Tooth-colored fillings from Smile Matters Inc. aim to restore health to damaged teeth. Also known as composite or white fillings, they can repair teeth in a natural-looking way. They can be used for decayed, chipped or fractured teeth, to close gaps, and to make other repairs related to the shape, size and color of teeth.
There are many advantages to tooth-colored fillings including:
- They match the natural color of teeth.
- They can restore most of the original strength of a tooth.
- Tooth sensitivity is minimal and brief.
- They harden quickly.
- They may be used on both back and front teeth.
Placing Tooth-Colored Fillings
First, we use local anesthesia to numb the area. After that, any decay is removed, and the tooth is cleaned and dried. Finally, the filling material is placed on the tooth and is shaped and polished to provide a healthy, natural look.
If you have existing silver fillings that you would like to replace with our tooth-colored, metal-free fillings, we can help you with that as well. For more information about our natural-looking restorations, call us at (206) 201-0656 to make an appointment. Our practice is located at 509 Olive Way, Suite 1033, Seattle, WA 98101.
