Dental Fillings in Kennewick

Achieve a Natural, Healthier Smile with Tooth-Colored Fillings

Do you have a cavity? If so, chances are that your dentist will prescribe a filling. A cavity is decay and subsequent erosion in a tooth. It occurs when leftover food interacts with bacteria and saliva in the mouth, forming plaque. If ignored, this plaque reacts to acids in your mouth and eats away at your enamel. To eliminate the problem, a dentist must drill into the tooth, remove the decay, and fill the hole. Fillings are also sometimes necessary for broken, cracked, or damaged teeth.

At Grandridge Dental, our experienced dentist, Dr. Morgan, is ready to help. We offer tooth-colored fillings to maintain a natural appearance. We are affordable, offer payment plans, and accept most insurances.

Traditional Fillings vs. Tooth-Colored Fillings

Dentists can fill your teeth with a variety of materials, including: ​​​​​

  • Gold
  • Porcelain
  • Composite resin
  • Silver amalgam
  • Plastic
  • Glass ionomer

We believe that tooth-colored materials offer the most natural look. They can also be safer than other options. Many patients are concerned about the mercury, zinc, tin, and copper in silver amalgam fillings. Our tooth-colored fillings do not use these questionable elements.

How a Filling Works

When you come in for your filling, we will look at your x-rays to locate the cavity. Next, we will use a local anesthetic to numb the area near your tooth for painless drilling. Once we remove all of the decay, we prepare the hollowed area for filling. This involves giving the area a good cleaning and removing all bacteria. If we drill close to the nerve, we may apply a layer of composite resin or another material for protection.

Once the tooth is prepped, we apply the tooth colored filling in layers. After each layer, we solidify the application with the help of a special light. Following multiple applications, we polish, trim, and shape any excess material. The result is a filling that is hardly noticeable.
