Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs): Tooth-Colored Dental Fillings

How can we help you?

It is important to us that your questions about oral health care are answered completely. On this page we've provided answers to some of the questions we hear most frequently. If you have a question that's not listed here, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Tooth-Colored Dental Fillings

The unfortunate thing is that tooth decay, or cavities, are nearly impossible for you to notice in the early stages. You may even think “nothing hurts, my teeth must be okay!” By the time you start experiencing sensitivity or pain, the cavity has already done extensive damage. Any attempt to try and “live with the pain” will only doom the tooth towards a possible future tooth extraction.

Advanced Technology At Woodin Creek Dental

At Woodin Creek Dental we use digital xrays that allow us to visualize the smallest signs of decay. As with any other medical treatment, early intervention yields the best results. If caught early, cavities can be easily addressed with simple composite fillings.

Prevent Cavities With Dental Exams

The best way to prevent or catch cavities early is to see the dentist twice a year for exams. With regular check ups, we can catch small problems and prevent them from becoming huge, expensive, painful problems.

At Woodin Creek Dental, we offer an array of cosmetic dental treatments that can address a broken or chipped tooth. There’s often more than one option for fixing a cosmetic smile flaw, and our dentists will customize a solution that fits all your needs, including your budget.

Here are a couple of the ways that cosmetic dentistry in Woodinville, WA can solve the problem of a chipped tooth.

Cosmetic Dental Bonding

  • Cosmetic dental bonding – Bonding is the perfect solution for correcting minor smile flaws like a chipped tooth. We use tooth-colored filling material to fill in the chip, and the result is so natural looking that no one will notice you had any work done.

Porcelain Veneers

  • Porcelain veneers – Since veneers can be a significant investment, we probably wouldn’t recommend them to fix a single chipped tooth. But if you have several chipped teeth or other flaws like stained or misshapen teeth, a few veneers strategically placed may be the ideal solution.

There are lots of ways that we use cosmetic dentistry at our Woodinville, WA dental office to improve all sorts of smile imperfections. If you have a chipped too or another aesthetic flaw that bothers you, please call us to arrange a consultation with Dr. Goel or Dr. Chiang.

At Woodin Creek Dental, we now use a filling made of composite resin. They are commonly referred to as composite fillings. Composite resin will bond to your teeth, and stay in better than silver fillings. They tend to be very durable and natural looking. Composites are a great option for most people, but is not appropriate in all situations
Another option would be porcelain. Porcelain is a strong, very durable material, and it can be used to repair the defective parts of teeth, giving a very beautiful and natural result. 

If you are interested in replacing your old silver fillings, please contact our Woodin Creek Dental office. A member of our professional team will be happy to arrange an appointment at your convenience.

Dental bonding is when we use tooth colored composite fillings to rebuild broken or misshapen teeth. The doctors are skilled in using tooth colored composites to create natural looking restorations that blend in with the rest of your teeth. Dental bonding can be used to fix the following:

Dental Bonding Can Fix Many Issues

Broken, fractured teeth
Used to fill in spaces and gaps between teeth
Severely stained teeth due to medical conditions that cannot be whitened.

What Is Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding can be a cost-effective and effective way to restore the small chips and imperfections on your teeth. We use tooth-colored composite fillings to build up the teeth and restore its shape and function. One of the things that makes bonding effective is that we can match the fillings to your teeth in a natural fashion. The process is easy, the doctors prepare the teeth, and then they apply the composite filling and shapes it in a way that blends in properly.

You will leave the office with a new tooth! Dental bonding, however, is not appropriate for all people. Schedule a consult with Woodin Creek Dental to see if you are a good candidate.
