of tooth decay. This common restoration consists of applying a composite filling substance directly to a damaged tooth to seal off any holes that are present. This will add to the tooth’s strength and integrity and help prevent any further damage.

What happens if I don’t receive a filling?

If a filling is not applied, then the cavity will continue to grow larger over time. It's possible that food particles and bacteria could use the cavity to access the tooth’s inner structure and cause serious damage. If this happens, then root canal treatment might be needed to restore the damaged tooth. It's very important to receive a filling as early as possible if needed.

Are tooth-colored fillings noticeable?

It's unlikely that anyone else will recognize or notice a tooth-colored filling. The composite mixture we use is almost indistinguishable in appearance from natural teeth.

How long does it take to receive a filling?

Most fillings can be applied in a single visit to our practice.

Are tooth-colored fillings safe?

Tooth-colored composite fillings are known for being entirely safe. Unlike traditional metal fillings, tooth-colored composite fillings don't release any harmful toxins or other unwanted materials into the body. This makes them very safe for almost any type of patient.

Dr. Chang is very kind and professional. He really goes out of his way to make sure that you feel comfortable. He was great with my dad who can be challenging due to some health issues. I am glad that my family and I are now patients of Dr. Chang.
