Spokane Valley Dental Fillings

Defeat cavities once and for all

Natural-looking composite dental fillings

Even the most conscientious brushers and flossers are liable to experience a cavity at some point in their life. Luckily, modern dental fillings look natural, are as durable as natural teeth, and are a comfortable and simple treatment.

At Spokane Family Smiles, we offer a convenient and comfortable dental fillings experience. During your 6 month exam and cleaning, we’ll recommend dental fillings if we think that you or a family member are experiencing a cavity.

Benefits of composite dental fillings
  • Removes tooth decay and strengthens your teeth before decay advances
  • Protects against the need for more complicated restorative treatments
  • Fills in your teeth with a composite resin that is tooth-colored and fits right in
  • Made of natural materials to ensure a long-lasting and safe dental filling

Cavity-free teeth are happy teeth!

“Tooth decay is a fact of life. Treating small cavities with a filling is a simple procedure that ensures more advanced treatment such as a root canal is avoided”.

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.
