Composite Fillings and Amalgam Fillings in Seattle

If you're dealing with pain in a tooth or have noticed black on one of your molars, you might be experiencing tooth decay. Tooth decay is damage that occurs as acids eat away at your tooth enamel, creating a cavity. If left untreated, tooth decay can lead to significant tooth pain and greater issues in your mouth. Thankfully, however, the treatment is quick and straightforward.

Treating tooth decay with fillings

To treat tooth decay and cavities, our skilled dental team at Theron Baker DDS will clean the area and fill the tooth with amalgam fillings or composite fillings, depending on what's best for you and your mouth. The process involves numbing a small area of the mouth surrounding the tooth, so you don't feel the procedure. We will then remove the decay and replace it with a filling, so the hole created by the decay doesn't lead to further problems. After receiving a filling, you simply need to treat the filled tooth like any other, brushing your teeth and flossing regularly to prevent problems in other teeth.

Composite fillings

The primary advantage of composite fillings is that they can be colored to match your existing teeth, blending in with your smile and becoming nearly invisible.

Amalgam fillings

This type of filling has withstood the test of tim, being used by dentists for more than 150 years. The downside to amalgam is that it is silver and therefore doesn't blend in with your teeth, a consideration for more visible fillings.
