What are dental fillings?
A dental filling is a common dental restoration used to fill in cavities once decay has been removed from your tooth enamel. We used dental fillings in Seattle, Washington to prevent damage from spreading and to restore the strength and integrity of your natural tooth structure. To place a dental filling, Dr. Obiora E. Nkwonta will remove all signs of decay and sanitize the tooth. Then, your filling is applied in layers onto the tooth’s surface and hardened with a light. Generally, a dental filling can be applied in just one visit to our office.

What are the advantages of tooth-colored fillings?
In the past, many different materials were used for dental fillings, including metal and gold. Thanks to advances in modern dental technology, tooth-colored fillings, also referred to as white or composite fillings, are now the material of choice for dental fillings. Tooth-colored fillings are made from plastic and have many benefits. We can match the shade of the filling to the natural color of your tooth. Tooth-colored fillings are also exceptionally strong, bonding with your natural tooth structure. If you would like to learn more about the benefits of tooth-colored fillings, we encourage you to contact our friendly dentist and dental team at Rainier Dental Center today. We are excited to restore your smile!
