Restore The Natural Apperance of Your Teeth With Dental Fillings

Beautifully Matched Tooth-Colored Fillings

dental fillings seattleTraditional dental restoratives, or fillings, may include gold, porcelain, or composite. Newer dental fillings include ceramic and plastic compounds that mimic the appearance of natural teeth. These compounds, often called composite resins, are typically used on the front teeth where a natural appearance is important.

There are two different kinds of fillings: direct and indirect. Direct fillings are fillings placed into a prepared cavity in a single visit. Indirect fillings generally require two or more visits. These fillings include inlays, and veneers fabricated with ceramics or composites.

What's Right for Me:

There are several factors that can impact the performance, durability, longevity and expense of dental fillings such as:

  • The components used in the filling material
  • The amount of remaining tooth structure
  • Where and how the filling is placed
  • The chewing load that the tooth will bear
  • The length and number of visits needed to prepare and adjust the restored tooth

Dental Amalgam Fillings

For over 150 years, dental amalgam has been a commonly used filling. It is a mixture of mercury with at least one other metal. The advantages of amalgam is the low cost, strength, durability and bacteriostatic effects. The American Dental Association Council on Scientific Affairs has concluded that both amalgam and composite materials are considered safe and effective for tooth restoration.

Dental Composites | White Fillings

Also known as white fillings, dental composites or tooth colored fillings is the material of choice when it comes to matching your tooth color. They are the most popular dental filling since they can match your existing tooth color and they also solidly bond or glue to your tooth.
