Common dental filling questions
How can I avoid cavities
The best way to avoid cavities is by practicing good at-home oral hygiene habits and coming to our office twice a year for cleanings and exams. Additionally, limiting sugary foods and drinking lots of water will put your smile in a position to succeed
Are composite fillings safe?
Absolutely! Composite fillings are mercury-free and don’t include any harmful substances.
Are fillings covered by insurance?
While all dental insurance plans are different, many insurance policies consider fillings a restorative treatment and will cover a portion of your Spokane Valley dental fillings treatment.
