Dental Fillings — Magnolia Dental Care

Magnolia Dental Care - Seattle, WA

Dental fillings are an example of a treatment that qualifies as both restorative and cosmetic. When plaque penetrates the tooth enamel, a cavity results. The treatment for most cavities is dental fillings. Fillings do exactly what their name indicates — fill the cavities left by decay. Once the decay is removed, we will then fill your tooth with a material that prevents further decay and restores your ability to chew.

To enhance the appearance of your smile, we may suggest using composite (tooth-colored) fillings instead of amalgam (silver). With composite fillings, there are no dark spots to detract from the natural beauty of your smile. In cases where tooth decay is advanced, fillings may be insufficient; in these cases, we recommend dental crowns.

The best way to avoid fillings is to avoid tooth decay. Be sure to brush at least twice a day, floss daily, and visit us at least twice a year to prevent cavities. If you do happen to need fillings, Magnolia Dental Care can provide a solution that will allow you to retain the aesthetics of your smile.

This means that we are able to incorporate both traditional methods that have been proven to be effective as well as new trends, materials, techniques, and technology to ensure that each patient receives optimal dental care at each visit.

The entire body is interconnected from head to toe — including the teeth, jaw, and other oral structures. For this reason, we provide our patients with holistic care. In conjunction with a Postural Restoration Institute trained physical therapist, we are able to help patients with dental issues that may be hindering their body’s ability to repair. The result is an improved quality of life.
