Tooth-Colored Fillings – Tukwila, WA

Fast, Natural-Looking Cavity Treatment

Tooth-colored fillings in Tukwila, WA are perhaps our most common restorative treatments that our patients require. It is our goal to restore cavities early, keeping fillings as small as possible. Not only does this mean that decay is caught before any real damage is done, but it also means that the maximum amount of tooth enamel can be saved.

Tooth-Colored White Fillings

There’s no need to keep using silver amalgam fillings when there’s a better option. Cosmetic dentist Dr. Lance Timmerman implements tooth-colored composite restorations in his dental office. Composite fillings bond with the tooth to help rebuild the enamel rather than simply patch it up like a silver filling.

With a tooth-colored filling, your teeth will match each other, and the composite fillings will blend right in – there won’t be any dark grey or silver areas showing when you laugh or talk. Tooth-colored fillings are the most conservative type of restoration available for minor cavities.

White fillings are perfect for:

  • Small cavities
  • Chipped or broken front teeth
  • Cavities near the gum line
  • Exposed root surfaces
  • Replacing silver fillings

Mercury Free, Minimally Invasive

White fillings are metal and mercury free. Most of them will last as long as 10 years when cared for properly. Since the material is capable of bonding with your tooth, composite fillings are the least invasive type of restoration available.

Using this method allows Dr. Timmerman to maximize the amount of healthy tooth structure already in your mouth, leading to a stronger repair and healthier smile overall.
