Our dentist and team proudly offer dental fillings, a common and effective treatment designed to restore teeth damaged by decay to their normal function and shape. With a focus on preserving your oral health, we use the latest materials and techniques to ensure your fillings are both durable and aesthetically pleasing.

What are Dental Fillings?

Dental fillings are used to repair cavities and restore the integrity of a tooth compromised by decay. After removing the decayed material from the tooth, we clean the affected area and then fill the cavity with a filling material. This material can be made from various substances such as gold, porcelain, a composite resin (tooth-colored fillings), or an amalgam (an alloy of mercury, silver, copper, tin and sometimes zinc), which each have their own advantages depending on the location and extent of the decay.

What to Expect With Dental Fillings

The process for getting a dental filling typically requires just one visit to Seattle Smiles Company. During the procedure, our dentist will numb the area around the tooth with a local anesthetic to ensure comfort. The decayed material is then carefully removed, the area is cleaned, and the cavity is filled. The filling material is shaped and polished to match the contour of the rest of the tooth, ensuring a smooth finish that restores function and maintains bite alignment.
