White Fillings

What is a White Filling?

White filling is a dental restorative material used to restore the function, integrity and morphology of missing tooth structure. The structural loss typically results from caries or external trauma. It is also lost intentionally during tooth preparation to improve the aesthetics or the physical integrity of the intended restorative material. Dental restoration also refers to the replacement of missing tooth structure that is supported by dental implants.


Composite fillings are usually placed in one appointment. While the tooth is numb, your dentist in Everett will remove decay as necessary. The space will then be thoroughly cleaned and carefully prepared before the new filling is placed. If the decay was near the nerve of the tooth, a special medication will be applied for added protection.

The composite filling will then be precisely placed, shaped, and polished, restoring your tooth to its original shape and function. It is normal to experience sensitivity to hot and cold when composite fillings are first placed, however this will subside shortly after your tooth acclimates to the new filling.You will be given care instructions at the conclusion of your treatment. Good oral hygiene practices, eating habits, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new fillings.

The whole office staff is awesome. I am not a dentist loving person, but these people make you comfortable and relaxed. Doctor Young Park is great at those awful roof of the mouth shots.

I've been going to this dentist for the last couple of years. Dr. Park is great, knowledgeable and personal. The assistants there have been working there for a long period of time as well, so I recognize familiar faces when I go.
