About tooth-colored fillings

Cavities, one of the most common dental problems, occur when bacteria attack your enamel. Previously, dentists filled dental cavities with an amalgam material, a combination of metals, such as silver or mercury. We now know that amalgam fillings don't bond very well with the enamel, and the mercury is hazardous to your health. At [email protected] in Seattle, WA, Dr. Hal Kussick offers tooth-colored fillings made of a composite resin to fill cavities and protect the tooth. Dr. Kussick can also take out old metal fillings and replace them with tooth-colored ones for a safer and better-looking cavity treatment.

What to expect with tooth-colored fillings

Receiving a tooth-colored filling at [email protected] is generally a straightforward procedure. We start by numbing the treatment area to minimize your discomfort. If needed, patients can receive different sedation methods to reduce any dental fears or anxieties. As soon as you're ready, Dr. Kussick removes the decayed enamel with a unique dental drill that he selects based on the location of the cavity and the level of decay. Once we have treated the enamel and disinfected the area, we fill the cavity with the composite resin material and set it. Finally, Dr. Kussick will smooth the filling material so it feels comfortable and matches your natural teeth.
