Composite Dental Fillings - Washington and Oregon - Smiles Dental

Composite Dental Fillings


For a tooth with minor to moderate damage, our dentists may recommend a composite dental filling. At Smiles Dental, we exclusively offer mercury-free composite fillings at our Washington and Oregon locations. This is part of our commitment to your oral and overall health. Composite fillings can also be blended to match your natural tooth color, providing an aesthetic restoration.

To learn more about the advantages of composite dental fillings, we invite you to call or visit one of our nearby dental offices today.

What Is a Dental Filling?

A dental filling is a restoration made of a various material (silver amalgam and composite fillings being the two most popular types) used to repair or “fill” in tooth damage. You may need a filling if you have a minor fracture or chip in your tooth, a cavity, or have experienced tooth decay. Dental fillings are used to try and restore your tooth back to its original shape and restore full function to make your smile healthy again.

The Filling Process

If you’re wondering how the process works, it’s pretty simple. All it requires is one visit to our office. First we’ll remove the damaged/decayed portion of your tooth, make sure it’s clean, fill the tooth with the filling material and shape it to your tooth, and let the material harden. After that, your smile is ready to shine!

If your tooth is decayed or damaged, a dental filling may be a great choice for restoring your oral health and function. We invite you to call or visit us today to learn more about dental fillings and to schedule your next appointment with our team. We look forward to caring for your smile!
