Tooth-Colored Fillings


When teeth experience minor damage or decay, dental fillings are used to restore their function and appearance. Fillings are commonly used to repair the damage caused by cavities, including unwanted holes or voids in a person’s teeth. Dental fillings work by sealing off spaces that can be used by food particles and bacteria to access the inner portions of a tooth. At Grandridge Dental, we are proud to offer tooth-colored fillings which provide a more natural appearance than traditional metal fillings.

Also known as composite fillings, tooth-colored fillings consist of a combination of quartz and glass fillers housed inside of a resin medium. This type of filling is durable and able to fully withstand the pressures associated with everyday chewing.

The process of receiving a composite filling starts by removing any decayed portions of the tooth, as well as any existing filling material. Once the tooth has been cleaned, a special filling material that matches the tooth’s natural color is applied. This material is hardened using a dental curing light to give it strength and stability. Finally, the filling material is shaped and polished, so the tooth has a completely natural appearance. Once completed, the patient will be immediately able to resume their normal eating, brushing and flossing habits.

If you are suffering from a cavity and you would like to learn more about tooth-colored fillings, please call our office at (509) 737-1800 to schedule an appointment.

Our Happy Patients

"Wonderful experience from beginning to end. Front end staff helpful in setting an appointment for me even with a few reschedules on my part. They also helped me to budget, prioritize, and make my treatment plan attainable financially. Many of my 20 yr old fillings had reached the end of their life so there is plenty of work to be done. The hygienist and Dr. Morgan both took time to explain the x-rays and treatment plan so that I understood the state of my dental health. Top notch staff and facility."

"Been going about 13 yrs. They're very empathetic to my fear of dentistry procedures, stemming from childhood. The staff, from the front desk, to dental assistants, nurses, and Dr Morgan are all a pleasure to do business with. My son, has been going there about 4 years, currently age 5, and he has never left afraid. Grandridge truly does a fabulous job making us both feel as comfortable as possible. Thank you, and well done Grandridge Dental! We love you and your staff!"
