Tooth Colored Fillings in Spokane
Dental fillings are a way to restore a tooth damaged by decay back to its normal function and shape. When a dentist gives you a filling, he first removes the decayed tooth material, cleans the affected area, and then fills the cleaned out cavity with a filling material.
Composite is a tooth-colored material that matches the shade of your teeth to look like a natural tooth. Your doctor has different shades to choose from so that he can best match the shade of your natural tooth. He then sculpts the material to have the cusps and ridges just like your natural tooth. Your dentist is also an artist!
If you have decayed teeth and are in need of fillings it is always a good idea not to put off treatment for too long, as tooth decay does grow and spread and can turn into more serious conditions.
